Under 15s - Home Page
Welcome to the Under 15s Home Page.
Staines Under 15s welcome all new players and those who may just fancy coming down to see what it is all about. We are a friendly crowd and are welcoming to new starters, so pop along for a couple of free training sessions and see if you fancy playing. Or contact Nigel, the Manager or one of the coaches for more details (see below).
We will be playing in a brand new style of kit next season. Under 15s rugby is played on a full-sized pitch with 15 players per side.

U15s:

We have 6 qualified coaches, all CRB checked. Four of the coaches are also qualified referees. We U15s have a philosophy that those who come to train will play. Of course this policy has safety at the very core of our decision making. We will not play players who we consider are unprepared or who do not have the skills or physical fitness to be able to cope. But we do give newcomers game-time.

As part of their commitment to the team all the coaches will be attending coaching courses throughout the season in an effort to continue to provide current, quality coaching to the boys. We train on Wednesday evenings under floodlights from 6:30pm to 8pm and either train or play on Sundays, kick-off usually 11am, meet at 10:00am. Staines U15s have a full fixture list this season, playing 6 League games in Herts. & Middlesex League 5. The rest are friendlies which we play home and away locally.

The fact that we have so many coaches gives us the ability to concentrate in smaller groups to work on certain aspects that we consider need improvement. Any newcomers will be assessed by the Coaching Team and integrated into the squad immediately. We play fun games and exercises with the aim of becoming a more accomplished side when we play other teams.

For all our games, home and away this season the boys turn out in white shirts and Club ties. At home matches we will feed our own boys and the opposition: no burgers or sausages, but proper food that they require after a tough game. This food is cooked and served by our own parents. We do try to have social events too, some parents going out on nights out, the boys being taken paintballing and bowling and going on cycling days out.
