Changes to KidSport Program in 2017

As you may be aware the department will be implementing some changes to the KidSport program for 2017.


  1. Applicants listed on a valid Health Care or Pensioner Concession card should now:
    • Apply online at the Department of Sport and recreation website OR
    • Submit a KidSport application form and a copy of the card to their local government.


  1. KidSport no longer has referral agents.
    • Applicants NOT listed on a valid concession card need to meet one of the new KidSport Financial Exceptions listed on the DSR website.
    • If families meet an exception they can apply for KidSport through a KidSport Financial Assessor.


This information will be circulated to all participating local governments, clubs and previous applicants. Please assist to promote the attached flyer/image on your website, newsletters or face book page as relevant.
