KidSport enables eligible Western Australian children aged 5-18 years to participate in community sport and recreation by offering them financial assistance towards club fees.

KidSport applications are now available online if you hold a valid Health Care or Pensioner Concession card. Hard copy applications are still available and can be submitted to your Local Government.

  • Applicant's primary place of residence must be in the local government area they are applying to.

What else?

  • Funding will cover the cost of fees to join the nominated sport or recreation club (this may include other club-related costs, such as equipment and uniform as identified by the club and approved by the local government).
  • Maximum of up to $200 per child per calendar year.
  • Fees are only for the nominated registered season.
  • No retrospective fees will be paid.
  • No limitation to the number of applications per family as long as the eligibility criteria for each child is met.
