KidSport Grants Program

The Shire of Tammin is delighted to be involved in the KidSport grants program in partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation. KidSport makes it possible for all children within the Shire to participate in community sport and recreation. This program allows eligible youth aged 5 – 18 years to apply for financial assistance towards club fees.

Why sporting and recreation clubs are important: 

  • Active kids learn better.
  • Kids who participate in sport and recreation are physically and mentally healthier.
  • Clubs bring people and communities together.
  • It’s fun!
  • Clubs are a great place to meet lifelong friends.
  • Some of the best conversations you will ever have with your kids will be in the car to and from training, to and from the game.
  • Learn positive values.
  • Kids who join clubs feel part of the community and develop a sense of pride in that community.
