Families with school children enrolled in community sport are set to benefit from the Active Kids $100 Rebate.

From 2018, parents will be able to claim up to $100 per school-aged child, per year, as a voucher to reduce the cost of sport registration or membership fees for after-school and weekend sport, and active recreation activities.

These activities could include sports such as:

  • swimming classes or lessons
  • football
  • basketball
  • netball
  • gymnastics
  • athletics.
  • Dance

The Active Kids Rebate is a key initiative in the 2017-18 NSW Budget and supports the Premier's priority to reduce overweight and obesity rates of children by five per cent over 10 years.

“We would love to see more young people participating in sport, we know promoting active habits early is a key factor for ensuring a generation of healthy kids and tackling rising obesity rates,” the Sports Minister, Mr Ayres said.

Parents will be able to register online and can take a sports voucher to a registered sports club or provider to receive their rebate.
