Upgrading your membership

Members who hold a recreational swimming membership can upgrade to a competitive membership at their club by following the steps here. If you are upgrading from a membership that was purchased using an Active Kids Voucher please follow the relevant process here first.

Active Kids Program

  • Save up to $50 on your membership with an Active Kids Voucher
  • Effective 1 July 2023, The NSW Government has announced changes to the Active Kids vouchers which include dropping the value of the voucher from $100 to $50. Further changes will come into effect from 1 February 2024. The effects of these changes will be communicated in the coming months.

    Please note: vouchers issued for use from July 2023 cannot be redeemed for your 2023/24 swimming memberships until your club is ready, which will be any time from early September onwards.

    You can apply online for vouchers at the Service NSW Website. Please note your club must be registered as an Active Kids provider in order for you to be able to use your voucher for Swimming Registration fees. Please check with your club if you are unsure whether or not they are a provider.

    Once the required information is completed, an alpha-numeric voucher code will be provided that can then be used to offset the cost of physical activity participation. The voucher can only be redeemed for one sport per calendar year. Vouchers are valid for redemption during the current calendar year and will expire at the end of the calendar year. Vouchers cannot be used retrospectively. Ensure you contact your club prior to payment if you wish to use a voucher. 

    For more information about the Active Kids Program see our Active Kids FAQs.
