WET weather on the Coffs Coast has failed to put a dampener on the Sydney Swans' pre-season training camp, with the side ready to hit the ground running.

The reigning AFL Premier will hold its first open session this morning at BCU International Stadium after arriving in town last night.

It will be a busy week of training, public appearances and pre-season preparations for the Swans.

Coach John Longmire proclaimed the team was ready for a big week ahead.

"The team is looking forward to the next few days in Coffs Harbour," Longmire said.

"It'll be a good intensive week of training as well as a chance to get out into the Coffs Coast community.

"It is the first time the full squad has come to Coffs Harbour in a number of years so it will be a great few days for the club.

"This trip is a great way to break up pre-season training and it is a nice change of scenery for the players."

Fans will have two chances to see their heroes in action with open training sessions to be held this morning and again on Friday from 9am.

Sydney will also give local youngsters a chance to have a kick with Swans players with a coaching clinic to be held on Thursday from 4pm.

"It is not often we get a crowd to training so it will be a great opportunity for the players," Longmire said.

"Hopefully local fans get as much out of this week as what I'm sure the players will."
