KidSport wants to make it possible for children whose families could not normally afford it, to participate in community sport and recreation. KidSport will allow eligible youth aged 5–18 years to apply for financial assistance to enroll in a sporting club of their choice (as long as that club is registered with KidSport), and will pay up to $150 per year towards the club fees.

KidSport is made possible by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

How do I apply?

You must have a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card to be eligible.

To apply for this financial assistance, you fill out the KidSport Application online at 

The fees will go directly from KidSport to the sporting clubs participating in the project.

If you want more information, you can contact Community Development Officer, Tahnee Bird at the Shire of Goomalling, on 9629 1101, or read more information on the Department of Sport and Recreation's website.
