KIDSPORT: IMPORTANT UPDATE

In 2018 Sport and Recreation (WA) will be processing all KidSport applications for the Shire of Wickepin.

When the application is submitted online it will be sent directly through to the KidSport team who will determine if the child meets the eligibility criteria.

What does this mean for Parents/Carers?

The system remains the same.

You log on to the Kidsport portal and submit your child’s details.

If you are unable to access a computer, work with your club secretary to submit the claim.

Alternatively, visit the shire and we can help you.

What does this mean for clubs?

For all children who reside in the Shire of Wickepin you only need to enter the voucher code to validate the voucher.

An invoice does not need to be created for the local government.

Once the voucher has been validated an automatic payment will collect all validated vouchers and Sport and Recreation (WA) will pay your club directly.

Within this process an invoice will be created and can be accessed in the club portal.

To ensure you receive payment PLEASE ENSURE YOUR DETAILS IN THE SYSTEM ARE ACCURATE i.e. club name, bank details and ABN.

If you have club members who reside in other local governments please ensure you still create an invoice and send it to the local government.

If you are not sure how to validate a voucher please refer to the how to guide in the section ‘ Redeem a KidSport voucher”

If you are not sure how to create an invoice please refer to the how to guide in the section ‘ Create invoice for local government payment’

Contact the Shire and we can help you with this.

 

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.  As of 1 August 2017, uniform and equipment costs will no longer be eligible for KidSport funding.

Applicants listed on a valid Health Care or Pensioner Card can apply online via the DSR link below or submit a KidSport application form and a copy of the card to the Shire of Wickepin.       

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 you meet an exception you can apply for KidSport through a KidSport Financial Assessor.
