KidSport Program

KidSport Program Update
Sport and Recreation (WA) have reviewed the KidSport program and would like to share some changes that will be phased in from 1 January 2018.

These changes are to help ensure the growing number of eligible children continue to have the opportunity to be involved in a sporting club.

What you need to know
Eligible Funding
On 1 January 2018, the total funding available per KidSport child in a calendar year will decrease to $150.

There has been no change to who is eligible for KidSport. All Western Australian children aged 5 to 18 with a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card are eligible for KidSport.
