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 (ANY PAYMENT MADE FOR TRIAL SESSIONS WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE MEMBERSHIP COST)

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