More than 1200 sporting clubs have pre-registered via the Sports Voucher website and 400 have completed registration and are ready to be listed as a provider.
The Sports Voucher program for primary school-age children has been allocated $7.7 million over four years in the State Budget.
The $50 vouchers can be used for one annual payment of enrolment fees for sports that are played over at least a 10 week period at clubs meeting criteria including good governance, trained volunteers and a safe and supportive environment.
From next month, registered clubs and providers can redeem the payments online via a log-in one at a time or in clusters at any time until 31 December 2015.
Families of primary-school aged children will soon receive a letter through their school, or to their home if they are home schooled, with information on how the program works. Parents, guardians or caregivers are encouraged to go to the Sports Vouchers program website - at www.sportsvouchers.sa.gov.au - to search for a registered club in their area. Once a club is selected, children can be enrolled and receive a $50 discount off the fees.
Clubs wishing to register for the program also should go to Sports Vouchers program website.
