How KidSport works

Parents and guardians can apply for KidSport online.

KidSport applications are assessed by the local government in which the child resides or by the KidSport team at DLGSC. If an application is approved, the KidSport team will email you a voucher (unique to the child). The voucher code needs to be provided to  your KidSport Club when registering

Vouchers can be used as payment for registration, membership or participation fees. Where the KidSport Club has opted in, vouchers can also be used for essential uniform and equipment costs.

 All vouchers are valid for 90 days.
