Keeping Kids Active
From 31 January 2018, parents will be able to claim up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher to reduce the cost of sport registration or membership fees for after-school, weekend and structured fitness or physical activity. Netball is an eligible sport, the Active Kids Rebate can significantly reduce the financial burden for parents when registering children for sports.
Who is eligble to receive the rebate?
The Active Kids Program provides an incentive to children enrolled in school (K-12) to get involved in sport by providing an annual $100 voucher (limit of one per child per year only), which can only be used when joining an approved activity, such as when registering your child to play netball.
How will the $100 rebate be applied?
Although details are yet to be confirmed, it is expected that from 31 January 2018, parents will be able to create a NSW Government MyService Account to register their child to participate in the Active Kids Rebate program. Parents will then receive a 16 digit voucher code to be used for an approved sport activity. Parents will be required to enter this voucher code at the time of completing the MyNetball online registration form.
Important: Voucher codes can not be applied retrospectively. We are advising parents to complete the online registration process only AFTER they have received their voucher code.
Is Galston Netball an approved provider under the Active Kids Rebate program?
Yes! We are an Affiliated Club of Netball NSW, a State Sporting Organisation under the Active Kids Rebate program. All activities offered by our Club are approved activities and accept use of the $100 rebate voucher.
