Junior League players are encouraged to take advantage of the NSW Government's Active Kids Rebate Program, with a $100 voucher provided for registration and participation costs.
The initiative, offered to parents and guardians of school-enrolled children, aims to reduce the barriers to participation and help change the physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW. It comes as research suggests that the majority of children and adolescents in NSW are not meeting the daily recommended levels of physical activity - and more than one in five NSW children are overweight or obese.
Every family in NSW with a child enrolled in school from Kindergarten to year 12 will be eligible for the Active Kids Rebate, with the Office of Sport to facilitate the provision of vouchers from 31 January 2018. It is hoped that the initiative will encourage more children to try Junior League in 2018.
