How to Apply?

  • Currently KidSport can be applied for online.

    KidSport applications are assessed by the local government in which the child resides. If an application is approved, the parents will receive a code (unique to the application) via email. The code needs to be provided to the club so that the approved amount can be deducted from the registration fees.
