Kids in Tweed are keeping active while their parents are keeping the cash, with each school-enrolled child now able to access two $100 Active Kids vouchers from July 1.
Member for Tweed Geoff Provest said one of the most popular programs for kids and parents has just been doubled to help kids stay active all year long.
“We all know kids in Tweed want to play sport and keep active with their friends and now parents can encourage them even more with another voucher to help spread the costs associated with participation,” said Mr Provest.
Since the Active Kids program was launched in 2018, more than one million vouchers have been redeemed and more than $100 million saved by NSW families.
From January – June there was an overall increase of 13 per cent in the number of Active Kids’ vouchers created, including a 17 per cent rise in vouchers created for girls following an influx of registrations for dance, gymnastics, tennis and swimming Active Kids providers.
These are incredible results and demonstrate why the NSW Government is investing an additional $40 million this year to expand the Active Kids program.
From today, parents of school-enrolled children can access a second $100 Active Kids voucher to use towards registration and membership fees for sport and active recreation each year. For further information visit sport.nsw.gov.au/activekids or call 13 13 02.
