With the season shortly upon us I thought I would filter some key information that has been circulated from both England Rugby (Community Game Update) and Hampshire RFU.  I hope this helps:



GMS: Age Grade Registration: For Parents & Club Registrars:  The RFU Game Management System (GMS) has introduced an updated process to record age grade registrations in GMS. Club registrars, with appropriate access in GMS, now have the ability to distribute a unique URL to parents that are interested in signing their child up to play at the registrar’s club. Parents will be required to create a record for themselves and their child. Club registrars will then have the ability to login to GMS, review who have requested registration, and process these requests via the Player Registration module. These steps will assist the club in complying with GDPR and reduce the administrative time required to process registration requests that a club receives.

GMS have created two step-by-step guides;

The first guide outlines the steps a parent must take to fill in the form (Click here for form) provided by the club to create an account and request a registration for their club.

The second provides guidance for a club registrar to process the requested registrations in GMS.(Click here for form)


GMS – Roles & Permission changes:  Your club data officer has received correspondence from the RFU advising them that all individuals will be defaulted back to level 0. (Which will only grant access for that user to access and edit their own personal details). Your club data officer and Hon Sec have the ability to assign any individual within their club with the level of permission appropriate to their position and responsibility.  If you have any questions about access could you please liaise directly with your club Data Officer / Hon Sec


Regulation 15 Age Grade Rugby (Click here and then please file safely):  This is your go to document for Age grade rugby. This has been re-drafted with the aim of being more accessible and digestible for clubs. For any questions on the regulations, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Accidental Injury – Loss of Income Cover:  RFU and Howden have arranged a personal accident cover that can pay up to £300 per week to players in nominated teams if they injure themselves whilst playing or training, and are unable to work. Cover for the whole season can be arranged for just £980 per team. Full details on the England Rugby Insurance website at englandrugbyinsurance.co.uk/TTD.
