Youth Information

The RFU are keen for all clubs to process their youth player registrations on-line and as such RugbyFirst is currently undergoing changes, some of which have just gone live.

ID Cards (now available)

There has been the introduction of a template for ID cards to enable these to be printed directly by clubs from RugbyFirst. As such we will no longer be supplying ID cards and wallets to clubs.

Player Transfers (expected to go live end of August 2008)

These changes will include the ability for Club Youth Registrars to transfer players. This will happen in the same way as the Adult transfer process whereby if a player is already registered with a club the new club must submit a Notification of Transfer form to the player’s current club. When registering a player online this form will be automatically generated and the new club must print this off and send it to the current club. At this stage the requirement to submit a Notification of Transfer form is seen as a matter of courtesy rather than Regulation.

ID Cards

There will also be the introduction of a template for ID cards to enable these to be printed directly by clubs from RugbyFirst. As such we will no longer be supplying ID cards and wallets to clubs.

Record Keeping

Once the player has been registered the Club will be required to keep a copy of this transfer document, together with the other registration documents for a minimum of 12 months.

Guidance

On-line Youth Player Registration guidance can be found at www.rfu.com/youthregistration and contains detailed instructions of the registration process including how to get started.

Communication

We will notify via email all Youth Registrars (both clubs and CBs) who are currently registered users on RugbyFirst, once these changes have taken effect.

Technical Assistance

We very much appreciate your assistance with overseeing this process locally and would be grateful if you could pass this information to the key people at your clubs. I suggest that if they require technical assistance with the system then they should contact the RugbyFirst support desk on 0870 9992003 or rugbyfirstsupport@therfu.com
