About us

What is Gippsport Streetgames?

GippSport Streetgames provides free, accessible sport and recreation activities to teens and young adults across Gippsland. Delivered by Gippsport, the 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.

GippSport Streetgames aims to provide a massive range of social and modified sports at the right time, right place, and in the right style for many of these young adults across Gippsland, so they can get active and connected.

Our Goals

GippSport 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 across Gippsland.

We can't wait to see you at one of our events!

Covidsafe plan

Our team continually reviews the Victorian Government guidelines, ensuring we make all the necessary adjustments to meet and comply with the required DHS guidelines and CovidSAFE requirements.

Program Officer | GippSport Streetgames
Hi Everyone, I’m Sascha. I am honored to be working with the Streetgames Crew. After relocating to Gippsland in April 2020, I have had the pleasure of experiencing the wonderfully diverse and welcoming community that is Gippsland. During this time, I have developed a genuine passion for Streetgames and what Streetgames represent for the community. I have over four years of experience working within diverse communities. I pride myself on achieving community and team goals and treating all people with dignity, equity, and respect. Please come and say “Hi” at our next event.
