Game Management System





From September 2020 the RFU require all parents to now use the RFU Game Management System (GMS).  Using GMS ensures that parents and players are in control of their own data and unique individual record through their lifetime in rugby. It provides more consistent, accurate and up-to-date information for clubs and the RFU to help players and parents enjoy their Age Grade Rugby and transition into the adult game.

Removing paper form completion and storage reduces the burden on everyone, streamlines the process significantly and ensures GDPR compliance from a data security and retention perspective.  This also brings the process more in line with adult player registration helping the players, parents, and volunteers in the Age Grade and senior sections of our rugby clubs and in particular, streamlining the workload of our Club Registrars.

If you have any questions about GMS then please contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How do I access GMS ?

Existing Player We will send you an email directly from GMS which will contain your unique RFU ID and a link to the login page.   It is important to note that there is no password attached to your ID so you will need to select “forgot password” and create a password for your account.   Please remember to verify your email when requested.   Please do not create a new account in the event you have problems accessing your existing account.

New Player Emails will be sent to parents of all existing players that includes their username.  You will need to request forgot password and then set your own unique password.   Follow our tutorials for step by step guide to re-registration. 

What information is already in GMS?

If your child/children are already members at the end of Season 2019/2020 then they will already have been registered on GMS and will have a unique RFU ID.  Parents/carers/guardians are now required by the RFU to update the system to complete important information in the form of consents e.g. photograph, medical, next of kin etc., that must be completed by the parent/carer/guardian.

What happens if I leave the club?

If you are moving to a new club you can update this information in your profile.  Please speak to your new club who will be able to assist in moving you in GMS.  

If you are no longer going to play rugby you can make your account “inactive” on GMS.   Please contact us if you have any problems in making your account inactive. Unfortunately we do not offer membership refunds during the season. 

Is there any training for GMS?

In addition to the online resources provided we are very happy to set up 1:1 or group training sessions on request.   If you have any queries or questions about GMS please email us at

5 November 2020 Parliament yesterday voted in favour of the Government’s national lockdown proposals aimed at curbing the increase in Covid-19 cases in England, which take effect from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December. In addition, the Government has announced the cessation of all community team sports during this period, which applies to Age Grade and Adult rugby activities below Championship and Premier 15s. This means that all our activities have stopped.
With effect from 5 November 2020, we return to Stage A on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. This means that no competitive or formal rugby activities can be undertaken until at least Wednesday 2 December.
The RFU will now review what the implications of this national lockdown plan mean for clubhouses, schools, colleges, universities, etc., and will provide more detailed information in the Covid-19 Community Game Update.
We recognize that this is hugely disappointing for everyone, but as soon as we are able to recommence our activities in a safe way you can be assured play and our clubhouse will open.
Lastly, we would like to thank all our members, coaches, players, parents and those of you who support the club. Please keep safe and we will see you very soon we hope!
Clubhouse Our clubhouse is also now closed until further notice. However, our car park will continue to host the Mobile Testing Unit during the week. Please contact the government website if you need to book a test as Tewkesbury RFC cannot assist you in this process.
