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.
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 40 and 50 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 have teams playing in two Surrey Leagues and involved in inter club friendlies, in which all of our boys will be involved throughout the season. This brings focus to the training and advances the rugby skills of all players, irrespective of rugby experience. We are a competitive but friendly age group who are always welcoming to new players, never mind of experience. Rugby for all!

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.
