From 31 January 2018, parents and carers of school-aged children enrolled in an approved sport or fitness activity can receive a $100 voucher to cover registration and participation costs for that calendar year.

Parents will be able to apply for and download their vouchers from the Service NSW website from the end of January.

Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the rebate would help to ease financial pressure on families.

“Our hope is that parents take advantage of this rebate and enrol their children in their preferred sport.”

Each child is eligible to receive one voucher every year for the next four years.

The program supports the Premier’s Priority to reduce childhood overweight and obesity by increasing participation in sport and changing physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW.
