 Jenny Henderson Sun 9 July 17



Highly likely it's a yes as it won't be means tested!

From 1st January 2018, the Active Kids Rebate will help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and fitness activities. 

The following information is quoted from NSW Government Office of Sport:

Parents will be able to claim up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher to reduce the cost of sport registration or membership fees for after-school, weekend and structured fitness or physical activity. These activities could include: traditional sport such as netball, football or basketball; swimming classes or lessons; as well as other fitness or physical activities such as gymnastics or athletics.

A comprehensive list of eligible sports and activities will be finalised following community consultation ahead of the start date, to allow providers to register with the NSW Office of Sport. The voucher will not be means-tested and available to every school child wanting to get active in their community through sport and active recreation. Parents will be able to register online to get their voucher to a sports club or registered provider to receive the rebate.

The Active Kids Rebate will help deliver on the Premier’s Priority of reducing child overweight and obesity rates by five per cent over 10 years.
