Using the voucher

KidSport must be used at point of payment, refunds will not be given for club fees that have already been paid. This means that you must be approved for KidSport and have your code when paying fees.

All voucher codes will have a 90-day expiry from the date you receive the approval email. If for some reason you are unable to provide the club with the code within the 90 days and the code expires, you can simply reapply online (if in the appropriate calendar year).

KidSport vouchers can only be used for registration fees and not the purchase of uniform or equipment. If you are looking for ways to keep the cost of playing sport down, we suggest you contact your club to see if they have second-hand uniforms and equipment, or try organisations such as Fair Game who help out with recycled equipment.

No health care card or pensioner concession card?

KidSport funding is an initiative to support low income families, therefore a Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card is required. If your family is experiencing financial hardship as a result of an unforeseen situation you may be eligible to access KidSport without a concession card if you meet one of the KidSport financial exceptions.

Eligible individuals can only be approved through a financial exception once.
