Helping families help more kids play the sports they love

Published: 1 May 2024

More kids across Victoria have the opportunity to play the sports they love, with more Get Active Kids vouchers to make participating in sport more affordable for families – so even more kids can join in on the fun and gain the lifelong healthy skills that sport provides.

The Victorian Budget 2024/25 is investing an extra $6 million to extend the Get Active Kids Voucher Program.

Eligible families include those with health care cards or other concession cards and can apply for vouchers of up to $200 per child to help with the upfront costs of memberships, registration fees, uniforms and equipment across a wide range of sporting codes and recreation activities.

Almost 150,000 vouchers have been provided to families since the Victorian Government launched the scheme in 2020, with more than half of recipients saying their kids would not have been able to participate in their favourite sport without the voucher.

From soccer to dance, there are more than 2,000 registered sport providers available for families across the state – providing a sport that every Victorian kid can love.

Families can apply for the vouchers online before redeeming them at a Get Active Kids Voucher Registered Activity Provider like a local sporting club. The next round of applications will open this Spring..

The program is open to Victorian children aged up to 18 who are named on a valid Commonwealth Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card and named on a valid Medicare Card at the time of application.

Families are encouraged to subscribe to the email notification to find out when the next round of the vouchers start later this year at Get Active Kids Voucher Program.
