General notes

Registration is required at home training every week for allocation of coaching groups. Please ensure you are ready with boots on the pitch for 10am sharp for squad allocations. We ask that you confirm availability by Wednesday 6pm so further training plans can be finalised.

You are reminded that a condition of membership is that a parent is present with their child throughout the session. 

The age group is run by volunteers so please assist them in any way possible to help the age group run smoothly and to ensure that your child has the best rugby experience possible. If you would like to to volunteer to help in any way please speak to the U9 Manager.

And so our U7s season is over - cut short by this global pandemic, and all of us in a state of lockdown.
All the U7s Coaching and Management team send you and your families our very best wishes, and hope you are all well.

We have had our first Minis Tour cancelled, and Mini's FunDay 2020 also.
Rest assured there are many plans afoot to put on a cracking "Welcome Back" party for Season 2020/21!

Regarding refunds for tour, Butlins should now have reimbursed you.
For those who were due to attend the Quins/Sale game on Mother's Day - you should have received my email requesting details as to where to send reimbursed funds. Do get in touch if you haven't.

Please keep an eye out for any comms from U7s team and the whole Club (keep checking your junk/spam folders!!)

It's been a fabulous season, and lots planned as we progress up to U8s!
Thanks to everyone, especially to our fabulous team of Coaches!

Stay safe,

Welcome to the Battersea Ironsides U7s.

The 2019-20 season will start on Sunday 8th September at 10am at the Clubhouse located on Openview SW17, just off Burntwood Lane. 

The U6 age group is for girls and boys in School Year 1.

Training runs from 10am to 11.45am every Sunday (sometimes finishing earlier depending on the weather!)

Each week children have an enormous amount of fun playing a variety of games that teach them about moving around the field and the basics of ball handing. Once fully warmed up we usually then spend the second half of the session playing games of tag rugby in small groups. 

Our main aim at this stage is to ensure the children enjoy themselves but thanks to our incredible coaching team they also learn the basics of rugby very quickly - it doesn't take long for them to work out which try line they are supposed to be aiming to cross!


 

We welcome new joiners throughout the season and currently have no waiting list.

If you want your child to give Ironsides a try, then just come down to the Clubhouse on Sundays just before 10am to register your child with the U6 manager (you will be required to fill out two forms for your child)  

​Parents should be aware that for the coming season we will be operating a STRICT TWO WEEK TRIAL PROCESS.   WE ALLOW YOUR CHILD TO TAKE TWO TRIALS AT £5, AFTER WHICH IF YOU WISH TO KEEP COMING, YOU WILL NEED TO SIGN UP AS FULL MEMBERS. THE COST OF MEMBERSHIP FOR THE COMING SEASON IS £150 FOR THE FIRST CHILD, £85 FOR A SIBLING

Do get in contact with the Manager or Coaches if you have any questions - see the contacts section for details.
