Swan Valley Soccer Club is always looking to extend the number and types of teams that it will be entering for the 2017 season. One of the big changes for the upcoming season is that the Valley is looking to introduction a female team to the Valley family.
Over the off season, many discussions among the committee, as well as with interested players and sponsors have occurred on the topic. With all this progressing well the Swan Valley Soccer Club wishes to open this discussion more publicly and invite any female players down to the club to start preseason training with the rest of the club. This invitation is open to players of any ability and skill level, whether you have played for years, or are looking to try the sport for the first time.
Hopefully we see a good turn out, and we can continue to grow the Valley family.
Please note updated opening times for the bar over the new few days.. WE ARE NOW OPEN NEW YEARS EVE AND NEW YEARS DAY!!

It was several weeks ago now that our beloved member and legendary Cricketer Shaye Spackman collapsed during a regular and unremarkable training session. New young club member James Green was one of the first on the scene. With his first aid and St John Ambulance volunteering background James took on the situation diligently and effectively to manage the people around him but most importantly to analyse Shaye’s predicament and apply life saving first aid. James delivered chest compressions for up to 20 minutes until Ambulances arrived. There is little doubt at all that if James didn’t take the actions that he did we would be left with an absolutely devastated Spackman family and Sporting Club.
These events have directly lead to the Sporting Club’s increased recognition of the great importance of personal first aid training and general preparedness for emergency situations such as the one involving Shaye. We are now taking steps to arrange first aid training for our staff and members but also have ordered a Defibrillator as precautionary equipment – equipment that we hope we will never need to use!
Yesterday James was deservedly presented with the Pride of Australia Medal which celebrates and recognises everyday Australian’s doing outstanding things. Look out for this coming Sunday’s edition of the Sunday Times for a full write up on the event that has brought to James and Shaye a life long bond.
On behalf of the Swan Valley Sporting Club and its members we thank and congratulate you James!
Swan Valley Sporting Club now has Foxtel!

In an historic day for the Swan Valley Football Club both the League and Reserves sides played off in Grand Finals at Kingsway Reserve yesterday. With both side being dominant in their respective grades throughout the season and achieving minor premierships, the sides were positioned well to taste the ultimate success. In two very hard fought games however, only the C3 Reserves side walked away as Premiers to go back to back. Inaccurate kicking almost cost valley the game but with gritty determination Valley kicked ahead in the last quarter to win by 6 points over Mosman Park.
C3 played a determined Nollamara side and struggled to reach their usual high standard of play for the whole game. Despite defeating Nollamara comfortably in the two regular season games, Nollamara turned the tables when it counted to win by 9 points. Unlucky to our lads but congratulations on a brilliant season which sees the club advance to C2 grade next season!
Congrats to the SVFC Committee, Coaches Brian Lloyd and Rick Esteban and the training staff on another successful season!
