It is not an arduous job and we will ensure there is plenty of support to serve in the canteen on match days. Contact Mark Curran on 0415 903 047 for more information

AGM Invite 2011




For players who played last year we need your trophy back as soon as possible so that it can be ready for Presentation Day.

Trophies can be returned on game days or at training to Coaches, managers or to the canteen



Presentation Day will be held on 11th of September at Max McMahon more details will be available soon.

The Committee would like some help with some games and activities.

I think everyone would agree that last year was a lot of fun and we hope to have a similar day this year.


Many people might not know that our club’s major fundraiser is the Friday night raffle that we run at The Rutherford Hotel.(One of our major sponsors).

All through the season we don’t ask that you put your hand in your pocket to raise money, but what we would like is a little of your time to help run these raffles with the help of committee members.

The tickets go on sale from 6.00pm in the Cocktail Lounge and the raffle is drawn at 7.30pm.

As well as many meat trays up for grabs in the raffle straight after there is the MONEY TREE DRAW that Jackpots every week by $100.

Then after that there is ” POT THE LOT” where for $1.00 if you can sink all balls on the pool table you can win the prize money which starts at $200 and Jackpots every week.

Or come along enjoy a cold beer or great meal in the bistro which is open  7 nights a week. On Friday nights they have a SPECIAL  $10 rump steak  meal.

As we have mentioned, the hotel is one of our major sponsors and it would be great to support them as they support us.


Attached is information in applying for the Sydney Swans Academy. If you apply could you also let the club know you have applied thank you
