Funds should only be exchanged between the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries (department) and a club. Refunds to the department may only be considered in extenuating circumstances. Examples of these circumstances are outlined below.
The KidSport program supports individual club refund policies. Parents are encouraged to confirm their intentions to play with a club prior to providing their KidSport code. Please see tips below which we hope will assist in decreasing the requirement for refunds for both families and clubs.
If a parent requests a refund due to an extenuating circumstance (and this aligns to the club’s refund policy) clubs will be required to follow the steps as listed below. Where a club has incurred any out of pocket expenses for the child, they will not be asked to refund these expenses. Out of pocket expenses are defined as fair and reasonable expenses deducted by the club for example if the club has already forwarded funding to the national body. Adequate documentation or proof may be requested.
