Council is looking to make kids' exercise more affordable with today’s launch of its pilot Children’s Sport and Activity Voucher program.

The voucher offers a $25 reduction in fees for kids (between 4-18 years) when they sign up to a sporting group or activity provider offering a program of physical activity. 

Parents simply apply for a voucher using the form below, then provide their child's sporting body with the uniquely generated receipt number.

The sporting body then reduces the participant's fees by $25, and invoices Council for a rebate.

500 vouchers will be available until April 2020, or until the allocation has been exhausted.

Mayor Darriea Turley encouraged all local parents to take advantage of the program.

"It's a quick and easy way to make sport and exercise more affordable for families, and help ensure the city's kids have every opportunity to live a healthy, active life," said Mayor Turley.

"It's only a pilot program at this stage, but if it proves popular we'll certainly look at extending it into the future."

Please note the voucher can be used in conjunction with the NSW Government's $100 Active Kids voucher, which is available here
