Age Grade Affiliation and Registration

As we start the new rugby season, please could you log into the RFU Game Management System (GMS) and update your own information and your player(s) information.

From Season 2021/22 Age Grade Registration is being re-named Player Affiliation to align with the adult game. Age Grade Affiliation is a fully online, annual process for club players between U6 and U18. RFU Regulation requires players to be affiliated online each season within 45 days of the start of the season or from first joining the club.

This simple process involves a player’s parent or guardian affiliating their child on an annual basis on the RFU Game Management System (GMS) and being approved by the Club Registrar.

Existing Players

For an existing player, the parent updates a child’s details with any new medical information, emergency contact details and consents, linked directly from their own Personal Profile page.

You can log in to GMS at

Please follow the explanation in the link above from the GMS Help Portal if you are unsure how to re-affiliate your child player.

If you do not know your Username or if your child is not linked to your account, please email (Registrar for Bugbrooke RFC).


New Players

For brand new players, there is a simple Profile creation and affiliation system on the same platform in GMS. The online, parent led process ensures that parents and players are in control of their unique individual record through their lifetime in rugby, ensuring data security and compliance with applicable data protection law. It provides more consistent, accurate and up to date information for clubs and the RFU to help plays and parents enjoy their Age Grade Rugby and transition into the adult game. This process is now mobile optimised and enables parents to log onto GMS using mobile devices to complete the process.
