GMS Update - 4th August 2021

Please find below the release notes for the deployment that took place on the 4th August: 

  • Age Grade Registration will be referred to as ‘Player Affiliation’ in the Age Grade game from 21/22 and the ‘Re-Affiliation’ process will work in the same way as ‘Re-Registration'.  All terminology in GMS and profiles have been changed to reflect this. 
  • All Age Grade players have been unaffiliated (de-registered) for season 21/22 in line with the annual Age Grade affiliation process that requires parents/guardians to affiliate their child annually.  Parents/guardians simply need to log in and complete the Renew Affiliation form for their child, club administrators do not need to approve renewing affiliations. 
  • Age Grade Registrars can now unaffiliate (de-register) AG players via the ‘Player Management’ Module > ‘Players’ menu.
  • Clubs should encourage parents/guardians to complete the online Player Affiliation Form to affiliate their child. However, where Registrars are required to assist, the ‘Affiliate Player’ option has been added to each player record under the People module on the Summary page. This option will allow Club Administrators to ‘affiliate’ players where this cannot be completed by the parent/guardian.  
  • Club Age Grade administrators will no longer need to access Player Registration v12 module. 

  • Update to Personal Profile to enable ability for online adult ‘Player Affiliation’ to be completed. A pilot will be undertaken during the 2021/2022 season with 4 CB’s, however the option to ‘affiliate’ with a club will be open to all players.
