What is Gippsport Streetgames?
GippSport Streetgames provides affordable, 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!
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.
I have really enjoyed settling into life in East Gippsland and getting to know the sporting clubs, organisations and communities.
If you have any ideas of how Streetgames should look in your town, or if you're keen to work with us as a paid coach, please reach out to me!
Feel free to get in touch if you have a cool idea that might work with the program.
Become part of our crew! GippSport Streetgames also provide opportunities for young people to get involved at every level- everything from administration, media making, communications, art and design, to shadowing our staff, learning event planning, event management, coaching, and heaps more. The sky's the limit! If any of these volunteer opportunities sound like you, or you have an idea for our team, make sure to get in touch here or via Instagram or Facebook.
