The U17s and U18s have combined to form two Colts teams this season.  Players born between 1 August 1999 and 31 July 2000 are eligible for the 17s.. We train or play home matches on Sunday mornings at Garrett Green,  We also have light midweek training on Wednesday evenings normally at the club on Burntwood Lane.

We have a squad of 25-30 players, a blend of players who joined in the past couple of seasons and those who joined at the start of mini rugby at the age of 5 or 6.

We warmly welcome all new players.  We fully support the core rugby values of Teamwork, Respect, Discipline and Sportsmanship.  The U17s core desire in particular is that we want all our players to enjoy their rugby experience with us.

We are a successful age group with a focus on player development and fun. In 2015/16 we will play in Surrey league three.

If you want to play good rugby and have fun, give us a try.

We are always looking for more players to join our squad and welcome players of any level of experience.

Our squad of around 30 players are coached by a team of 4 RFU qualified coaches, enough to ensure everyone gets the attention and guidance they need.

Our culture is open and friendly and we believe parents should enjoy the experience of our squad as well as the boys.

As well as playing league matches, we organise as many friendly games as possible to ensure all boys play as much competitive rugby as they want.

You can join us for training at 10.00 to 12.00 when we are at home (see Fixtures List and More Info) and if after a couple of sessions you like what you see we can take you through the registration process.

At Ironsides U15's we take our rugby seriously.

We're a community club that play hard and fair and we play with passion – to win. But when the game is done, its done, and we're down to the clubhouse after a handshake for a burger, a drink and a laugh.

We run two squads in Divisions 2 & 5 of the Surrey League. We are a local team but our boys represent schools far and wide from Ernest Bevin, Chestnut Grove  and St Cecilia's to Whitgift, Dulwich and St Paul's, to not to mention our international friends down at Lycee Francais!

We always welcome new players, at any time who want to play rugby, whether they've played before or are new to the game to become part of a new family – the Ironsides family.



 

Our coaches are passionate and responsible, they take their duties seriously. We want to play exciting flowing rugby and we want our boys to become better more skilled fitter players and better people!

Like every proper rugby club we go on tour - over the years we've been to  Wales, France, Ireland and Spain - tours that will be remembered long after the final whistle was blown. But remember what goes on tour stays on tour.

We've got some top talent -  with five boys represented in the Surrey county age group. But we've got plenty of lads who have only just started playing. We believe there's hidden talent everywhere, come along, have fun and you'll be treated with respect and made to feel welcome and a valued member of the Ironsides U15's.

Welcome to the Ironsides under 14's. We consist of between 30 and 40 players, all new members are warmly welcomed! Whether you are completely new to the game or already have several years under your belt.

Year on year we aim to improve the rugby skills and knowledge of all our players, as well as encourage sportsmanship and strong friendships to flourish. Our focus is always on playing the game of rugby during our mixed training sessions. We will have a team playing in Surrey League Waterfall cup starting in January 2018 and we're involved in inter club friendlies, in which all of our boys will be involved throughout the season. 

As with past years we plan to go away on tour in the late spring 2018 and will be organising the tour over the next couple of months so keep an eye out for details.

You can also simply turn up on Sundays, when we are training at home ground at ATA sports ground, Openview, SW18 3PD.

Welcome to the Ironsides U13’s Team Page

We train at the ATA ground which is on Openview with a  9.50am for a 10am start, through to 12.00pm.
 
We are an all-inclusive club and welcome kids of all standards and cater the training to suit all. We have two teams entered into the Surrey League and also arrange other friendly club fixtures both at home and away to ensure that all players get to play in matches over the season.
 
When the weather is bad, there will be occasions where we are not allowed to play to minimize ground damage and cancellations may not be until 10am on the Sunday. If we do know in advance we will put a notice on the website, so please check on Sunday mornings before you head out and/or  via the in-house availability system.

The in-house availability system is used to publish fixtures and coordinate availability through to selection so please lookout for emails from U13.Manager@ironsidesrugby.com with a click through YES or NO to confirm availability which the coaches can then see for selections.

As it is email based, it is key that your child’s details and your contact emails are correct on the site.

Kit is important as the children won’t be allowed to train without mouth-guards and studded rugby boots. Good waterproofs, gloves and a hat when it’s cold and/or wet and some children wear head-guards and body padding however these are not required.
 
We look forward to welcoming you to this great club. If you have any queries or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask one of the coaches or managers.

Welcome to the Ironsides U12's Website Page

We train at King George's Park SW18 4GB (Mapleton Road end) from 10am to 12pm on a Sunday but please check the 'this week' tab for information for any particular Sunday as some times we are all away at fixtures. On training days please arrive for 9.45am to be ready to train for 10am.

We are an all-inclusive club and welcome kids of all standards and cater the training to suit all. We have festivals and club fixtures both at home and away and we ensure that all players get to a number of these over the season.

The weather will start getting cold and wet, so prepare for muddy Sundays. There will be some cases where we have to cancel training, but this may not be until 10am on the Sunday. If we do know in advance we will put a notice on the website, so please check on Sunday mornings before you head out.

Gumshields and boots compulsory to play!

Registrations:
 please log in and pay your subs asap to ensure your son is insured to play - if you can’t find the registration email please contact junior.membership@ironsidesrugby.com so that Suzanne can re-send your log in and registration email.

Nuts: An important reminder to ask that no-one brings nuts or products containing nuts to training or fixtures; we have several children in U12 who are allergic to nuts and it is essential that we adhere to a no nut policy, thank you. 

Rubbish: please can all players and parents take any rubbish with them from training and matches - the coaches often have to clear away coffee cups/ empty water bottles/snack wrappers etc

Tour(s): There will be a number of options for tour/s for U12 this season, we will email details to poll parents and find the most preferred option/s in the next week or so.

Kit: On sale most Sundays at the clubhouse, cash or cheques only. There is a new shirt on sale for this season, with our new sponsor Rampton Baseley. It is absolutely fine to carry on wearing the old Douglas and Gordon tops, and for teams to play fixtures in a combination of the two styles. If anyone has any outgrown kit they want to give away, please let me know and I can try and find homes for them, I have a few people asking about this.

 

Volunteers: Are always needed, within the age group and at the club. All the Ironsides coaches, managers, first aiders, referees etc are volunteers and we always need more help! If you would like to get involved please let me know.

 

New joiners: please contact U12.manager@ironsidesrugby.com for details and to arrange to join us.
