ACTIVE KIDS Program

To All Kissing Point parents of school age children

The information below has been taken from the Office of Sports website and relates to the ACTIVE KIDS voucher program –  https://sport.nsw.gov.au/sectordevelopment/activekids

You will be able to use your voucher if you register your child with Kissing Point Netball AFTER 31st January 2018 and after you have downloaded the voucher from the ACTIVE KIDS website.

If you are planning on using your voucher for another sport, you are welcome to register your child without completing the voucher section.

Commencing 31 January 2018

The NSW Government will allocate $207 million over four years to establish Active Kids. Active Kids is a program to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and active fitness and recreation activities.

What is Active Kids?

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.

Who is eligible to claim the voucher?

Every child (4.5 – 18 years’ old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher. This includes those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW.    It will not be means tested.

How long are vouchers valid?

Vouchers provided are valid for redemption during the current calendar year activity program (Year 1 will commence from 31 January and expire on 31 December 2018). Vouchers shall expire at the end of the calendar year.

No availability exists for retrospective redemption of vouchers.  Vouchers are available for redemption once only for the nominated registered season or term of activity.

What can the voucher be used for?

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.  The vouchers will be redeemable through approved sport, fitness and physical activity providers upon registration.

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

How do you download a voucher?

From 31 January 2018, parents/guardians/carers with legal responsibility of an eligible child resident in NSW will be able to download a voucher from an online platform. The platform will be run by Service NSW and can be accessed through the ACTIVE KIDS website.
