About Active Kids
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.
The vouchers may be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and membership costs for sport, fitness and active recreation activities.
All children aged 4.5 to 18 years old, enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12, residing in NSW with a valid Australian Medicare card will be eligible for a voucher.
This includes students who are home- schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW or equivalent.

In 2018, parents/guardians/carers can claim one voucher per school-enrolled child.
The voucher can be redeemed through an approved sport, fitness or physical activity provider at the time of registration.
Parents/guardians/carers must apply for their child’s voucher.

An application for a voucher can be made any time throughout the year.Vouchers provided are valid for redemption during the current calendar year activity program (Year 1 will commence from the 31 January and expire on the 31 December). Vouchers shall expire at the end.
