The NSW Government* is helping kids get active with the Active Kids program. The program, launched in 2018, provides parents, guardians and carers with a voucher twice per calendar year which can be applied towards the cost of active sport and recreation fees valued up to $100 (twice) for each student enrolled in school. The voucher has been developed to reduce the cost of sport registration or membership fees for after-school, weekend and structured fitness or physical activity, that runs for a duration of eight weeks or more.
Voucher one is valid January to December and Voucher two is valid July to December.
Please note that providers will be reimbursed the actual value of the activity up to $100 and do not automatically receive $100 for each voucher.
Swimming NSW has registered all affiliated clubs in NSW with the Office of Sport. You can find information on how to administer the Active Kids program here.
Claiming Active Kids Vouchers
Parents/guardians can apply online at the Service NSW Website.
Once the required information is completed, an alpha-numeric voucher code will be provided that can then be used to offset the cost of physical activity participation. The voucher can only be redeemed for one sport per calendar year Vouchers are valid for redemption during the current calendar year and will expire at the end of the calendar year. Vouchers cannot be used retrospectively.
