Now more than ever, Victorian kids deserve the chance to get outside and be active, and the Victorian Government will support up to 100,000 children to get back on the pitch, court, the nets or field – to play with their team.

The Get Active Kids Voucher Program helps eligible families get their kids involved in organised sport and recreation activities by reimbursing the cost of membership and registration fees, uniforms and equipment. Eligible children may be able to receive up to $200 each.

When you can apply?

There are specific dates (claim periods) when you can apply. You must have incurred your expenses within specific dates too.

There is a total of 100,000 vouchers available from 1 March 2021 until 17 April 2022.

Subject to availability, you can apply for up to two vouchers for each eligible child from 1 March 2021 to 17 April 2022. However, you can only apply for one voucher per child in a claim period.
