Information for approved KidSport clubs

Below are a few tips to support approved clubs to keep their club information up to date and manage the KidSport voucher process.

Updating your club fees and details

Club details can be managed by logging into your KidSport club portal. If you don’t know your log in details you will need to provide club name, primary contact name, position, telephone number, preferred club email address, evidence of your role at the club (for instance minutes, club website with your name on it etc.).

It is important that contact details, fee structures and bank details in the club portal are up to date and accurate at all times to ensure clubs receive the appropriate payment when vouchers are redeemed.

Parent/guardians need to know what the club fees will cost so they can claim the appropriate KidSport amount (up to $150). Please note that parents can only choose one listed registration fee. If you have a different registration fee for different age groups, please list these and make them clear so a parent can choose the right fee for example U/12s rego fee $120, U/15s rego fee $140.

Please ensure that all associated costs are listed as a part of one fee i.e. insurance, state association affiliation cost, training fee etc.

Clubs cannot have differing fee amounts for KidSport and non-KidSport children.

For more information download the KidSport club how-to guide.

Helping parents apply for KidSport

As long as the parent/guardian gives permission then a club representative can assist to complete the online KidSport application process. The parent/guardian must provide the club with a personal email address for the application.

KidSport cannot be used retrospectively by a family. A parent/child needs to provide their KidSport code when they are registering.

Vouchers expiry

All voucher codes will have a 90-day expiry from the date the parent/guardian and club receive the approval email. The parent/guardian must provide the approved voucher code at the point of club registration. The club is responsible for processing the voucher for the fees within the 90 day period.

If for some reason you do not receive the code within the 90 period, then it will expire and the parent/guardian will need to reapply online (if in the appropriate calendar year).
