The Sports Vouchers program is a Government of South Australia initiative administered by the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing. The program provides an opportunity for primary school aged children to receive up to a $100 discount on membership/registration fees, and is designed to increase the number of children playing organised sport or participating in dance activities by reducing the cost as a barrier.
For more information about the program view the Sports Vouchers website HERE ( https://www.sportsvouchers.sa.gov.au/ )
The SA Government announced the expansion of Sports Vouchers to students in Years 8 and 9. THIS WILL COMMENCE FROM 1 JANUARY 2022. This means in 2022, children aged 5 to 15 years old (inclusive) will be eligible for a Sports Voucher (these children will have a year of birth from 2007 to 2017).
For the remainder of 2021, the current eligibility will continue – primary school aged children from Reception to Year 7 (even if Year 7 is based at a high school). For 2021 this means eligible children will have a year of birth from 2008 to 2016.

Our club is registered to accept sports vouchers as part payment (up to $100) of membership and training fees, so if your child has not used a sports voucher in the relevant calendar year then please complete a voucher claim form and send it to the clubs treasurer. We will submit the claim and adjust your fees accordingly.
