NSW Government Sports Rebate

In 2018 the NSW Government will be launching the Active Kids Program.
This initiative will, in effect entitle parents/guardians to receive $100 per eligible child to contribute to the cost of playing our game.

Important Notes

  • Parents/guardians/carers will need to generate a unique ID number for each of their eligible children via the Service NSW website using their Medicare Card.
  • To receive this rebate they must apply to Service NSW.
  • The parent will be issued with a voucher code which they will enter into PlayFootball when registering their child with your club.
  • When registering with the voucher code the participant will receive a $100 discount.

Some useful information

  • The rebate can be used to offset football registration fees for school aged children.
  • Any rebate such as this helps make football affordable and accessible for all.
  • From January 2018, parents will be able to claim up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher to reduce the cost of sport registration or membership fees for after-school and weekend sport, and active recreation activities.
