The Game Management System (GMS) is the RFU's / England Rugby's central database through which players (and club members) are registered, pay their club membership subscriptions, coaches and referees are registered and their training records maintained, fixtures are arranged and results recorded (for the 15-a-side game only) and much, much more.
It is also the central system we use for ensuring our volunteers working in the child workforce are DBS checked and the health, safety & wellbeing of our members is managed with regards to medical records, injury reports and training for our volunteers and players.
In previous years, all of the above has existed (and been managed behind the scenes) but the addition of the 3rd party app "Pitchero" for team availability has made the administration of the club a lot more complicated. Over the coming year, we'll be migrating all of our systems over to GMS, including our website and email server (currently hosted on Pitchero).
1. Register your details and, for Mini and Youth parents, your child(ren)'s details. Important: Player Registration will not complete until you validate your email address. We also cannot have children registered as members of the club without at least 1 adult also being registered alongside them as a parent or guardian.
2. Purchase your Club membership for the season. This is separate from and independent of Player Registration.
