KidSport enables Western Australian youth to participate in community sport and recreation, no matter their financial circumstances

Eligible youth aged 5 to 18 years can apply for financial assistance to contribute towards club fees, up to $200 per calendar year.

The fees will go directly to the sporting club through the City of Vincent.

Maximum of up to $200 per child per calendar year, you can use this to join more than one club if you like
Fees are only for the nominated registered season
