Supporting our kids to get ready, get set, get active

Published: 10 October 2023

Applications are now open for the latest round of the Get Active Kids Voucher Program to support eligible children and families from across Victoria with the cost of participating and playing local sport.

More young Victorians can join their local sports club and discover the benefits of being active thanks to the Victorian Government’s latest round of these sports vouchers.

Vouchers of up to $200 per child are available for eligible families to use at their registered provider without the worry of upfront costs. Each voucher can be used to pay for memberships, registration fees, uniforms and equipment across a wide range of sporting codes and recreation activities.

The program encourages children to participate in physical activity and increase support for families who face additional barriers to participating in community sport.

Rise Netball Club, based in Melbourne’s west, has been a registered activity provider across multiple rounds of the program. Alongside welcoming newcomers, Rise has also seen kids remain involved in netball to develop and hone their skills in the game they love, thanks to the voucher program.

Since the program started in 2020, the Government has distributed more than 115,000 vouchers to eligible families, ensuring more young Victorians can get in the game.

Importantly, around half of the recipients in the most recent round of the program indicated they wouldn’t have been able to participate in sport and recreation without the vouchers.

The Victorian Budget 2023/24 is providing more than $11 million for initiatives including the Get Active Kids Voucher Program to help keep Victorians active and healthy and address key barriers to participation.
