South Australian parents can dance all the way to the bank now that the Marshall Government has added the popular pastime to the Sports Voucher Program.
The Liberal State Government recently doubled the value of the voucher to $100 to use towards the cost of sporting club fees or membership.
All forms of dance (cultural, artistic, street,) are now included in the program – which has recognised providers through more than a hundred sports and recreation activities throughout South Australia.
Dance has been added to the program because of its popularity and the physical and mental benefits it provides to children.
Sports Minister Corey Wingard urged parents and caregivers to take advantage of the vouchers by signing up their primary school-aged children to a recognised provider today.
“Taking $100 off your sports fees provides a welcome relief for families who can put those extra funds towards cost of living pressures without having to restrict their child’s lifestyle,” Minister Wingard said.
“Junior sports provide the starting blocks to a healthy, active life, for young South Australians and it is important they are given the opportunity to be a part of a club environment.”
The Sports Vouchers came into effect on January 1. To get your voucher, or find a recognised provider, go to www.sportsvouchers.sa.gov.au
