Latrobe Streetgames provides free, accessible sport and recreation activities to teens and young adults across Latrobe City.
Funded by the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone and delivered in partnership with the Latrobe Health Assembly, GippSport’s Latrobe Streetgames program responds to research which shows a big drop-off in sports participation at around the age of 14 which endures into adulthood for many people. This drop is even larger for women, gender diverse individuals, and those experiencing barriers such as injury, illness, disability, or financial strains.
Latrobe Streetgames aims to provide a massive range of free social and modified sports at the right time, right place, and in the right style for many of these young adults across Latrobe City, so they can get active and connected.
Latrobe Streetgames is for players of all skill levels.
Our games are generally pretty short and sweet (2-15 minutes each depending on game type), we usually have one main game happening, but we also have heaps of smaller sidegames such as spikeball and badminton if you’re not much of a people-person, or you’re still getting comfortable with the group. While some of our players love competition, we totally get that many don’t, so how you play is totally up to you. We try to balance some competitive main games and some cooperative or “just for fun” ones. Come and chat to our staff if you have any concerns or questions, or want to do something a bit different and we’ll always do our best to accommodate.
