Available from January 2018 – the NSW Government will provide a rebate through a voucher system to parents/guardians of school enrolled children.
The $100 voucher can be used for registration and participation costs for sport and fitness activities.
The initiative will reduce the barriers to participation and help change the physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW.
The majority of children and adolescents in NSW are not meeting the daily recommended levels of physical activity. In 2015, more than 1 in 5 children in NSW was overweight or obese.
