Battersea Ironsides U17's are a friendly and successful team playing the Surrey League Div 1.

Players born between 1 August 1999 and 31 July 2000 are eligible for this age group. We train or play our matches on Sunday mornings, at Garrett Green when we are at home, and also have light training on Wednesday evenings at the club on Burntwood Lane.

We have a squad of 25-30 players, many of whom have been with the club since beginning mini-rugby at the age of 5 or 6, but also including a lot of players who have joined in the past 2 or 3 seasons.

We warmly welcome all new players regardless of experience, and are committed to bringing all players to a level where they can participate and enjoy the game. We fully support the core rugby values of Teamwork, Respect, Discipline and Sportsmanship, but try to make our sessions and matches as fun as possible

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 U13’s Team Page

As from Sunday 18th September we will be training at the ATA ground for the rest of the season which is on Openview with a  9.50am for a 10am start, through to 12.00pm.  Access to the grounds is via the gates in Openview.
 
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 St George's Park (Kimber Road - North Side of park) from 10am to 12pm every Sunday.

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, if not we will put up a notice on the blackboard that is next to the changing rooms at the clubhouse.

Kit starts to get important now as the children won't enjoy the training if they are cold and wet. Good waterproofs, gloves and a hat will help. They won't be allowed to play unless they have mouth-guards. Some children wear head-guards and body padding however these are not required.

Boots are essential this year and any children without studs or blades will not be able to take part. If you are unsure on the type of boot to be used please ask one of the coaches.

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.
