Government Assistance with Sport Club Fees
In October 2012 the Queensland Government announced funding of $18 million to support the Get in the Game initiative. Get Started is one of three programs within this initiative that aims to assist children and young people who can least afford to join a sport and recreation club.
Get Started’ Program
Eligible children and young people (from age 5 to 18) are provided with a voucher up to the value of $150 for the payment of membership and/or participation costs.
Vouchers are allocated on the first come, first served basis. Further information on the program and the referral agent process is available on the Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing website.
