2018 registration information and the Active Kids Rebate Program
Junior Registration (under 18 and below) will likely open in early January 2018 but payment will not be possible until after January 31st 2018 to allow you to take advantage of the Active Kids Rebate Program (see below)
Senior Registrations will open as normal in early January 2018
Junior Registration and the Active Kids Rebate Program
For the 2018 season most players under 18 will be entitled to the new Government rebate of $100 towards their season registration subject to the conditions of the Active Kids Rebate Program. This means your Epping Football Club 2018 registration fees will likely be $100 cheaper !!
The Program is an initiative of the NSW Government to get kids moving and active. Epping FC has registered to be a part of the Rebate Program. This is not means tested. All children aged 4.5 to 18 years old, enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12, and residing in NSW will be eligible for a voucher. This includes students who are home- schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW or equivalent.
Players / parents need to apply for the rebate and the NSW Government will reimburse the club for that rebate amount through your registration process and the fees you pay to the club will reduce accordingly during the registration process.
Parents will be able to claim up to $100 per school child, per calendar year, as a voucher to reduce the cost of sport and fitness registration from the NSW government.
The rebate is only available after January 31st 2018 – Players who want to claim the rebate, cannot register before January 31st 2018.
We will likely delay opening our Junior player registration to ensure all players can claim the rebate through their football registration. More detail and full club registration details will be updated on this site soon.
Information for Parents about the new rebate
To obtain the voucher (a unique code), parents/guardians will need to access the Service NSW website after January 31st 2018, log into their existing account or create one, and register each of their eligible children using their Medicare Card.
Once you register, you will receive a unique voucher code for each child (on the screen and via email).
At the time of registering a player on MyFootballClub in early 2018 parents select the $100 discount and input the voucher code number in the field provided.
Only one voucher is available per child and it can only be used once with one provider i.e. it cannot be split between multiple clubs or activity registrations.
It is the parents responsibility to register and obtain rebate code.

Program Recipient Guidelines
We expect the process for senior registrations (over 18) who are not entitled to a rebate will open in early January as normal. More detail and full club registration details will be updated on this site soon.
