On top of that, the club will also receive $100 voucher from Sportscene to put towards purchasing new equipment.
 
All you have to do is nominate your team and tell Channel 7 in an email to newscq@seven.com.au  why your side should be Channel 7’s Team of the Month.
 
The competition is open to all sports and administrators.
 
Get in the Game - Get Started Vouchers
 
The next round (Round 9) of the Queensland Government’s Get Started Vouchers program is due to open on 25 January 2017

What is Get Started Vouchers?

Get Started Vouchers is an initiative to provide up to $150 to eligible children and young people, to help pay for sport or recreation club membership and/or participation fees through registered clubs.

 If the child/young person or their parent/carer/guardian holds a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, they can apply online as soon as the round opens. These children do not need to use the referral agent process.

Updates to the referral agent process

The department is changing the referral agent process to ensure that children and young people who can least afford the costs to participate are supported by Get Started Vouchers.  To ensure that the vouchers are going to those families most in need, a new referral agent process will be implemented from Round 9. 

The department now requires that eligible referral agents register with the department to be able to refer children and young people for a voucher.  Further details regarding referral agent criteria and eligibility requirements are on our website, along with fact sheets for parents and referral agents. Simply Google ‘Get Started Vouchers’ or go to the information here www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/getinthegame/getstarted/refer/.

A child/young person can be referred to the program by a registered referral agent if they have access to a Health Care Card/Pensioner Concession Card, where there are significant issues that prevent the parent/carer/guardian from applying.

These issues may include:

  • internet or computer access
  • computer illiteracy
  • Living in rural/remote areas with limited internet capability.

Further to this, referral agents may apply on behalf of a parent/carer/guardian where they are aware of the need for financial support to join their local sport or recreation club, and are assisting in their professional capacity.

For further information on the Get Started Vouchers program, please refer to the website - www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/getinthegame/getstarted/

 

If you have any specific questions about the program then please email the team at getstarted@npsr.qld.gov.au.
