KidSport makes it possible for children to participate in community sport and recreation, no matter their financial circumstances. KidSport allows eligible youth aged 5 – 18 years to apply for financial assistance to contribute towards club fees.
A maximum of $150 per child, per calendar year, is available and will cover the cost of club registration fees to join a nominated sport and recreation club.
As of 1 January 2018, all voucher codes will have a 90 day expiry. What this means, is that from the date you receive your approval email you will have 90 days to provide your code to the club. If you are unable to provide your club the code within the 90 days, you can simply reapply online (if in the appropriate calendar year).
Am I Eligible?
To be eligible, applicants must be a resident of the City of Gosnells, aged between 5 and 18 years and have either a Health Care or Pension Concession Card.
If the applicant is unable to provide a Health Care or Pension Concession Card then the applicant can contact the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries to be referred to an approved KidSport Financial Assessor.
How can I apply?
If you hold a valid Health Care Card / Pension Concession Card, you can apply for Kidsport online.
Please ensure you have access to a scanner, or have an electronic copy of your Health Care/ Pensioner concession card so it is ready to attach as a file online.
Successful applicants will receive an email with a six-character code they can submit to their club.
How are payments made?
If successful, payments are made from the City directly to the applicant's nominated sport and recreation club.
Where is my nearest sport and recreation club?
