$100 for Active Kids

Does a child in your care want to get active with sport? More than one million school children across the state are now eligible for the NSW Government’s new annual $100 Active Kids voucher.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said, “This is a fantastic boost for parents because we know the cost of kids’ sport and activities can really add up. Active Kids is one of the ways the NSW Government is easing cost of living pressures on families.”

“We have allocated $207 million over the next four years to help parents with the costs of getting their kids into sport.”

Active Kids will contribute $100 for every child towards the cost of sports registration, membership expenses and fees for physical activities such as swimming, dance lessons and athletics.

Sports Minister Stuart Ayres said parents can now register online with Service NSW to receive their $100 voucher to provide to their approved sport or physical activity club or organisation.

“Active kids are happy and healthy kids and this is going to make a difference to many families. This program means that every child in the State has the opportunity to be fit and active in their community,” Mr Ayres said.

You can apply for the voucher online using your MyServiceNSW account and then redeem the voucher at your local sporting club or approved provider.

We want every child in NSW to be able to use their voucher, so we encourage parents to speak to their local club about registering to be an approved provider.
