Active Kids Vouchers

If you'd like to use an Active Kids Voucher for your Swimming NSW membership fees, please contact your club registrar or the Swimming NSW office (02 9763 5833 during office hours) prior to payment.  Vouchers cannot be used retrospectively and refunds will not be provided if payment is processed prior to voucher verification. Click here for more information. 

Active Kids Program

  • Save up to $100 on your membership with an Active Kids Voucher
  • Since January 2018, parents have been able to claim up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher to reduce the cost of sport registration or membership fees for after-school, weekend and structured fitness or physical activity, that runs for a duration of eight weeks or more.

    The voucher can be redeemed towards payment of memberships or fees with an approved provider registered with the Active Kids Voucher program, each calendar year.

    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.
