Active Kids Voucher

Can I use multiple Active Kids Vouchers for a Season?

Parents/carers can only claim one Active Kids Voucher per eligible activity. The second voucher has to be redeemed for another season

Can I use Active Kids Vouchers for Holiday Camps?

Unfortunately not. Active Kids Vouchers can only be claimed for activities that are 8 weeks or longer.

Can I claim an Active Kids Voucher from last year?

Active Kids Vouchers are only valid for one calendar year. You cannot claim an unused Active Kids Voucher from a previous year on the current year.

I forgot to enter the Active Kids Voucher at the time of registration. How can I claim it?

We ask parents of new single players and players in our clubs to obtain Active Kids Voucher's details prior to their registration with EBL so they can include the voucher number in the registration and get the $100 deducted from the registration cost automatically. If you would like to reedem the voucher after the registration was submitted, please send an email to info@eastsbl.com.au with your child's name (as recorded with Service NSW), date of birth, and the 16-digit Active Kids Voucher and we can process the Voucher for you. This will incur a $10 admin fee.


Do you offer trials?

Most of the time we are able to offer a trial session. The only instance where we cannot offer trials is if the session is full. Please email us to book a trial.

We had a trial and my kid loved it. What do I do now?

We will follow up with you after the trial, but if you are sure that your child wants to join just feel free to register him for the program/comp that he/she would like to join.
