With the summer season around the corner, clubs are reminded of the following;
Please login to the KidSport system and update all Club registration costs, banking and ABN details and contacts. It is with this information that the program is administered with. For those clubs who require their access details to be re-issued, please e-mail KidSport at: Kidsport@dsr.wa.gov.au noting your Club name
Once an application has been processed, the parent is issued with the voucher notification from Kidsport@dlgsc.wa.gov.au; they are required to pass this voucher onto you. An applicant is not considered approved until they appear as approved in the list of approved applicants within the system.
The Club is required to redeem the voucher before creating the invoice within the KidSport system. Club created invoices will not be accepted by the City.
As advised by the Department of Sport and Recreation, Local Government is not able to provide codes direct to the Club. You will need to obtain this off the parent.
The City’s KidSport page contains the “How to Guide” that provides a step-by-step guide for clubs in how to operate the KidSport system.
For any further questions, please contact the City’s Club Development Officer by email at: email@example.com or by phone on 9405 5668.
Club Health Check
The Australian Sports Commission's (ASC) Club Health Check has been formed as a tool to assist State Sporting Organisations and their clubs with their overall management, governance and planning both at a strategic and an operational level. The Club Health Check focuses questions on the key areas that drive clubs: how clubs set—and reach—targets considered important to running a successful club. The report provided at the completion of the survey gives clubs a clear picture of whether their operations and activities are on target to achieve their goals.
It is recommended that up to 3 members of the committee complete the online Health Check.
DLGSC Community Participation Funding
Community Participation Funding (CPF) is available year-round for initiatives from $1000 to $5000 that aim to increase the involvement of low participation groups in sport and active recreation. The low participation groups targeted through this scheme include culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) groups, Aboriginal communities, people with disability, disengaged youth, seniors etc.
Please contact the Community Participation Funding Project Officer at email: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your project first.
Free Smoothie Bike Hire

We’re starting a Clean Up
Consumer Protection is compiling a list of clubs and associations that are no longer operating or have been dormant for at least 12 months. If you were a member of a club or group that you know no longer operates, please let Consumer Protection know by completing the online form or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Consumer Protection will be making the defunct associations list public in the future and it is likely that steps will then be taken to cancel the incorporation of any groups confirmed as inactive. Registered clubs and associations are being urged to ensure they lodge their information statement. The information statement confirms that an association is active, eligible to be incorporated and has held its Annual General Meeting.
Make sure to lodge your information statement with AssociationsOnline so there is no doubt that your association is alive and well.
