Sport for kids
Participating in sport and recreation from a young age has many benefits. Kids who engage in physical activity are more inclined to be happier, healthier and more active as adults. The city can help you find a sport that is right for your child.
Find a club
Belonging to a club provides more than just physical and mental health benefits. It is an opportunity to try new things, make friends and have fun.
Check out the Department of Sport and Recreation's Find a Club database, which has a great range of sports and nearly 3000 clubs listed.
KidSport makes it possible for Western Australian children to participate in community sport and recreation, regardless of their financial circumstances. The program provides eligible families with up to $200 annually for each of their children aged between five and eighteen years, to subsidise fees to join a sport and recreation club.
The City of Subiaco formed a partnership with the Department of Sport and Recreation (DSR) to provide the KidSport program, part of the department's larger $20 million Sport 4 All initiative, which aims to build stronger, healthier, happier and safer communities.
