KidSport
The Shire of Bridgetown-Greenbushes 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 Bridgetown-Greenbushes
• 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 Bridgetown-Greenbushes. The list of registered clubs is continually growing, if the club you would like to join is not currently registered, please contact the Bridgetown-Greenbushes Recreation Centre on 9761 2966 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 Bridgetown-Greenbushes, but this is not essential.
