What is the SA Sports Vouchers program?
The Sports Vouchers program is a Government of South Australia initiative administered by the Office for Recreation and Sport. The program provides an opportunity for primary school aged children from Reception to Year 7 to receive up to a $100 discount on sports membership/registration fees. The purpose is to increase the number of children playing organised sport by reducing cost as a barrier to participate in sport.
NOTE: If a program cost is below $100, there will not be any remaining funds on the voucher once used (i.e. if you use a voucher for a program that is $75, then you will not receive $25 back/there will not be $25 remaining on the voucher).
What can the $100 be used for?
The $100 can be used towards membership fees for your Cricket Blast or Junior Cricket sports program. The discount cannot be used for equipment purchase or a one-off ‘come and try’ type event.
Who is eligible for the program?
All South Australian primary school aged children, meaning if the child is attending or is eligible to attend primary school. Remember it is one voucher for every primary school aged child per calendar year.

Can the Sports Voucher be split between two providers?
