SWAN Dis­tricts will be hold­ing ac­tiv­i­ties for kids and peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties at its an­nual Count Me In Day at Steel Blue Oval on July 14.

In 2007, the club started host­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, their fam­i­lies and car­ers at all home games as part of the Footy Day Out ini­tia­tive.

This ini­tia­tive is now re­ferred to as the Swans Count Me In ini­tia­tive, which pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties to take part in com­mu­nity life and have a break from their daily rou­tine.

The club also formed a dis­abil­ity in­clu­sion and ad­vo­cacy sub- com­mit­tee this year.

Matches will start with the colts at 8.20am, fol- lowed by the re­serves at 10.50am, Cool­binia and High Wy­combe in­te­grated game at 1.30pm and end­ing with the Swan Dis­tricts and East Perth league game at 2.25pm.

There will be a VIP area for peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, which will in­clude a free soft drink and sausage siz­zle, along with dancers.
