What is KidSport?
KidSport is an initiative by the Department of Sports and Recreation (DSR) aiming to make it possible for Western Australian Children to participate in community sport and recreation, no matter what their financial circumstance.
KidSport will allow eligible youth aged 5 – 18 years to apply for financial assistance towards their club fees. The fees go directly from the Shire to the registered KidSport clubs participating in the project. If your club is not currently participating, encourage them to.
All you need to do to register a club is follow the link to the DSR Website and Register. www.dsr.wa.gov.au/clubs. You will need to register for Clubs Online, once registered you can log in to edit your account, in this edit section you will see a button to register for KidSport. I would highly recommend using a club e-mail address to register for KidSport so that you do not have to continually change details, however you will need to log in annually to update your club fees.
