Short history

The Swans have quickly become a power since their 1990 arrival in the GFL. The McDonalds Reserve base was home to just five teams in 2000, but has grown to host 35 combined footy and netball teams this season.

Great eras

After struggling to find their feet initially, the Swans have had a golden run over the last dozen years. After a debut grand final appearance in 1998, the Swans won their maiden title in 2001 with a 53-point win against North Shore in the decider. South Barwon has since become a powerhouse with three straight premierships from 2005-07 and Back to back in 2009-10. The club has already moved to second on the GFL premiership list.
