Families will be able to apply for up to $500 in KidSport vouchers per eligible child to ensure the child can participate in their favourite sport over the next year.
KidSport enables eligible children to participate in community sport by offering financial assistance towards club fees, and essential playing equipment and uniforms. In 2023-24, 25,500 children benefited from the program, which is administered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Industries (DLGSC).
The announcement to increase the voucher amount to $500 per eligible child for this financial year was recently announced by the Premier for Western Australia and Minister for Sport and Recreation on Sunday 7 July 2024.
The new $3 million boost in financial support for KidSport is the second recent increase for the program. In August 2023 the State Government announced that the amount families can apply for through the KidSport program was lifted from $150 to $300, and the list of what vouchers can be used for was expanded to include essential playing equipment and uniforms.
KidSport is available to children between 5 and 18 years who are named on a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, with up to $500 available per child, per financial year. Check if your child is eligible and apply online for vouchers to use at any KidSport Club today.
KidSport is delivered by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries in partnership with local governments throughout Western Australia.
