CRC Service Fees 2016-2017


The Shire of Yilgarn is a successful recipient of KidSport funding.

The State government through the Department of Sport and Recreation is a major supporter of KidSport in WA.

KidSport enables Western Australian children to participate in community sport and recreation, no matter their financial circumstances.

Eligible youth aged 5–18 years can apply for financial assistance to contribute towards club fees.

The fees will go directly to the registered KidSport clubs through their participating local government.

While the primary objective of KidSport is to ensure all Western Australian children can participate in sport and recreation clubs, its secondary objective is to engage these children and their families in the community.

Please visit the CRC to obtain an application form or click here: kidsport-brochure-July2015.

Please hand in the form to the CRC.
