Under 16’s Age Group 2018-19 Season
Our page is being updated for the new season.
We are now into our pre-season with over 30 boys attending each week. Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:00. Everyone is welcome to come and try it out.
The Reeds U16’s age group has 40+ registered players; runs 2 full teams and a full programme of league and friendly fixtures. We train Wednesday nights, 6.30pm to 8pm at the Reeds Weybridge Club Whitely Village. On Sundays we mainly play matches, interspersed with some additional training sessions. Home matches and Sunday training typically start at 11.45am.
We believe that the Reeds U16’s age group is able to offer players, at all standards a great opportunity to learn and develop their rugby; to play competitive rugby at a level that is suitable for their ability; and to continue to be challenged as their experience and ability develops. This attitude and coaching support has seen the age group grow with 7 new players joining this season alone. Selection for the teams is done on a weekly basis taking into account:
Coaching & Player Development
The Reeds U16’s age group is supported by 7 qualified coaches. 2 of the coaches still play competitive rugby at senior level. Many are either are Level 1 or 2 qualified. All coaches are involved in a continuous programme of training and development supported by the Reeds club and the RFU. We also leverage specialist coaching resources within the club, when required.
We focus on developing player’s core skills, to enable them to play effectively at several positions. Player movement between A and B teams is actively managed throughout the season to challenge players, help develop player core and positional skills and to ensure that we retain a strong squad ethos.

Over the last 2 seasons we have made a big effort to play some new teams, both in Surrey and in neighbouring counties. We would be very pleased to host any new teams or to travel to your ground. We know that touring is important for most clubs, and as such our coaches, parents and players all make a big effort to create a memorable day when hosting touring teams.

Reeds Weybridge is blessed with some fantastic playing facilities. Flat, well maintained, quick draining pitches ensure that we can train and play throughout the season, whatever the weather conditions.
Match quality lights were installed at Reeds Weybridge during the 2013-14 season.
Social Activities & Tour
We always aim to organise a number of social events each year for players and the parents, outside of rugby training and matches.
