LeagueNet is the Rugby Football Leagues participation and competition management system. The LeagueNet system is where you go to register online as a player on an annual basis, which replaces the paper form that has been used in the past.
If you are a Match Official or Coach you will also register annually on LeagueNet.
LeagueNet is also being used by Clubs and Leagues to manage competitions.
The Rugby Football League wants to provide a registration process that is fit for the 21st century. Registering online is no different than any other aspect of online interaction such as booking your holiday or signing up to social media.
The benefits of registering online include:
Online registrations mean that the registration process will be streamlined and become more efficient allowing players to participate without having to wait for paper registrations to be processed.
Yes they are. The Rugby Football League has been securely holding registration details on a previous system for the past 20 years. LeagueNet simply replaces what we had before.
The Rugby Football League has to be compliant with the current Data Protection Act and the new GDPR legislation that will be introduced in Spring 2018.
SportsTG, the software providers of the LeagueNet system, have been working with other major sports organisations (including the NRL) for over 15 years without a major security or data breach.
These three organisations have always had access to registration data through the paper form. Moving online means your data is now more secure ina centralised platform and will not be sent be email or post.
Documentation uploaded as part of the registration process in order to prove the age of a player will be deleted upon approval of the registration.
If you do not have an email address you can get one for free. These are available from many providers such as Gmail and Outlook.
If you do not have access to the Internet, please contact your club so they can help you with access or visit a local library for free access.
Players under the age of 18 at the time of registering must have parent/guardian permission to register to play Rugby League.
We would discourage any Club for setting up a Club members email address as this would bring a legal responsibility as you would be registering players without the parent's permission. A parent must be the one giving permission for their child to play.
When a player/parent completes the registration form they give permission for their information to be used for operational purposes. The email address will only be used for operational purposes and to ease the burden on the online registration process.
We will not be using anyone’s email address for marketing purposes unless they tick the box giving the Rugby Football League permission to contact them upon registering. The Rugby Football League will not provide any data to external third parties.
