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 after a short break and the start of a New Year, 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
