Kidsport

KidSport encourages parents with eligible Western Australian children aged 5-18 years to participate in community sport and recreation activities by offering them financial assistance towards club fees (this does not cover uniform or equipment).

KidSport is available online for parents to register their eligibility. Parents will be required to submit an online KidSport application form, also to provide a copy of their valid Health Care or Pensioner Concession card.

KidSport no longer has referral agents, applicants without a valid concession card need to meet one of the new Financial Expectations. If you meet a financial expectation, you can apply for KidSport through the KidSport Financial Assessor.

Please follow the link to find all relevant documents required to complete your application.

For more information, please contact ALAC's Customer Service Team on (08) 6820 3400.
