IF EVER you wanted a chance to rub shoulders with Sydney Swans players, today is your opportunity.

The Swans will be conducting a community barbecue this evening at the Jetty Foreshore.

Starting at 6pm, the Swans are inviting everyone to come along to meet some players, have a kick of the footy, win some amazing prizes, grab a few autographs and kids can try out the new Volkswagen Swansfit session.

It will top off a big day for the club.

This morning the Swans will be holding an open training session at C.ex Coffs International Stadium from 8.30-11am.

This afternoon they will return to the ground to show kids aged 5 to 12 a few tips during an AFL Super Clinic.

The entire playing list arrived in Coffs Harbour yesterday for a four-day pre-season training camp ahead of the club's foray into the new AFLX format on Saturday night.

Swans vice-captain Luke Parker said the entire playing list has been looking forward to their time in 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.”
