Mid North Coast District Golf Association

Active Kids Rebate Program

December 07, 2017 at 9:15 PM

From 31st January 2018, parents will be able to claim up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher to assist in meeting the cost of sport registration or membership fees for after-school, weekend and structured fitness or physical activity.

The nominated activities include: traditional sports such as golf, netball, football or basketball; swimming classes or lessons; as well as other fitness or physical activities such as gymnastics or athletics.

This is a great opportunity for you to grow your junior membership numbers.

  • · Golf Clubs will need to register to be providers with the NSW Office of Sport, with Golf NSW facilitating the process.
  • · Parents will register with the Office of Sport to obtain a voucher for their child – it is a generic voucher, not specific to a Club or a sport.
  • · Parents then visit their local Golf Club and provide the voucher as payment or part payment for a 12 month Club membership.
  • · The voucher is accepted as payment by the Club who must then submit the voucher in order to be reimbursed. The redemption of the voucher is an online process where the Club enters a voucher number and a surname that is validated at the time of redemption. The voucher can be used for a renewing membership or a new membership.
  • · Eligible children MUST:
    • Live in NSW
    • Be enrolled at school, or TAFE (includes home schooling)
  • · Clubs (providers) MUST be located in NSW (ACT clubs are not eligible)

NSW Golf Clubs who would like to be involved need to:

  • o Complete the online registration at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/G5CV2X3
  • o Provide a junior membership offering valued at a minimum of $100. Clubs with a current junior membership offering less than $100 should consider including items like a shirt, hat, gloves, tees or balls etc to take the total cost of membership up to $100.

During December, the Club contact who is nominated in the online registration will receive an email from the Office of Sport which includes instructions for the final steps in the registration process.

Golf NSW will then perform a bulk upload of all participating Clubs into the Office of Sport portal. The online registration must be completed by midnight Wednesday 8th November 2017.

Clubs who do not register with Golf NSW by 8th November will still be able to take part but they will have to register directly with the Office of Sport after 31st January 2018.
