KidSport is a State Government funded program which makes it possible for Western Australian children to participate in community sport and recreation by offering financial assistance towards club fees. KidSport will allow eligible youth aged 5-18 years to apply for financial assistance of up to $150 per calendar year towards club fees. The fees will go directly to the registered KidSport clubs participating in the project through their local government.
