What is Latrobe Streetgames?
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 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!
Feel free to get in touch if you have a cool idea that might work with the program.
Become part of our crew! Latrobe 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.
