Greater Western Sydney Giants keep strong focus on our west

THE Greater Western Sydney Giants remain committed to western Sydney.

Greater Western Sydney Giants social media co-ordinator Matthew Hagias said they retain a strong profile in the community.

"We run all our community programs in areas throughout greater western Sydney, with a focus on the Blacktown region, where we have hundreds of members," Hagias said.

This includes regular junior club nights, school visits, hospital appearances and fan days.

The club's PM Capital Giants Academy is based at Blacktown International Sportspark.

The academy aims to identify and develop junior elite athletes throughout NSW and the ACT.

The Giants held an intra-club match at Blacktown in February and play Adelaide Crows in trial game at Blacktown this Friday, March 7.

The Giants will hold training sessions at Blacktown and their reserves team will play matches at the venue this season.

Matthew Hagias said every Giants player is linked to a junior AFL Club in western Sydney as part of its ambassador program.

The will conduct visits to the clubs and also instruct youngsters at coaching clinics.
