Game Management System (GMS) Update - November 2021

We are pleased to inform clubs that player registration is now available on GMS and clubs can start to register players at all levels again. Players can register using this link https://gms.englandhockey.co.uk

Anyone that has already registered does not need to do so again. Instructions on how to register are here if required: https://www.englandhockey.co.uk/play/gms-player

This process will be followed by leagues & competitions starting to require teamsheets & matchsheets to be completed, this is starting with the Area Adult Premier Divisions and will work through the structure progressing steadily over the coming weeks. Each Area League & Competition will communicate when they expect teamsheets & matchsheets to be used, the timing will vary from Area to Area. The teamsheet & matchsheets capture appearances, scorers and card details that will allow a player and a club to build up detailed hockey histories over time.

Improvements are continuing to be made to the GMS System, the focus has been on the performance of the system at peak times. In the last two weekends good steps forward were made on this and now the focus is back on continuing to improve system functionality.

The https://matches.englandhockey.co.uk/ site now includes junior and England Hockey Championship fixtures. Clubs can see all their results in one place by double clicking on one of their club teams results.

There are already over 4000 members of England Hockey Officiating representing so many of the club umpires that are out supporting the game every week. This club offers free and paid membership opportunities and allows officials to be part of the wide officiating community.

We continue to thank clubs for their patience with GMS as it establishes. With over 50,000 fixtures on the system and over 14,000 results recorded so far it is already comfortably the biggest hockey system that has existed in hockey in England. At England Hockey we are committed to ensuring the system and supporting structures continue to receive the investment that they need. Improvements will continue to be made over coming weeks and months.
