Introduction

The NSW Government is helping kids get active with the Active Kids program.

The Active Kids program provides two $100 vouchers for parents, guardians and carers of school-enrolled children to use towards sport and active recreation costs each year.

From 1 July 2019, parents, guardians and carers can apply for the second $100 Active Kids voucher.

Voucher 1 is valid January to December and Voucher 2 is valid July to December.

To use the voucher, find a registered activity provider and present your voucher when you sign up.

  • aged between 4.5 and 18 years
  • enrolled in school (from Kindergarten to Year 12, including those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW)
  • a current Medicare card holder.

You can apply for a voucher for each eligible student.

You can use the voucher for registration, participation or membership costs with an approved Active Kids provider.

What you need

  • a MyServiceNSW account
  • your child's Medicare card details
  • your child's height and weight (optional).

  1. Check the eligibility requirements.
  2. Select the 'Apply online' button.
  3. Log in to your account, or sign up for a MyServiceNSW Account.
  4. Follow the prompts to apply for the voucher.
    Note: If you're applying for a child's second voucher, select 'Apply for Active Kids Voucher 2' on the Services tab.

To use the voucher:

More information

A voucher can only be used:

  • once (if the fees for your chosen activity are less than $100, the remaining balance is forfeited and can't be used)
  • during the calendar year it's issued
  • for the person named on the voucher
  • for registration or membership fees with an approved Active Kids provider.

A voucher can't be:

  • split between more than one provider or registration (which means if you don't use the full $100 any remaining amount will not be used)
  • used for individual items (like jerseys, socks or boots)
  • used for the same activity within the same term as another Active Kids voucher
  • redeemed for cash.

To use the voucher, give the details to your registered activity provider.
