South Australian Govt Sports Vouchers program
What is the Sports Vouchers program?
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 from Reception to Year 7 to receive up to a $100 discount on sports or dance membership/registration fees. The purpose is to increase the number of children playing organised sport or participating in dance activities by reducing cost as a barrier.
From 1 January 2019 several changes have been made to the program, including the vouchers being increased from $50 to $100 and all forms of dance are now eligible. Learn more about changes to the 2019 program, click here.
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 (Reception to Year 7, even if Year 7 is based at a high 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 Provider’ tool.
How does the program work?
There are currently two methods of claiming a voucher. The method depends on the providers system. Some 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.
Providers access the secure Voucher Portal to redeem vouchers and receive reimbursement.
When will the program finish?
The Government of South Australia has approved to continue the Sports Vouchers program for a further four years until 2021-22.
South Port SLSC is registered to be part of this fantastic initiative.
