Parents of school children across NSW are encouraged to take advantage of the $100 ‘Active Kids’ rebate for sporting and fitness related costs launching January 31, 2018.

The NSW Government will provide a $100 voucher to parents/guardians of school enrolled children.

The $100 voucher can be used for registration and participation costs for sport and fitness activities. 

The initiative aims to reduce barriers to participation and help change the physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW.

There will be no limits on the number of applications per family, as long as every child is enrolled in school.

The voucher is available to all children enrolled in school including children who are home schooled.

The voucher can be used for registration or membership fees for structured activities of no less than eight weeks’ duration that provide a moderate to vigorous level of physical activity.

For example: sporting pursuits, swimming lessons, structured fitness program, outdoor education programs, approved active recreation (dance etc), equipment ordinarily provided by the provider on registration for competition.

Please note that vouchers cannot be split between multiple clubs or registrations, and therefore you may not be able to claim the full $100.
