The Government of South Australia has approved a program budget until 2017/18. The Minister for Recreation and Sport opened the program in February 2015 with a letter to parents.
What is the Sports Vouchers program?
The Sports Vouchers program is a Government of South Australia initiative administered by the Office for Recreation and Sport. The program provides an opportunity for primary school aged children from Reception to Year 7 to receive up to a $50 discount on sports membership/registration fees. The purpose is to increase the number of children playing organised sport by reducing cost as a barrier to participate in sport.
Who is eligible for the program?
All South Australian primary school aged children, meaning if the child is attending or is eligible to attend primary school. Remember it is one voucher for every primary school aged child per calendar year. To find your nearest provider please use the ‘Find a Club’ tool.
How does the program work?
There are currently two methods of claiming a voucher. The method depends on the providers system. Some sports and providers have online registrations, claiming the voucher has been integrated into their systems.
If the provider does not have the voucher integrated into their online registrations, you’ll need to download the voucher. Once completed, take the voucher to an approved provider to receive a discount on the fees when you register at the provider.
Providers access the secure Voucher Portal to redeem vouchers and receive reimbursement.
