A number of State Governments offer incentives to encourage kids to participate in sport. Participating States have been listed below
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.

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.
