The program provides eligible children and young people aged 5 up to 18 who can least afford to join a sport or recreation club with a voucher valued at up to $150 for membership and/or registration fees. It should be noted that vouchers are issued on a first come, first serve basis; therefore there is no guarantee that a child or young/person will obtain a voucher.
Over 3500 clubs have registered for the program. Clubs can apply for Get Started registration at any time. Registration is valid for the entire program period so there is no need to register for each round.
Fact sheets for clubs, parents/guardians/carers and referral agents can be viewed at www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/funding/getinthegame/getstarted.html. The factsheets provide an overview of the eligibility criteria and application process.
