You may be eligible for up to $200 to put towards the cost associated with your child’s swimming lessons.

To be eligible, children must be Victorian residents, aged 18 and under and named on a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, as well as Medicare card.

Additionally, special consideration also applies for children residing in care services as well as temporary or provisional visa holders, undocumented migrants or international students.

Please refer to the Program Guidelines for more information. The Get Active Kids Voucher Program helps eligible families get their kids involved in organised sport and active recreation activities by providing financial support for the cost of membership and registration fees.

Eligible children may be able to receive up to $200 each. Sporting pursuits, swimming lessons and outdoor active recreation programs are examples of eligible activities under the Program.

The Program encourages kids to re-engage or to participate for the first time in new activities by reducing the cost of participation which can be a significant barrier to participation.

You can claim one voucher per eligible child. To find out if you are eligible, how to apply, what costs are covered and more, visit
