The City of Rockingham has been successful in receiving funding from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries to administer the KidSport program.

KidSport makes it possible for eligible children to join a not-for-profit sport or recreation club, by contributing up to $150 towards club registration and other agreed fees.

To be eligible, children must:

  • live within the City of Rockingham
  • be aged 5-18 years
  • have a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card.

If you do not have a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card, but suffer from financial difficulty, please contact us to determine if you are eligible to receive funding.

Applicants can apply for KidSport funding to pay fees for a number of registered clubs. Funding is only available to cover fees of clubs that are registered for KidSport with the City of Rockingham.

The list of registered clubs is continually growing, so if the club you would like to join is not currently registered, please contact us on 9528 0333 to discuss if it is eligible to become a registered club.

How to apply


Equip Me 

Equip Me for Sport was originally developed in the City of Gosnells in partnership with the Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries and Fair Game Australia, and following its success, will kick-start in the City of Rockingham for the winter season in 2023. 

The purpose of the Equip Me for Sport Rockingham initiative is to assist low-income families in the City of Rockingham to access second-hand sporting equipment required to participate in local sports.

The Department of Local Government Sport and Cultural Industries will send promotional emails to KidSport recipients within the City of Rockingham, and to targeted community organisations concerning the Equip Me for Sport initiative in early March 2023. 

For more information on the Equip Me program and eligibility, please contact the City on 9528 0333 or customer@rockingham.wa.gov.au.
