KidSport

 

General KidSport Information

Our local governments have created an initiative enabling children from families who are eligible to receive a payment towards one sport a year.  KidSport will allow eligible youth aged 5–18 years to apply for financial assistance to contribute towards club fees. The fees will go directly to the registered KidSport clubs participating in the project through their local government. Once an applicant is approved for KidSport by their local government, the applicant will receive an email with a Code. The applicant must present this code to the Club prior to registering for the season.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applicant must be aged 5 to 18 years.
  • Applicant must be named on a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, with their individual Centrelink Client Reference Number (CRN) clearly displayed on the uploaded card.
  • Registration must be for a KidSport approved club. 

Amount Available

  • A maximum of $150 per calendar year is available per eligible child. This can be used across multiple sports. 
  • KidSport must be used at point of payment, refunds will not be given for club fees that have already been paid. This means that you must be approved for KidSport and have your code when paying fees – please remember to allow enough time for your application to be processed before your child’s season starts.
