Sydney Swans are on their way back to North Coast

The Sydney Swans are coming to Coffs Harbour in December and there will be plenty of chances for the footy loving public of the North Coast to get up close and personal with the team.

The Swans will be in Coffs Harbour from Monday 9 to Wednesday 11 December and will hold a Kids Clinic, coach education workshop, and two open training sessions across this time. The team will also be involved in a bush fire appeal and the opening of a new sports faculty.

A highlight of the visit is sure to be the Kids Clinic, which will see the players run a skills session, sign autographs and encourage youngsters to register for footy. The Kids Clinic will be held on Monday 9 December from 4:30pm to 6:00pm at Fitzroy Oval and is open to all boys and girls aged 5 to 15.
