Get Started this year

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

ROUND 9 Get Started vouch­ers be­came avail­able yes­ter­day through the State Gov­ern­ment.

Get Started Vouch­ers pro­vide up to $150 to young peo­ple who can’t af­ford to join a sport or re­cre­ation club, pro­vided they or their par­ent or guardian hold a valid Cen­tre­link Health Care Card or Pensioner Con­ces­sion Card with the child’s name on it.

If your child is el­i­gi­ble for a voucher, they can be used to help pay for mem­ber­ship and par­tic­i­pa­tion fees at par­tic­i­pat­ing clubs.

Vouch­ers are al­lo­cated quickly un­der a first-come, first-served ba­sis, so kids who get in quick are more likely to be ap­proved.

Al­lo­ca­tions will close when all vouch­ers are is­sued, or on March 29.

Most sport­ing clubs in the North Burnett area are el­i­gi­ble un­der the scheme.

Con­tact your club for more in­for­ma­tion.
