Kids sports activities are great for their physical and mental development, as well as keeping them fit. However, they can get expensive, especially if you have more than one child doing sports. Which is why the NSW Government is helping kids get active with the new Active Kids program, giving you one voucher valued up to $100 for each school aged child, to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and active fitness and recreation activities.

The voucher can be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and membership costs for sport, fitness and active recreation activities during the calendar year it was issued.

Vouchers can be used for registration or membership fees with approved Active Kids providers, but not used for individual items such as jerseys or boots.

Who’s Eligible?

The child must be:

  • aged between 4.5 & 18 years old
  • enrolled in school (from kindergarten to year 12)
  • a resident of NSW
  • hold a current medicare card

If you are a parent carer or guardian you can apply for a voucher for each eligible student.

What You’ll Need

  • a MyServiceNSW account
  • your child’s medicare details

To use the Active Kids voucher, give the details to your registered activity provider. You can Find an Active Kids provider on the Service NSW website. You have until 31 December 2018 to claim and use their voucher.
