Pre-season update

First official training on Wednesday was a good hit out with 10 Årsta Swans braving the 4 degree afternoon. Some good short and some good long drills helped our new lads get a feeling for Australian Football, while also showing that the old heads were lacking fitness after a long Swedish winter of too much nubbe and Swedish meatballs.

Upcoming training

Sunday 17th: Meet at 1pm at Liljeholmen T-Bana, between the T-Bana (metro) and the Tvärbana (tram).

Tuesday 19th: Our regular training on Wednesday will be moved to Tuesday next week, to accommodate the Special General Meeting of the SAFF, which is being held on Wednesday next week. See our usual ground for training and matches here.

Training has begun

Finally, the sun is shining and football is back on the agenda.

It’s hard to be concentrating on a pre-season while there’s 30cm of snow outside, but our first real spring day shone last Sunday and the Årsa Swans were there to take advantage of it.

We took a jog out to Vinterviken and then spent an hour with drills. No pics were taken, however, here’s a snap we found that represented the brilliant weather nicely.

From now on, training will be every Wednesday evening at 6pm at Årstafältet. See our Play Footy in Stockholm page for a map and directions on how to get there. As usual, contact the Årsta Swans if you’ve got any questions about the club or how you can get involved.
