“Let Kids be Kids” – New Video released by Play by The Rules – Please watch it

play by the rules

Have you seen the latest “Let Kids be Kids” video,

just released by 

Play by the Rules – making sport inclusive, safe and fair….



These videos have very powerful messages in them from the kids themselves, reminding Adults…. that “They just want to have FUN”, and how poor sideline behaviour affects them.

Poor sideline behaviour can actually result in a child giving up sport

These are the words that kids WANT to hear “Good Job, Keep trying, Your’e doing great, Have fun, Try as hard as you can, you will get there “:….

This statement says it all ” It”s about the kids and it is about letting “Kids be Kids””

All Skate Victoria Disciplines… please share this Link onto your own Club pages to help spread the kids and athletes messages

Do you know the HISTORY behind the Skate Victoria “The Shed”?. Click here to find out

A little history ….. on Skate Victoria’s ‘The Shed’ in Dandenong
Skate Victoria is the “ONLY State Body for Roller Sports in AUSTRALIA”, that has their own training venue. ‘The Shed’ is located within the Dandenong Show Grounds complex.
Roller Hockey, first saw the benefits of utilizing the shed over 20 years ago, as a training facility & arranged to put the concrete rink floor down in the shed.
In the years to follow, Peter Boehm from Dandenong Roller Hockey Club, spent countless hours on improvements to the Shed.
In 2011, Victorino Rodrigues, former Skate Victoria President, saw a need to again lease the venue and as a result of his vision….. 
 The Shed is now used by many roller sports groups (disciplines) daily, all year round !!! & provides a facility for training, workshops, bootcamps, Junior development & annual roller hockey tournaments such as the 2017 Australia Day Roller Hockey Cup. Roller Hockey Australia
