Swans continue to spread their wings throughout Perth.

Thursday, September 10, 2020 - 12:05 PM

The Swan Districts Football Club’s Community Metro team continue to change lives for the better, helping promote inclusion, leadership and fitness around Perth.

Coming together with the Edmund Rice Centre WA (ERCWA), female players from the Swans WAFLW sides, coordinated by Hayley Cole from the Swans Community team, attended a camp to run a football clinic for a dozen girls aged between 12-17yrs, to help them better prepare for a planned game the next day.

ERCWA are committed to assisting people from refugee and migrant backgrounds, as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, offering settlements services and community education opportunities around the metro area.

Youth Program Coordinator, Mary Amosa, said it was wonderful to see the club giving back to the community whenever they can.

“Thank you Swan Districts Football Club for being part of the camp this year” she said. “You have most certainly given the girls something to look forward to in the years ahead.”

“With such short notice, you did an amazing job.”

“The session was very constructive, the young ladies were well engaged, and the giveaways were a highlight for the academy girls.”

"The academy girls really enjoyed the training session and provided nothing but positive feedback when asked about their experience.

“I look forward to working together to support the future of AFLW in WA". 

This is just one of the ways that Swan Districts staff, volunteers and players give back to the local community, as they continue to live the motto of being more than just a football club. To learn more about what the team are doing throughout WA, simply visit www.swandistricts.com.au.
