Welcome to Ironsides U11's. We are a non-selective community club, with one of the largest mini sections in the country. Whether you've been playing for a couple of years or are looking to start rugby, Ironsides is the ideal choice. For the season commencing September 2019 the U11s is for all those children born between 1st September 2008 and 31st August 2009.

We train every Sunday with kick off at 10:00 prompt until12:00. Registration takes place at the beginning of the season and for newcomers throughout the season. Rugby boots and a mouth guard are mandatory. Please ensure you've arrived and are ready to warm up by 09:45. We have a busy season of Festivals ahead for all levels. Please also note that Ironsides U11s is NOT a drop off training session, you would have to ensure that an adult is with your child at all times and that the child knows who that adult is.

U11s Information

Sunday 23rd Feb 2020
We have a change of plan for home training this Sunday (23rd Feb). We will now be playing on the ATA pitches next to Batrix Potter school, the address is Openview, Earlsfield SW18 3PD. And we will be playing from 11am - 12:15pm.


The reason for the move is because Wandsworth Common is still unplayable.

- All children will need to wear mouth guards and rugby boots for every training session & festival. 
- No dogs are allowed on our training pitch at Wandsworth Common
- Please note that Ironsides Rugby is NOT a drop off training session, all children must have an adult with them for the duration of the session and the children must be aware of who that adult is.

Welcome to the Battersea Ironsides U6s.

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.
