Swan Districts Football Club was established in 1934 and has won eight WAFL Premierships, including a pair of hat-tricks in 1961, 1962 & 1963 and then again in 1982, 1983 & 1984. Two more flags were won in 1990 and 2010, along with the distinction of having nine individual Sandover Medallists. Legendary rover Bill Walker tops the list having won the medal on four occasions, a feat not matched by any other player in the history of the competition. In 2017, the club’s female footballers were the first ever to win the Grand Final in all three grades.

Swan Districts is also more than just a football club. It has an important role to create programs with community partners to improve social outcomes and sense of well-being in the community it belongs. VSwans, the community development arm of the business, has long lasting partnerships and programs in the Pilbara that has achieved significant increases in school attendances and behaviour by disadvantaged youth. The club is now establishing a similar community outreach program in its metropolitan zone.

The club also leads the way in developing it’s own talent and promoting from within. During the 2017 WAFL season, the senior list comprised close to 80% of home grown players.

Whether a new member or an old faithful, once you attend a game and hear for the first time the passion from the club’s  supporters, it becomes very addictive. The fans at Swans are a crucial part of the club’s success. In 2018, the club will further enhance the match day experience by creating a fun active Swans Play Zone for kids and even more give-aways at home games.

Members are welcome to come down to Steel Blue Oval and see the boys and girls teams train. Members are also welcome on Thursday nights during the season to enjoy a drink and a light meal upstairs in the members bar and be in the running to win cash jackpots in Chase the Ace. There will also be a free weekly Members cash draw starting at $1,000 along with other raffles through the evening. Members will also have the opportunity to meet the players after training upstairs and hear from the coach his team selection for the following game.

I look forward to you joining us in 2018.

Jeff Dennis
