ACTIVE KIDS $100 REBATE
The 2020 Active Kids Rebate Voucher of $100 is now available to be redeemed via https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher
Active Kids is a program to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and active fitness and recreation activities.
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.
The initiative aims to reduce barriers to participation and help change the physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW.
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 and one voucher will be available for every child in the family annually over the next four years.
There will be no limits on the number of applications per family, as long as every child is enrolled in school.
How long are vouchers valid?
Vouchers provided are valid for redemption during the current calendar year activity program. There will be two (2) vouchers available each calendar year, the first voucher will be available from January 1st 2020 and can be redeemed between the 1st of January 2020 – 31st December 2020. The second voucher will be available to be redeemed from the 1st of July 2020, and can be used from the 1st of July 2020 and will expire at the end of the 2020 calendar year (December).
No availability exists for retrospective redemption of vouchers.
Vouchers are available for redemption once only for the nominated registered season or term of activity.
The voucher can be used for football or futsal season registration or football programs of no less than eight weeks’ duration.
The vouchers will be redeemable at point of registration playfootball.com.au
Please note that vouchers cannot be split between multiple clubs or registrations, and therefore you may not be able to claim the full $100.
What can’t the voucher be used for?
Individual items (such as jerseys, socks, boots, etc.) that would usually be purchased from a retailer and paid for by the individual as part of participating in the activity separate to any membership or registration fees charged by the provider.
How do you apply for a voucher?
Via the Service NSW website https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher
What happens if my child lives outside NSW?
To be eligible for a voucher, each child must reside in NSW.
The club or activity provider where the child registers must also be located and operating in NSW.
Some examples are:
My child lives in NSW and plays in a NSW club – the child is eligible to claim a voucher
My child lives in QLD and plays in a NSW club – the child is ineligible to claim a voucher
My child lives in NSW, goes to school in VIC – the child is eligible to claim a voucher
My child lives in NSW but plays in a local club located in VIC – the child is eligible to claim a voucher but cannot use the voucher at a club operating outside NSW.
Parents/carers/guardians of children in rural or remote areas of NSW and/or children with disabilities who may not otherwise meet the above criteria may discuss their registration with the Office of Sport.
