What is Active Kids?

Each year, school-enrolled children in NSW are eligible to access two $100 
Active Kids vouchers.

The Active Kids Program is funded by the NSW Government until 2023. Active Kids vouchers can be used with any registered Active Kids Provider, to help cover costs towards registration or membership fees for sport, physical activity and active recreation. Active Kids Voucher 1 is available from January and Voucher 2 is available from July (both valid through to December 31).

Every school aged student is eligible for another Active Kids voucher from 1 July. So don’t forget to redeem your voucher in July and try another fun Active Kids activity. If you don’t use it by 31 December – you lose it!
