New South Wales football families capitalise on the Active Kids Rebate, with over 50,000 vouchers redeemed towards football for 2018.
Football families across New South Wales have saved a combined $5.5m in registration costs thanks to the NSW Government’s Active Voucher program.
Football NSW CEO Stuart Hodge said that program, which gives parents a $100 rebate off the cost of sport, had been a huge success with 55,000 parents redeeming their voucher by registering for football clubs.
“The Active Kids rebate has had a massive take up with football with approximately 50% of all vouchers redeemed for football registrations.”
“The overwhelming use of the voucher for football registrations underlines the massive participation that our sport enjoys and how vital programs like this are in supporting families.”
“The State Government has taken a huge step forward in reducing the barriers which have previously prohibited individuals from participating within sport.”
On the 31st of January the NSW Government released the Active Kids Rebate program, which entitles every school child aged from 4.5 – 18 years to redeem $100 off the cost of participating in sport outside of the school curriculum.
Since its short introduction, the Active Kids Rebate has proved to be a welcome financial offset for families within NSW. Within 12 days of the rebate’s commencement, just over 100,000 vouchers have been redeemed with 56,000 of those being used towards football for the upcoming 2018 season.
The rebate has been implemented with an initial time frame of four years, which will in turn see the NSW Government allocate a total of $207 million dollars throughout this period.
