Sports Vouchers for all Primary School Aged Athletes

The Sports Vouchers program is an initiative from the Government of South Australia that provides an opportunity for primary school aged children (born 2006 to 2014) to receive a $100 discount on sports club membership/registration fees. The purpose is to increase the number of children playing organised sport by reducing cost as a barrier to participate.

To claim the $100 discount for your child’s Southern Athletic Club membership fee you should register under the “Junior Athlete with Sports Voucher” option then download a sports voucher, fill in your details and hand it back to Trish or Matt.

Please note that only one voucher can be used per child each calendar year.
