Join us for our Trivia Night on Saturday 3rd June 2017

posted 10 May 2017, 22:53 by Rebecca Higgs

DESCRIPTION

From history to pop culture, music to sport, come along and test your general knowledge at the Mosman Swans Triva night!

What's Happening?

Park yourself in front of Millionaire Hot Seat, pull up a pew at Chaser and settle in Family Fued so you are ready to dominate at Trivia. Come solo or come as a team and our Trivia Master (real trivia master not a funny club member) will manage the night.

What to Wear

Not everyone likes a dress up, so we've made our theme CHEER CHEER, so you can come in your team colours, or come in something fabulous, it's up to you.

Sports Themed Food

Our catering for the evening is sports themed, (we are angling for chicken wings guys) and there will be plenty of proper food and snacks, with your favourites all present! 

Drink on Arrival

We have included a drink on arrival and to keep costs down and cater for all tastes, drinks are available at the bar for you to purchase. I'm down for gin and tonic, but we will ensure a great range of beers, wines and for our champagne drinkers they have Mumm and Moet & Chandon along with a range of Aust Sparklers. ( I put that detail because I know you).

Should I form a Team?

Yes! Get your mates together and form a team of 4 - 8 and feel free to invite non footy mates. If you're a solo, or a couple, the Trivia Master will sort you into teams on the night. It all works.

Raffle for Bear Cottage

We will have a monster raffle on the night with some fantastic prizes, as well as a prize for the winning trivia team. When we get together it's also a great opportunity to support Bear Cottage and proceeds from the raffle will go to support the incredible work they do there.

Donations

We don't want you to feel left out. If you have an item or experience we could add to the raffle please let us know, it' a brilliant cause. Contact Anna Musson at anna@goodmanners.com.au or call 0412 007 173.

Timing

Trivia starts at 7.30 sharp and food service begins at 6.30pm so come early and have something to eat before we start.

2017 Season Launch 
10th February 2017

Dear Members & JV Partners,
 
Just a quick reminder that we have the Season Launch / How to Play Day this Sunday February 12th from 10am until 1pm at the Village Green in Mosman (adjacent to the Council Building). The latest weather forecast is for a fairly pleasant 30 degrees, rather than the heat-wave predicted earlier, so we are in for a perfect day. Please bring along any friends (boys and girls!) who might be interested in playing AFL.
 
As a warm-up for the day, I also highly recommend that you watch the Woman AFL on Channel 72 on Saturday night with your daughters to see what is possible. AFL is a sensational game for girls and the Mosman Swans has been at the forefront of developing the code in NSW.
 
Lastly, if you haven’t registered already, you can do so here:

See you Sunday!
 
Glenn

Erin McKinnon started her footy journey by creating her own team with mum’s help

NEIL CORDY, The Daily Telegraph
February 3, 2017 6:30pm

WHEN it comes to initiative, it’s hard to look past Greater Western Sydney ruck Erin McKinnon.

When she wanted to play Australian rules five years ago, there wasn’t a team near her to be found in Sydney.

So, with a big helping hand from her mother, Michelle, they got to work and created their own.

WHO’S WHO: GWS PLAYER PROFILES

AFLW GUIDE: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

There was plenty of work to do on the day Erin turned up to register for the Mosman Swans — there was just her and one other girl.

Emails to her friends, school mates and sporting friends created enough interest to field an under-14 team in a four-team league, which had doubled in size from the previous year.

Even then, the matches against Maroubra Saints, Baulkham Hills Hawks and the Drummoyne Power were casual affairs.

“We’d play just with the numbers we had and often the opposition would give us players to make it even,” Erin said.

“No one knew how to play footy, so my mum did a coaching course.

“She could have asked me to try another sport like netball or basketball, but she had a go like the rest of us.”

In the early days, before ­Michelle completed her level 1 coaching course, she knew as much about the game as her players — virtually nothing.

“I didn’t know what a shepherd was, what a hard ball get was or something called the fat side,” Michelle said.

“The club was keen for the women to take responsibility for it and to run it.

“We’d assumed the dads would do the coaching, but we thought if the girls can step out of their comfort zones and try something new, then the mothers can too.

“We learned very quickly and had so much fun.

“I could see the girls were really passionate and it worked out well that I was learning with them because I could ­explain things in simple terms because that was all I knew, that translated well.”

Five years on from building the team, Michelle will see the fruits of her labour when Erin runs out for GWS against Adelaide today.

MOSMAN SWANS NEWSLETTER
2017 Season Launch 
2nd February 2017

Welcome to 2017 Season

Dear Members & JV Partners,
 
Welcome to Season 2017!
 
To kick of the AFL New Year, we have organised a Season Launch / How to Play Day on Sunday February 12th from 10am until 1pm at the Village Green in Mosman (adjacent to the Council Building). There will be plenty of fun and information for parents, returning players and new players.
 
We are delighted to announce that the Sydney Swan young-guns, Dan Robinson and Callum Mills, are both attending. Dan and Callum both started their careers right here at the Mosman Swans and will be giving advice to young players and discussing their progression from junior footy to the big league. Sydney Swans Assistant Coach and former Port Adelaide superstar, Josh Francou, is also attending along with some other special guests.
 
Players – please wear your footy gear (no footy boots please). The visiting players and coaches will have plenty of time to sign your jumpers and join in the games that we have planned. Don’t miss this opportunity to play footy and interact with some stars of the game in a local setting.
 
Bring along your friends, particularly those who are considering playing AFL. It’s never too late to start! There will be plenty of Mosman Swans Committee members, Willoughby-Mosman Swans officials and team coaches on hand to answer any questions you might have on the day.
 
For now, I can tell you that the season proper starts on the first weekend in April. We are unlikely to have the exact draw until mid-March, but your Age Group Co-Ordinators will be in touch shortly to advise of training dates and times.
 
Please let me know if you have any other questions. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you on the 12th!
 
Go Swans,
 
Glenn Morgan
Mosman Swans President

Team-wear Apparel Partner – ISC
 

ISC join us this year as our Teamwear and off field apparel partner. ISC supply 5 AFL clubs including the Sydney Swans. We are delighted with the new Mosman Swans uniform which is now available to members.

Mosman Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre

The practice is well known to many of our members and has been established for over 40 years.

 

In addition to match day coverage, as part of the arrangement players will have available an “Injury Clinic” on Monday evenings in the Practice to have acute injuries assessed from the weekend prior. This will enable the triage of injuries, and have more urgent matters attended to quickly, thus resulting in less time lost from the field. These will be short consultations and still must be booked in advance.
