Get sport vouchers for your child

Children living in an urban area will automatically receive two $100 sport vouchers each year from their school, one in January and one in July, for sport, recreation and cultural activities.

If your child is starting school for the first time or starting at a new school, you will not automatically receive a voucher. You will need to apply for one online.

Sport vouchers expire on 31 May each year.

The sport voucher scheme has closed for 2017/18.

Your first voucher for 2018/19 will be available at schools in late July. You can request new or replacement vouchers for the 2018/19 scheme from 6 August 2018.
