Sydney Swans’ Coffs Harbour Community Camp locked in

The Sydney Swans will visit NSW coastal town, Coffs Harbour, for a pre-season training and Community Camp next week.

The Swans’ playing group and coaching staff are looking forward to interacting with the local community at events open to the public including a kids’ Super Clinic at C.ex Coffs International Stadium on Monday, 29 January and several school holiday programs.

Fans can also watch the Swans compete in a match simulation on the morning of Wednesday, 31 January – the perfect way to wrap up the school holidays.

The Swans’ AFL team last visited Coffs Harbour in 2019, and more recently the popular holiday destination hosted its AFLW squad for a pre-season camp in June 2023.

Head of AFL NSW/ACT, Tiffany Robertson, said the Sydney Swans would be warmly welcomed in Coffs Harbour: “The AFL Coffs Harbour community is immensely looking forward to the Swans’ visit.

“There’s nothing quite like seeing elite athletes in the flesh and this is a special opportunity for the community to interact with some of the country’s best sportspeople.

“I encourage anyone in Coffs and surrounding communities to get out and see the Swans in your town and soak in some footy in January.”

This is the 22nd year of the AFL Community Camp program, where AFL stars inspire fans and newcomers to the sport in school, club and hospital visits, NAB AFL Auskick Super Clinics and community events.

The GIANTS’ Community Camp will take place in Canberra and southern NSW in late February.
