Renew Age Grade Child Affiliation Process

Age Grade Players that were ‘Affiliated’ in 21/22 can ‘Re-Affiliate’ to their club (as of the 1st July 2022) without the need for club administrators to approve, only new ‘Affiliations’ require club approval.

This example shows a parent/guardian how to renew a player affiliation for an existing child (Age Grade player) who is already linked to a club as a player and the parents/guardians have competed the player affiliation form previously.


Once you have logged into GMS as the linked parent/guardian, on your Dashboard click on your child’s profile under Family and Friends and then click on the link for Renew Player Affiliation.

Top tip:

If the option for a parent or guardian to ‘Affiliate as Player’ is greyed out as per below mobile device example, this is due to being logged into the child/Age Grade players account and not logged in as the parent/linked adults account, as only over 18-year-olds can complete the player affiliations for children/AG players.

Please sign out of this account and log into the linked parent/guardian account to affiliate or renew your child(children) player affiliations. If you need further guidance with how to affiliate/renew affiliations, or assistance with resetting your password then please visit the Help Portal for articles on these with step by step videos via the link here  

**If your child is not linked to your account – please contact your club directly who can link your accounts (providing that both accounts are linked to the club) so you can then complete this process.

This will take you through to the Player Affiliation Form which will be mostly pre-populated as this is a renewal.  Simply check all the details are still correct, fill out any missing details, tick the relevant consents/waivers and click SAVE.  

You can edit or fill in any incorrect details by clicking on the pencil, or '…' icons and '+' to add.

The parent/guardian should then receive an automated email confirming completion of 'Renewal of the Age Grade Affiliation', and this will now show as 'Affiliatedunder the club on the child's profile under 'My Organisations', and this Player Affiliation is now complete.
