Active Kids Voucher

From 1st January 2023, the NSW Government will continue a scheme aimed at encouraging kids to be fit and healthy and lessen the financial burden on families – called the Active Kids Rebate.


Families can receive a $100 per child (up to 18 y ears of age) rebate for kids to play a registered competitive sport by registering  for a voucher code via the Service NSW Portal to receive $100 off their child’s registration, where both the child and the sport are approved. This code can then be entered into the PlayFootball portal when the parent registers their child and they will receive $100 off their registration. Please apply for the voucher before registering to avoid further paperwork and delays in the refund.

Registration payment and approval
  • Payment must be made online at the time of registration. Registrations will not be approved until payment has been received.

  • Mastercard and Visa are accepted.

  • Registration is NOT complete until payment has been received and the registrar has approved the registration.

  • Registration will initially be approved by the club, however approval by the MWFA is still required before a member can play.


Age Group Guidelines
  • Before registering it is important that you understand which age group the player is eligible to play in.

  • The 2023 Age Group Table shows how a year of birth corresponds to the player age groups available. Examples might make this clearer:
    - For juniors: to play in the Under 7 comp, a player must be turning 7 any time in the calendar year. They are not eligible for the Under 6 competition even if they don't turn 7 until 31.Dec.
    - For seniors: to play in the Over 35 comp, a player must be 36 or older on 1.Jan this year.

  • Players are able to play up an age group (eg. U7-eligible playing in U8) after consultation with the appropriate age coordinator. Players wishing to play more than 2 years above their age must apply to the MWFA through the club secretary for permission.

Additional Requirements
  • There are no additional requirements for players from U6 to U9.

  • Any U10 or U11 player that is new to the MWFA will need to provide a Proof of Age document (birth certificate or passport) and complete an 2023 Application to Register

  • Any U11 player that may occasionally be asked to play in U12 (e.g. to help out when players are absent) will need to comply with the requirements for an U12 player including providing a Proof of Age document and upload a photo to PlayFootball.

  • Any player who did not play for the MWFA in 2021 must complete the 2023 Application to Register

  • Please DO NOT take a photograph of a printed photograph – just photograph the player!
