The NSW government has allocated $207 million over four years to establish the Active Kids Rebate program to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and fitness activities.
What is the Active Kids Voucher Program?
From 1 January 2019, parents will be able to claim up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher 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 (8) weeks or more.
The voucher can be redeemed towards payment of memberships or fees with an approved provider registered with the Active Kids Voucher program, each calendar year.
Who is eligible for a voucher?
Every child enrolled in school from Kindergarten to year 12 will be eligible for the Active Kids Voucher.
How do participants access the voucher?
From 1 January, 2019, a parent or guardian 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 during the Footyweb registration process. The voucher can only be redeemed for one sport per calendar year.
When can families start downloading and using their vouchers?
From 1 January, 2019, families will be able to apply for their voucher(s) online from the MyServiceNSW portal. 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.
