A useful checklist for clubs to help get GMS ready for the new season
During the season it would be a good idea to make sure all senior players both Male & Female complete their Medical Condition and Emergency Contact details, so when affiliation comes along in 2023-24 all senior players will be ready, and they have their login details available. They will not be able to affiliate without this information being recorded.
If you need training on GMS please initially complete the form at https://help.rfu.com/support/solutions/articles/103000246628-gms-support-and-training which will set the wheels in motion for a training (probably David Wookey for our area) to be tasked to provide some training for your club
If you experiencing problems and require help please check out the new knowledge base at https://help.rfu.com/support/home where you will find lots of guides to help resolve whatever issue you have. If you still struggle or need a nudge in the correct direction contact David
Remember that all Age Grade parents must register (no longer affiliation) their children to play annually. Soon - expected next season - this will also be the case for Senior male and female players (obviously by the players themselves) This should eliminate the delays in completing the registration form and club registrars having to then make the registration, Club registrars (age grade, Senior Men and Senior Women) merely check the details and approve the registration. I have no idea yet on how transfers will work, but this page will be updated when that detail is known.
It is optional whether memberships are taken via GMS. This aspect is coordinated direct by First Sports Ltd who are the RFU developers for the system. If you have membership issues please contact First Sports direct on [email protected]
