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.
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!
Feel free to get in touch if you have a cool idea that might work with the program.
I love working with young people and their communities, and I am excited to combine my passions for mental and physical health to provide some awesome opportunities for our youth.
If you're keen to be involved in the design and development of streetgames, to be a coach at one of our locations, or you simply just want to come along for some fun, feel free to get in touch.
I can't wait to hear from you
