Important information about NSW Active Kids voucher and registering to play with Lugarno FC

The NSW Government will provide a $100 voucher to parents/guardians of school enrolled children. The $100 voucher can be used for registration and participation costs for sport and fitness activities. The initiative aims to reduce barriers to participation and help change the physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW.

Every child (4.5 – 18 years’ old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher. This includes those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW. There will be no limits on the number of applications per family, as long as every child is enrolled in school.

If you are planning to use the NSW Active Kids Voucher with LFC, then for a streamlined and hassle free registration process, LFC recommends that parents/guardians delay registration until they have the Active Kids Voucher which you can register for from January 31 2018.

If you are NOT planning to use the NSW Active Kids Voucher with LFC, then proceed to the normal registration process as per instructions following. Please do not apply the (minus) -$100 package during the registration process as its only applicable when using the Active Kids voucher
