GippSport Streetgames responds to research that shows a drop-off in sports participation during adolescence, which is likely to continue into adulthood without intervention. This drop off is larger for women, gender-diverse individuals, and those experiencing barriers such as injury, illness, disability, or financial strains.
GippSport Streetgames focus on providing a range of social sport and recreational opportunities 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 stay connected.
Since March 2020, GippSport Streetgames has incorporated virtual components into the programming to help coaches reach a wider audience. With a passion for embracing change, GippSport Streetgames aims to bridge the gap for marginalised communities by providing opportunities for access to safe social sport and recreational activities.
GippSport Streetgames has a range of fee-for-service options available, such as School Holiday Programs, Social Sports Leagues, Skate Club, Sporting Schools, and many more. GippSport Streetgames is committed to providing affordable programs that encourage physical activity and social engagement in the young people in Gippsland.
