With only one week to go until the opening of Round 1 of Get Started now is the time to get your sport or recreation organisation registered! Vouchers for eligible children and young people will be available from 15 January 2013.

Get Started is one of three funding programs that comprise the Queensland Government’s Get in the Game initiative to support sport and recreation at the grassroots level. Get Started will assist children and young people who can least afford or otherwise may benefit from joining a sport or recreation club. Eligible children and young people can apply online for a voucher valued up to $150 online, which can be redeemed at a sport or recreation club registered with the Program.

To be able to accept the voucher for registrations/memberships from an eligible person your organisation MUST BE REGISTERED. If your organisation provides activities for children from 5 and under 18 years of age make sure you get online now and find out how to register your club. (Please note: other organisational eligibility criteria applies).

For more information on the program please phone the Rockhampton Sport and Recreation Services Office on 4938 4805.
