Commencing 31 January 2018, the NSW Government is allocating $207 million over four years to establish Active Kids.

Active Kids is a program to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and active fitness and recreation activities. It is a voucher scheme and parents must apply for a voucher with Service NSW (i.e. not from Epping Eastwood FC or FNSW).

Every child (4.5 – 18 years’ old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher. This includes those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW. Only one voucher per child can be claimed per calendar year.

Epping Eastwood FC is a registered provider and you can use your voucher as a $100 discount on junior/mini player registration with us.

Obtain the Voucher Code first from Service NSW, then head to Play Football to register. During the registration process there is an option to enter in your Active Kids Voucher Code. The system will automatically validate this code and you will receive your discount if you have entered a valid code.

Can we explain all that again? Sure!

  • Parents apply for Voucher Code via Service NSW Website
  • Player registers via Play Football
  • Parents enter their Voucher Code during the registration process
  • The system will automatically check the validity of that code and where approved, the invoice
    will automatically update to be less $100
  • Service NSW will provide the Club with $100 for each eligible code entered by players registered to their Club.
  • Where the code entered by the parent is not valid, the parent will only be able to generate an invoice/make payment for the FULL Registration Fee.

Players will not be fully registered until the Active Kids Voucher Code is submitted and approved (or the additional $100 is otherwise paid).

If you choose not to use an Active Kids Voucher and pay in full, you CANNOT change your mind and use the Voucher later. (Although you can use if for another sport if your child does other activities). Also, you are not required to use an Active Kids Voucher if you don't want to, or if you prefer to use if for something else.

From 15 January 2018 there will be a specific support centre in place for the Active Kids Voucher Program and this will be managed by Service NSW and/or Office of Sport. Any questions or queries in specific relation to the eligibility of a child for the Active Kids Voucher Program will need to be directed to the Service NSW/Office of Sport Support centre (not Epping Eastwood FC).

Note that the Active Kids Voucher can only be used once per year per child and only for one sport each year. It can NOT be exchanged for cash under any circumstances. If you cancel your player registration with us, we can only refund the remaining part of your registration and not the $100 voucher. However if you transfer to another club in GHFA or NWSWF we will transfer the $100 voucher to the other club. We are legally prohibited from refunding the voucher as cash.
