The Shire of Wagin has been successful in receiving funding from the Department of Sport and Recreation to administer the KidSport program.

KidSport makes it possible for eligible children to join a not-for-profit sport or recreation club, by contributing up to $200 towards paying club registration and other agreed fees.

To be eligible children must;

  • Live within the Shire of Wagin
  • Be aged 5 - 18 years
  • Have a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card

If you do not have a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card, but suffer from financial difficulty you may visit a KidSport referral agent to determine if you are eligible to receive funding.

Applicants can apply for KidSport funding to pay fees for a number of registered clubs. Funding is only available to cover fees of clubs that are registered for KidSport with the Shire of Wagin. The list of registered clubs is continually growing, if the club you would like to join is not currently registered, please contact our Community Liaison Officer on 98611177 to discuss if it is eligible to become a registered club.

It is preferred that children applying for Kidsport funding register with clubs within the Shire of Wagin, but it is not essential.
