Applying for KidSport online

This online application process is only available to applicants applying for KidSport who have a Health Care or Pensioner Concession Card.

If you believe you are experiencing unforeseen significant financial hardship, you can still submit a hard copy KidSport application to your local government through a KidSport Financial Assessor.

Prior to completing the KidSport online application process below, please ensure you have an electronic copy of your Health Care / Pensioner Concession Card (scanned or photographed copy is fine). The file can then be uploaded onto the online form in any of the following formats – .doc,.docx,.pdf,.png,.jpg,.jpeg (Max: 5 MB).

 

 

  1. Go to the Department of Sport and Recreation (DSR) homepage and click on the KidSport link on the right hand side – www.dsr.wa.gov.au.
  2. On the KidSport homepage, click ‘Apply online’ link in the right panel, to open online form.
  3. At the top of the page, make sure you mark whether you have received KidSport before.
  4. Complete each field in the online form, including the details of the child, parent/guardian, club and the amount being requested for KidSport. Please note:
  • It is important that all details are entered accurately, particularly the first name, last name, suburb and date of birth of the child.
  • After selecting the club, the membership fee structures provided by the club will appear. Based on the figures listed, you can then indicate the amount you are requesting for KidSport, up to $200. This amount can be lower than the amount listed, per age group, as you can always apply for a second sport later in the year.
  1. Upload the electronic copy of your Health Care or Pensioner Concession Card.
  2. Once all information has been entered, please scroll up and re-check all details have been entered correctly. Once the form has been checked, click the ‘submit’ button.
  3. A new page will appear confirming that your KidSport application has been submitted.
  4. An automated confirmation of application will also be sent through to the email address that you provided in the form. If you do not receive this email after a few hours, please contact your local government.
  5. The Local Government (Council) in which you reside will now assess the application and inform you, via email, if it has been approved or rejected.

How to redeem KidSport vouchers

All applicants approved by their local government are provided with a unique voucher code, which the system will automatically email to the applicant. This code must then be provided to the club so that the applicant can receive KidSport support. It is therefore the applicant’s responsibility to provide a correct/complete email address

 

  1. Once a code is received, the club logs into their account to redeem the code via the club homepage
  2. On the club home page, scroll down to the table titled ‘KidSport approved clubs’
  3. Click on the pencil icon, to the left of the club name, to edit and redeem the voucher
  4. A list of local government-approved applicants are listed in the top box titled ‘approved vouchers’. These applicants are awaiting the code to be validated/redeemed by the club
  5. To select a child, that you have the unique code for, click on the pencil to the left
  6. A new screen will open and there will be a ‘voucher code’ box that will allow you to type in the unique code provided to the applicant by the local government. The 6 digit code will have a combination of letters and numbers
  7. Click the ‘redeem voucher’ button
  8. The applicant’s details will then move from the ‘approved vouchers’ box to the next one called ‘validated vouchers’
  9. Invoices can now be generated by the club, for the relevant local government/s, now that the vouchers have been redeemed (N.B. do not proceed with the ‘how to create an invoice for a local government’ step, until all voucher codes received so far, have been validated)

  2. Scroll down to the ‘invoices’ header, click on ‘add new’
  3. This opens up a ‘validated vouchers to invoice’ page. Select your club FIRST from the drop-down box and then the local government/s you wish to invoice
  4. Click on ‘create invoice’. The invoice will be displayed in the ‘invoices’ table, back on the ‘KidSport vouchers’ page (N.B. When selecting your club from the drop-down box in step 3, you will notice that multiple local governments may be listed. If so, repeat steps 3 and 4)
