Southern Peninsula Swans Football Team












The Lions Club of Rye is a major partner with local organisation MI Fellowship in a very worthwhile project which brings together young people from a range of backgrounds and lifestyles to participate in the team sport of Australian Rules Football. This group plays football in a competition controlled by RecLink Victoria and is made up of teams from similar walks of life as our local group.

The Lions Club of Rye provides at no cost a BBQ for the players and supporters following each game or training session which is always very much appreciated. This fantastic community project builds lasting friendships and relationships with the group and the wider community.

The Reclink season commences with the first game being on the April each year.  The Lions Club of Rye will again sponsor free sausage sizzles at all Swans home games and training days so if you are around call in and meet the team and other supporters - Olympic Park, Rosebud, entry off Besgrove St, Rosbud.
