The State Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (Formally 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.

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.


  • Funding will cover the cost of registration fees to join the nominated sport or recreation club. The vouchers that parents complete will be paid directly to clubs from Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
  • Maximum of up to $300 per child per financial year for eligible youth aged between 5–18 years
  • Fees are only for the nominated registered season.
  • All vouchers will need to be redeemed (using the voucher code) within 90 days of approval or they will expire. 
  • No retrospective fees will be paid (exceptions may apply), and refunds will not be accepted.
  • There is no limitation to applications per family as long as each child meets the required KidSport criteria.
  • There are new policies regarding KidSport clubs - please visit the KidSport website by clicking HERE, or contact the CRC on 9049 1688 for further information.
