The IRFU have launched a new player registration system called RugbyConnect, replacing their old Clubhouse system. ALL parents of youth players, and ALL adult players, are now required to set up accounts and register players by clicking here. Select the package that is right for you - and click the "Register" button. If you do not already have a sportlomo account, you will need to flip from the "Log In" tab to the "Sign Up" tab. Once your Sportlomo account is set up - you can re-log in here.
The system also processes club subscriptions - and we will be proceeding to use this system for the 2020/21 season - replacing the old Pitchero Payments on our club website.
Laptop pr PC is best - it can be difficult on a phone. Please be careful to key in a correct date of birth, as this is used to match your new record with historic IRFU data. If you know your player’s IRFU number, please also provide it (Ask your coach if you are unsure). You will need to upload 2 photos (which you can take on your phone or tablet):
- Passport style photo of player (head and shoulders looking straight ahead, against plain light background)
- Photo of either birth cert or passport
It is important to register for 2 reasons:
- No player will be able to play a competitive game without being registered on the system
- The system will soon feature a paperless personal declaration form for COVID-19 compliance - and attendance tracking. This will eliminate the need for paper-form filling or Forms apps, and will be easier for parents and coaches
A more detailed IRFU guide is available here.
- Re the question: "What school did you / are you attending?" - for parents registering, this question refers to the player.
- At the end of the form, when prompted for "Signature" - just key in your own name as parent
- We have had reports that some browsers do not respond well to the question: "Is there anything about the player’s general health that you wish to tell us. If yes, please tick this box." If you are having any difficulty entering health conditions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
- When selecting Family Packages, please select the one with the correct number of siblings, as sibling fields cannot be left blank.
