Active Kids Rebate

02 Jan 2018

 

Active Kids Program Rebate (AKPR)

 

From 31 January 2018, the NSW Government will provide $100 through a voucher system for parents/guardians/ carers to contribute to the cost of their children’s participation in sport and active recreation. The voucher can be redeemed towards payment of membership or fees with an approved provider registered with the Active Kids Program, each calendar year.

 

All children aged 4.5 to 18 years old, enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12, and residing in NSW will be eligible for a voucher. This includes students who are homeschooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW  or equivalent.

 

The voucher:

 

• will not be means tested

 

 • will be available for each school-aged child in the family, every calendar year, over the next four years

 

• can be used for registration or membership fees for a structured program of at least eight weeks’ duration

 

• can only be used once with one provider i.e. it cannot be split between multiple clubs or activity registrations.

 

There are four steps to apply for and redeem vouchers under AKPR:

 

1.       Visit sport.nsw.gov.au/activekids. Read the Guidelines and Fact Sheets  to learn about the program.

 

2.       Visit service.nsw.gov.au and create or  login to your MyServiceNSW Account.

 

3.       Complete an Active Kids application through your MyServiceNSW Account.  You will receive a voucher with a unique ID number for each  child you register (available to download, print and email).

 

4.       Redeem your voucher  - take your child’s voucher to a registered activity provider; or log onto your  provider’s website to enrol and enter the voucher ID number.

 

AKPR will be available on 31 January and redeeming of the voucher when playing with Gladesville Sharks will be via registration on the MyFootballClub website.

 

Registration for the 2018 winter season on MyFootballClub will be available from 3 January. If you are intending to access the voucher, registration on MyFootballClub before the launch of AKPR on 31 January will involve accessing an Additional Item of Deferred Payment which will reduce the amount that you will have to pay by $100. After the AKPR launch on 31 January, you will need to follow the AKPR guidelines to apply for a voucher before returning to MyFootballClub to register your unique voucher ID number before players will be activated and cleared to play in 2018.

 

If you are registering on MyFootballClub after the AKPR launch on 31 January, you will need to follow the AKPR guidelines to apply for a voucher before going to MyFootballClub and registering using your unique voucher ID number.  This will result in a reduction of $100 in the amount that you will have to pay.
