La Trobe Sport to reopen on Wednesday June 24

La Trobe Sport is pleased to announce it will be reopening its sport and recreation facilities on Wednesday June 24.

With the easing of government restrictions, the University has provided approval for the following facilities to reopen with reduced opening hours:

  • La Trobe Sports Stadium
  • La Trobe Sports Centre (including the gym, pool and specialty studios)

In conjunction with the University, La Trobe Sport has been closely monitoring the situation and working towards a phased return of activities through a careful COVIDSafe process which complies with government health and safety requirements.

La Trobe Sport staff have worked extremely hard to ensure that we will be providing the safest environment possible for our community upon the reopening of our facilities. We are asking all of our members and customers to consult our Return to Sport and Recreation Guidelines and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below to ensure they are aware of the temporary new processes we have put in place before attending our facilities.

La Trobe Sport would like to thank all of our valued members and customers for your ongoing patience throughout this period, and we appreciate your understanding and compliance towards our new processes while restrictions remain in place.

Should you have any other questions that are not covered in our FAQ section, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via email (sport@latrobe.edu.au) or over the phone (9479 2973).
