We offer AFL footy (modified), Indoor Cricket, Indoor Soccer, Indoor Netball, Indoor Volleyball, Dodgeball, Poison Ball and some modified party games. If you have an idea for a sport let us know and we will do our best to accomodate you.
Do the kids get to play all the different games?
Different sports require different set up in terms of equipment on the court. We offer a choice of 2 sports from the above list but we can combine a number of sports depending on the necessary set up. Parents will need to inform GIS of their sport choices prior to the party. Extra sports played will be at the discretion of the Party Coordinator and GIS management.

Our parties are suitable for boys and girls aged from 5 years and above. You can tailor your party to suit the age group (our party co-ordinators are very experienced and can provide advice and guidance depending on age group).
Our parties are held in our huge Indoor sports centre and parties have the exclusive use of their own court.
How long do our Parties go for?

How is the party structured?
When your guests arrive we have a variety of party snacks and nibbles set up for you. This is also a good time for everyone to grab a drink before the games begin. A little after the half way mark of the party, your party coordinator will serve the hot party food. The present opening can also be done at this time. Once everyone has been fed, it is time to hit the courts again for some more games. With plenty of time left til the end of your party, the party coordinator will serve the cake and help sing Happy Birthday..
Is a cake included in the party?
We do not provide a cake you will have to bring your own. We can store ice cream cakes in our freezer. Parents wanting to drop cakes off prior to the party need to coordinate and arrange a suitable time and will need to contact Geelong Indoor Sports prior to the party.

In the case of older siblings who want to share in the special day, our party coordinators can often involve them as umpires or get them to lend a hand while the younger children participate in their activities. Party coordinators are only responsible for the invited party guests - we are happy to accomodate younger siblings but they should be supervised at all times by parents or an adult party guest.
