Participating in sport brings significant value to kids, their families & the wider community. Thankfully, State / Territory Governments across Australia recognise this. One such way they are directly supporting getting more kids active is through various “voucher” programs to help offset some participation costs.
The respective State / Territory Governments provide funding relief to offset some of the costs associated with participating in sport. Eligibility varies between each State / Territory; however, it typically applies to families with an eligible Health Care / Pensioner Card with a child 5-18 years old. Voucher values of $100-$200 are available. Click on the relevant link below to understand the full eligibility criteria & process. Parents would work through these simple steps to gain the benefits.
Step 1 – Apply for the voucher via the relevant government website
Step 2 – When approved, use the voucher code when registering via Play.afl
