Game Management System Information

SHARE

As you will be aware the Adult League fixtures have been published for the new season and are now available on the GMS system, which your Club Administrator on the system will have access to. Once player registration is open on GMS, you will be able to access them there under your own account.  

Please note there have been a number of changes since fixtures were originally posted at fixtures.englandhockey.co.uk so please use the GMS version as these are the most up to date.

These Adult Leagues will be administered using the new Game Management System (GMS). We are now able to provide more information on the initial functionality of this new system and what it means for your role in hockey. 
 
The initial launch of GMS will focus on ensuring the basic requirements are all in place. We will be rolling out more functionality and improvements in the planned for development phases, over the coming months. The GMS is focused on streamlining competition administration for clubs and administrators.  GMS will not replace the club management systems that clubs use.  
 
The GMS is now live and your local competition organisers are familiarising themselves with the new system. From the middle of August training opportunities will be available for competition administrators, closely followed by training and tutorials for club administrators, team administrators and players. It is critical that all clubs and competition organisers attend this training as all will be required to use the GMS in the forthcoming season. 

The following roles should sign up for training on how to use the new system: 

  • Competition Administrator – people who run junior, adult or masters’ competitions such as leagues, cups or local festivals – usually Area or County (Sub Area) representatives. 
  • Club Administrator – key club committee members such as Club Administrator, Fixtures Secretary, or Membership Secretary  
  • Team Administrator - Team Captains and/or Managers  

What will GMS do and what does it mean for me?
