Sydney Swans players take part in pre-season training as they prepare for the start of the home and away season.

The Sydney Swans will be returning to Coffs Harbour for a pre-season training camp from February 13-16.

It will be the second time in as many weeks the Swans will be in Coffs following next week’s Community Camp, which will see the team spread around the state.

There will be plenty of opportunities for Swans fans from the Mid North Coast to see the team in action while they’re in town.

On super Wednesday (February 14), the Swans will have an open training session at C.ex Coffs International Stadium, visit kids at school, host an AFL clinic for the region’s up-and-coming juniors, hold a community barbecue as well as a business function with Coffs Harbour City  Council.

Swans vice-captain Luke Parker says the team’s looking forward to returning to Coffs Harbour.

“We’ve been travelling to Coffs Harbour for a number of years now and we always enjoy our time up there,” Parker said.

“It’s always a great opportunity to get away together as a team ahead of the season proper and see all of our supporters from the region.

“With a lot of community activities planned, we hope to see as many supporters get along to the events as possible.”
