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