Active Kids allows parents of school-enrolled children to claim two $100 vouchers to use towards sport and active recreation costs each year.
This year, the first voucher was available to claim in January. A second voucher will be available via MyService NSW on 1 July 2019. Both vouchers expire on 31 December 2019.
Parents can use the vouchers at a registered activity provider.
In the first 18 months of the program, more than 1 million vouchers were redeemed and $100 million saved in fees and sports registration costs.
NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said these household savings have contributed to a spike in registrations across NSW.
“The NSW Government is doing everything we can to help ease the cost of living for families, and by adding a second $100 voucher we hope to see parents being able to keep their kids active all year-round,” Mr Perrottet said.
Minster for Sport John Sidoti said another voucher for kids is another win for families in NSW.
“Just as the second Active Kids voucher provides even greater opportunity for children to participate in sport and active recreation, it reduces costs for hard working families,” Mr Sidoti said.
