The NSW Government is helping kids get active with the new Active Kids program. Budokan’s application to become a provider under this program is now approved.Parents, guardians and carers can apply for a voucher valued up to $100 per calendar year for each school-enrolled child. Budokan is now in a position to be able to accept these vouchers. Please note that the vouchers are not retrospective and can be used only once at any time of the year. To be an eligible child, you must be a NSW resident, aged between 4.5 and 18 years, and enrolled in school (from Kindergarten to Year 12, including those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW). The voucher may be used with an approved activity provider (e.g. Budokan Judo Club or Judo NSW) for registration, participation and membership costs for sport, fitness and active recreation activities. This also means that the voucher can be used to pay your annual Judo NSW registration via http://www.judonsw.com.au/ (For New members – “Join a Club”; For existing or Temporary members – “Renew”). You will notice 2 new options in Judo NSW registrations:“Junior Membership (NSW Active Kids Voucher System” (No Fee, because the voucher covers the $90 Junior Fee)“Senior Membership (NSW Active Kids Voucher System” $30 (with the $100 voucher adding up to the $130 fee) If you are paying for club training and the cost is over the $100, you will need to pay the difference to the club. Remember, you can only use the voucher once per year. If you need any issues clarified on this program, please talk to Rob.
