Swans kick off community camp

The Sydney Swans have spread right across New South Wales for the AFL Australia Post Community Camps.

Players have visited regional and metropolitan cities across the state to speak with students at local schools, hospitals and share in community events.

Following training on Monday morning players set off on their adventures to Terrigal, Newcastle, Port Macquarie, Wollongong, Bowral, Coffs Harbour, Armidale, Tamworth and Wagga Wagga.

There were also a number of players that stayed within the Sydney metropolitan region to take place in important community initiatives.

Veteran midfielder Kieren Jack said the players understood the importance of what the community camp meant to the local cities.

“It is a great initative but the AFL and the Swans with a great chance for us to get into some towns to speak the word of AFL football and run some clinics for the locals," Jack said from Kiama just outside of Wollongong.

"Hopefully we can get into the schools and convince a few more kids to play AFL football."

"The main thing is that everyone is having fun and most of the boys and girls look to be having fun today."
