ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHER
WHAT IS THE ACTIVE KIDS REBATE?
From 1 January 2020 parents across NSW can create and redeem their next $100 Active Kids voucher. The program runs until 2021. That means, each year, parents can access $100 per school-enrolled child to cover registration, participation and membership costs for sport, fitness and active recreation activities.
Who is eligible to claim the voucher?
Every child (4.5 - 18 years’ old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 is eligible. This includes those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW.
The program is not means tested.
One voucher will be available for every child in the family annually over the next four years.
How long are vouchers valid?
The voucher can be used at any time during the calendar year it was issued.
Vouchers can only be used once (if the chosen activity fees are less than $100, then the remaining balance cannot be used).
What can the voucher be used for?
The voucher can be used for registration or membership fees for structured activities that are eight weeks or longer and provide a moderate to vigorous level of physical activity, for example:
structured fitness program
outdoor education programs
approved active recreation (dance etc)
equipment ordinarily provided by the provider on registration for competition.
Physical activity is defined as movement involving large muscles (e.g. running, swimming, aerobic activity). Physical activity must be planned, structured and involve repetitive bodily movement which improves or maintains physical fitness.
To use the voucher, give the details to an approved sport or activity provider.
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?
Vouchers cannot be used for individual items like jerseys, socks or boots that are not part of the registration cost.
Vouchers cannot be used for:
programs that are less than 8 weeks’ duration
gym membership that is not part of a structured program
activities that are part of the school curriculum or conducted during school hours
after-school care services and tutors
school-run competitions, including weekend inter-school sport competitions or activities
travel to and from competitions.
How do you download a voucher?
Parents, guardians and carers can apply for an Active Kids voucher through Service NSW. You will need the student’s Medicare card details to complete the transaction.
What if I registered for an activity or sport last year?
You won't receive a voucher for last year as the program commenced on 31 January 2018, but you can get a voucher for this year's activity or sport.
