Apply for an Active Kids Voucher

Eligible families are able to utilise the Active Kids Voucher to cover the cost of registering for basketball this season (up to $200).


Who can apply? To apply for a voucher, you must be:

  • the parent and/or legal guardian of an eligible child, and

  • the holder of an issued and valid Australian Government Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card with named dependants or

  • the parent and/or legal guardian of a child named on their own issued and valid Australian Government Health Care Card.

Who is eligible? To be eligible for a voucher your child/dependant must be:

  • aged 0 to 18 years

  • a resident in Victoria

  • named on a valid and issued Australian Government Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card or hold their own valid Australian Government Health Care Card (at the time of your application), and

  • named on a valid Australian Government Medicare Card (at the time of your application).

You can apply for more than one voucher if you have more than one eligible child (subject to voucher availability). You can apply for multiple children on the one application.

What costs are covered? Vouchers up to $200 can be used to pay for membership, registration, or participation fees at a registered Get Active Kids sport or active recreation club, association or program. You can find a registered activity provider when you apply or ask your local club if they have registered. If uniform and equipment are part of the membership or registration fee, a voucher can be used to pay for that uniform or equipment (for example, safety equipment, mouthguards).


Voucher amounts Each voucher is up to $200 for each child. When a voucher is presented to a registered activity provider, the provider will reduce the membership or registration fee by up to $200 at the time of registration. If the full membership fee is less than $200, the voucher can only be used for the lower amount. For example, if a membership costs $80, the voucher will cover the whole amount. The remaining value of the voucher cannot be used. If the membership fee is more than $200, the participant will need to pay the rest. For example, if the full membership costs $250, the voucher will cover $200, and the participant will pay $50.

How do I apply for a voucher? Vouchers are only available online. You can start the process here: https://www.getactive.vic.gov.au/vouchers/apply-for-vouchers/

Note: When you get to the ‘Activity Provided’ section select Basketball Victoria (Provider #2951096)

How do I use my voucher? When registering via PlayHQ for the upcoming Winter season you will need your voucher code. Each voucher has a code that is linked to Basketball Victoria, so it can’t be used anywhere else.

The voucher code represents payment (or part payment) of registration/membership fees. The voucher code must be entered into PlayHQ when registering.
