The NSW Government initiative of the Active Kids Rebate is now available to be redeemed from Service NSW.
If you want to claim the $100 Active Kids Rebate before registering, or have already registered and chose the "deferred"option, please go to service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher or click here.
The rebate is aimed to help reduce the barriers for families wanting to have their children participate in the activities of sport and fitness, by helping with the cost of wanting to be a part of a sporting community.
Therefore the NSW Government has allocated each child aged from 4.5 - 18 years' old and enrolled in full time school a $100 voucher, which can be applied to the overall cost such as registration and other sign up costs.
