The Latrobe ValleySport and Active Recreation Participation Initiative provides seed grants of up to $75 000 with the key objective of increasing participation rates for targeted population groups that are currently under represented in sport and active recreation in the Latrobe Valley, which incorporates the Wellington Shire, Latrobe City and Baw Baw Shire.
This participation initiative encourages the development of strategic partnerships to co-design and deliver innovative community projects that increase and sustain inclusive participation in both organised and informal sport and active recreation in the Latrobe Valley.

Who are you proud to be? A sportsperson, coach, umpire, official, supporter or sponsor?
Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could share in the spirit and friendship of being part of a team or club? Many LGBTIQ people are missing out because they have experienced verbal abuse, bullying and homophobia.
Learn how to make your club, team or community group welcoming and inclusive at the Proud to Be Community Forum which features an education session by Proud2Play and guest speakers.
This is a FREE event and everyone is welcome, whether you’re part of a sporting club or not. Supper, tea & coffee provided.
We throw, catch, run, jump & get sweaty! Deal with it!
Latrobe valley women & girls will be the beneficiaries of a localized amplification of VicHealth’s amazing This Girl Can Victoria campaign. With support of the Victorian Government through the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone, GippSport has received funding to launch #GippyGirlsCan in partnership with Latrobe City Council and Latrobe Leisure Morwell on Saturday 21 April.
This Girl Can – Victoria
This Girl Can – Victoria celebrates women who are giving it a go and getting active no matter how well they do it, how they look or how sweaty they get.
Tall, short, curvy, petite; no matter your physique, This Girl Can – Victoria thinks if you’re out there getting active, you’re awesome
More than three in five Australian women aren’t active enough to enjoy the health benefits. This Girl Can – Victoria features everyday Victorian women of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and abilities to show that you can get out there and get active too.
We want all women & girls to get out there and share their story getting active
gippygirlscan.com is a calendar of activities that women & girls can get involved in for low or no cost.
The campaign is not about skill, level, shape or size, its about getting out there and having a go. Join a global movement of women supporting women to get active with This Girl Can – Victoria and Gippy Girls Can.
The Latrobe Valley amplification is the only regional amplification of this campaign across the state.
Whilst initially Latrobe City focused, from July 1 2018 the Gippy Girls Can campaign will be across the whole Gippsland region in partnership with VicHealth.
We are proud to partner with Latrobe City Council & Latrobe Leisure as part of their All Access weekend, where access to the Leisure centre and all activities will be provided to the community free of charge.
It has been fantastic to see a range of sporting clubs take the opportunity to host Indigenous Rounds across Gippsland over the last few years, including Football, Netball, Basketball and even Pony Clubs.
Clubs involved have all reported many benefits and good news stories from their events.
With momentum growing around Indigenous Rounds, GippSport and Deadly Gippsland have developed an Information Kit and a small Grants program to assist clubs in 2018.
The Information and Resource Kit has been put together as a reflection of 2016 & 2017 events across Gippsland and includes contact details of clubs who held events last year. The kit steps clubs through the process of considering an event, planning activities, engaging local community members, what clubs can do and where to find funding.
