No barriers to fun day
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.
