2017 Sports Vouchers Program: a State Government initiative administered by the Office for Recreation and Sport. It provides an opportunity for primary school aged children from Reception to Year 7 to receive up to a $50 discount on sports membership/registration fees. The purpose is to increase the number of children playing organised sport by reducing cost as a barrier to participation. All primary school aged children are eligible for one voucher per calendar year. More info: www.sportsvoucher.sa.gov.au
