What is Latrobe Streetgames?
Latrobe Streetgames provides free, accessible sport and recreation activities to teens and young adults across Latrobe City. Delivered by Gippsport, and funded by 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. Read Our Code of Conduct
Latrobe Streetgames is about getting out, having fun with your mates, and enjoying the vibe (plus all the other perks, like free food and merch).
We are led by and for young people in the Latrobe Valley with a crew of over 30 passionate volunteers (and more every day).
We can’t wait to see you at one of our events!

I help get our events happening and I’m super pumped to lead the action sports program, where we will roll-out our SPL (Skatepark Leagues) and skate, scoot and BMX clinics. I love filming videos at the local skateparks, and travelling to all the skateparks Australia has to offer. Super keen to see everyone jumping in the comps and I’m always there to give advice to all riders about their runs and tricks. If you see me, come say G’Day. 😵
