KidSport enables Western Australian children to participate in community sport and recreation, no matter their financial circumstances.

Eligible youth aged 5–18 years can apply for financial assistance to contribute towards club fees.

Fees will go directly to the registered KidSport clubs through their participating local government.

While the primary objective of KidSport is to ensure all Western Australian children can participate in sport and recreation clubs, its secondary objective is to engage these children and their families in the community.

The deadline for Clubs to register to be a part of KidSport has now been extended to 31 March annually.

Clubs must register and update their details online. Parents can apply online for Kidsport Vouchers.  

Contact your local sporting club, or Shire of Dandaragan Club Development Officer Tony O'Gorman at or 9652 0800, for more information.
