Active Kids (NSW)

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

After the start date, approved providers (local cricket clubs in NSW) registered with the Active Kids program can accept and redeem valid vouchers from recipients.

If you’re a parent, carer or guardian, the student will be eligible if they are:
  • a NSW resident with a valid Australian Medicare Card
  • aged between 4.5 and 18 years, and
  • enrolled in school (from Kindergarten to Year 12, including those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW).
Vouchers can only be used:
  • one time (if the chosen activity fees are less than $100, then the remaining balance cannot be used)
  • during the calendar year they’re issued
  • for the person named on the voucher
  • for registration or membership fees with approved Active Kids providers.
Vouchers cannot be:
  • split between more than one provider or registration (meaning you may not be able to the claim the full $100)
  • used for individual items (like jerseys, socks or boots)
  • redeemed for cash.
Active Kids Vouchers can be redeemed by registering as a NSW participant for Cricket Blast, Junior or Senior Club Registration forms (as long as they meet the above criteria).
