Urban Rec is on a mission to change the way Central Coast plays sport

June 13, 2024 - one month ago

If you are reading this it means you care about sport within your community, and so do we. For a long time, there have only been 2 ways to play sport on the Coast, local clubs and indoor centres both of which (we believe) require a certain level of experience to join. 

We are a club (running in 8 other cities) with a mission to change the way Australians play sport. We offer short 10-week seasons, we have a strong passion for building respect and enjoyment within our leagues and very proud to say that we are huge on discipline and removing aggressive teams from our comps. 

We arrived at Kincumber Indoor Sports in March 2024 knowing we had a challenge ahead. Changing the culture in a centre thats been running for 20 years was never going to be easy, but change was necessary.

It seems over the last few years, indoor centres have continued to close their doors or become facilities for elite pathway use only. We fear that the opportunities for regular people to play recreational team sports are dwindling. 

As a reminder, Urban Rec is subleasing Kincumber Indoor Sports, meaning we do not have complete control of the centre or decisions, we only control the evening leagues Monday to Thursday. 

With investment from our community, we believe Kincumber can reshape into thriving, professional, and exciting sports and play destination for local adults and kids. To start this culture shift, all of our leagues will change from single-sex to open or mixed. 

  • Open means all genders can play within the league with no gender requirements or restrictions. 
  • Mixed means all genders can play within the league, with minimum gender requirements and restrictions. (usually minimum 2 females and minimum 2 males on the court). 

🍻We are partnering with local hotel Kincumber Hotel to organise end of season events and parties and encourage socialisation after the games and at the end of each 10-week season. 

πŸ“’We will be employing hosts, not referee’s, who coach and care. They are not faceless people with a whitsle, they are people within our community with a passion for sport who want to improve experience, not referee a game to the letter or the law. 

🀬We will be removing any teams that play aggressively, or cannot play in the spirit of their opposition and theur own enjoyment. We have zero tolerance for this. 

πŸ“We will be offering a diverse collection of new (and accessible) sports for everyone within the community to enjoy and try. This will include regular trial nights and free leagues for our members to get out and get active. Starting with Thursday night Pickleball. 

πŸ‘§Lastly, we plan to add junior competitions for school-age children across each weeknight, all year round under our brand Jamboree Sports. 

We understand that change is hard and often frustrating, but we know making these small tweaks over the next 12 months will result in a very exciting energy and experience for all our locals and the wider community. We also equally recognise that the way we provide and play sport is not for everyone, as such - there are plenty of other fantastic and traditional options for you to choose from on the coast. 

The below video further elaborates on who Urban Rec are and what we are trying to achieve within the sporting landscape. We invite you to join us on this journey.

Urban Rec is coming to the Central Coast

Urban Rec is coming to the Central Coast

February 12, 2024 - 5 months ago

Drum roll please......

Urban Rec has landed in the Central Coast. The story is one of sweetness and wonder. If you want to know how we came to Australia, click here. But this is about the Central Coast.

Launching in the Central Coast was always the next step, with a huge amount of success in Newcastle and Maitland, we realised that recreational sports MUST take a tour slightly south to the Central Coast.

Urban Rec are different because we pride ourselves on making sports accessible to the average Joe, and Joanne. If you haven't played sport since high school, or you're a retiring sports lover whose knees can’t take it anymore, then this is your comp.

We don't take ourselves too seriously, and we focus on what make sports fun - getting to know your opponents, making friends, being socially active as well as physically. That’s our jam. 

There's other stuff also - there's FUN points and prizes. There's event hosts (not referees), free social events, and there's good humans behind the brand. 

Onwards to the sport. This season we are launching with 5 leagues, and we are also excited to introduce both team and individual registration in all competitions.
