Residents Sports and Recreation KidSport
The State Government has committed $20 million towards the Sport4All initiative. Sport4All will run over four years and aims to increase participation in community sport and recreation throughout Western Australia. Part of Sport4All is the KidSport grant program.
KidSport is to be implemented by the City of Greater Geraldton in partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation that will make it possible for junior sporting participants within the City to engage in sport and recreation, no matter their financial circumstances.
KidSport will allow eligible youth aged 5-18 years to apply for financial assistance that will contribute up to $200 to go towards club fees.
