Get in the Game - Government Rebate

The Queensland State Government has kicked off a program called "Get in the Game," this program will increase the amount of involvement by children in sport throughout Australia. 

"A parent, carer or guardian of an eligible child or young person will be able to apply online for a voucher under the first round of the program from 15 January 2013. When applying for a voucher, the following details will be required:

  • name, age and date of birth of the child or young person
  • name, address, telephone number and email address of the parent, carer or guardian
  • a valid Centrelink Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card number, or if the child or young person is being referred, the contact details of two referral agents.

If a child is eligible for Get Started, they are not guaranteed a voucher. The funding will be distributed in two rounds each year on a first come, first served basis. Once the allocation for each round is exhausted, the program will close and no further vouchers will be offered for that round." 

Round 1 of the Voucher applications commence on 15th January 2013, closing on the 15th April 2013, if you are going to apply you will need to apply for Round 1. 

If you are having trouble applying for these vouchers, or are wanting help applying please contact Donna Gorman on 0400683418.
