Game Hubs can take many different forms and should evolve to best fit with young people in their local community context.

Here are our key principles to guide that evolutionary process…

  • play & games-based (promoting freedom, creativity, collaboration, competition)
  • voices and choices of young people shape the “what” and “how” of games (games may or may not resemble established sports)
  • adults = facilitators/activators/enablers/co-designers
  • flexible (in terms of time commitment and ways to participate)
  • no/low cost
  • place-based (created “with” and “by” people in the local community)
