Playing a sport brings more than physical health — it helps kids to realise their potential, build confidence, learn new skills and make friends. Every child deserves to take part in sport, regardless of their circumstances, ability or where they come from.

KidSport has been supporting Western Australian children to participate in community sport and recreation since 2011. In the past 10 years, more than $36 million has supported 100,000+ kids to help pay club fees. That equates to more than 245,000 KidSport vouchers.

In 2021 we celebrate 10 years of KidSport by looking at the benefits to some former and current recipients — our KidSport champions.

The success of KidSport is due to the partnership between State Government, local governments, state sporting associations, sporting clubs and community organisations across WA.

Aaliyah Ugle

Aaliyah Ugle was a very athletic child, so it’s no wonder she’s now excelling in sport. With KidSport support, the Wheatbelt teen played for local basketball and netball teams. This year Aaliyah made her debut in the WA Football League.

Ben Hollow has a lot on his plate. The Mandurah teen is a keen sportsman and has tried a long list of different sports. He doesn’t discriminate either — team or individual sports — Ben loves them all.

Binar Sports

Binar Sports is more than a sporting club. The non-profit organisation supports primarily Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to get involved in sport. But it also provides important services that go beyond sport.

When Sunday Aryang couldn’t play basketball at her Midvale primary school, she thought she’d give netball a go.
