Kids get a kick from vouchers
KidSport vouchers will again be available this year to help children participate in local sporting clubs, with the City of Kwinana hosting a two-day event to promote summer sports and raise awareness of the vouchers.
Last financial year, 631 children were able to use the vouchers and a second voucher has been made available this financial year until December, to utilise funds unspent in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The City, alongside Kwinana Marketplace, will host a Summer Sports Expo Weekend planned for August 28 and 29.
Mayor Carol Adams said the State Government’s $150 vouchers meant children were able to participate in local sporting clubs.
Swim schools are also included in KidSport for the first time this year, which Cr Adams said she welcomed.
“We are thrilled the State Government included swim schools in the KidSport as of January and want more parents to be aware of this opportunity,” she said.
“We have 1200 children enrolled in swimming at the Kwinana Recquatic at the moment, and we expect to see a greater uptake of vouchers by families so their children can learn to be confident and safe in the water.”
Mayor Adams said the Summer Sports Expo Weekend was a great event to find out more about local clubs.
