Returning once again in 2019, the NSW Government’s Active Kids voucher is a program to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and active fitness and recreational activities. The program takes the form of a $100 voucher available to parents/guardians of school enrolled children. The $100 voucher can be used to help cover registration costs for sport and fitness activities and football is part of this program. Every child (4.5 - 18 years’ old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher. The scheme is not means tested and one $100 voucher is available each year for each child covering the Jan-Dec period.
The vouchers for the 2019 calendar year are available from 1st Jan 2019 from Service NSW at https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher
You will need an active Service NSW account, your child’s Medicare card details and their height and weight. Once you have completed the online application you will be emailed a voucher number.
Make sure that you have obtained your voucher number first before you commence online ‘playfootball’ registration as you will need to enter the voucher number during the online registration process to obtain your $100 discount
