Active Kids vouchers

We are please to announce that the Active Kids program is now live.

Its an initiative by NSW Government to help families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and active fitness and recreation activities. The program will enable a claim of up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher.

The Lane Cove Cats, under the umbrella of the AFL NSW/ACT, is registered as an Active Kids Provider.

How to apply for an Active Kids voucher

Parents can apply for a voucher from the Service NSW website from 31st January. Please note that you will need to have an account with Service NSW to claim the rebate. To avoid the rush, I would encourage you to set one up now. It only takes a couple of minutes.

Go to https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/ and click on “Apply for a voucher”. You will then be required to enter details of your child.

The voucher that you claim can only be used for one sports registration at any time during the calendar year (up to December 31st 2018).

Who is eligible to claim?

Every child (4.5 – 18 years old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher.

What to do once you receive a voucher?

If you have yet to register with Lane Cove Cats (either Auskick or junior football), click here to start the process. During the registration process, you will be asked to enter your alpha-numeric voucher code.

If you have already registered your child and elected to pay later using this voucher,  you would have been sent an email at the time of registration with instructions on how to pay the registration fee.
