The Shire of Northampton has been successful in receiving funding from the Department of Sport and Recreation 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 paying club registration and other agreed fees.

To be eligible children must;
