Active Kids Information For Parents

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

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

The vouchers may be used with a registered activity provider for registration fees, participation and membership costs for sport, as well as fitness and active recreation activities.

We know that COVID was tough for everyone and kids especially. They missed out on some great experiences, that they would normally have had through participating in sport and active recreation.

So now is the perfect time to get back into it and get your kids active, moving and having fun.

We are now in the fourth year of Active Kids in NSW and we have achieved some big things with you all:

  • 4.4 million vouchers created 
  • 3.6 million vouchers redeemed  
  • Over $358 million invested into the NSW sport and active recreation sector
  • 11,000+ providers on board

Why get active? 

Being active has many benefits including improved health and physical outcomes. Participation in sport and recreation also helps children to develop skills they can use long after the siren sounds. Not only does it provide opportunities for social interaction, inclusion and improved self-esteem, it helps children learn skills that they can use in many aspects of life, such as:

  • Leadership
  • Problem solving
  • Resilience
  • Teamwork
