Kristy Crump is the mother of five sports-loving children between the ages of six and 13-years-old.
The children's sporting pursuits are so important to the family the cost will always be part of their annual budget, but getting a bit of help certainly is welcome.
The Crump children are part of the more than 1000 in the Orange electorate who have taken up the offer of a second $100 Active Kids voucher since they were made available on July 1.
Mrs Crump said many families at CYMS Soccer Club, Orange Cycle Club and PCYC Gymnastics - where her children are enrolled - had taken advantage of the offer too.
"When you're kids are playing multiple sports it does get expensive," she said.
"The older boys are looking at doing mountain biking on Thursdays on top of their cycling so we'll use it to pay for that."
I think anything to get children out and doing something is a worthwhile subsidyKristy Crump
The NSW government invested an extra $40 million to expand the program to two vouchers this year, with the promise of another two vouchers available next year.
Mrs Crump said she thinks it's money well spent.
"I'm an early-childhood teacher and I think anything to get children out and doing something is a worthwhile subsidy," she said.
Julie Gibson has four children between the ages of 11 and 17-years-old.
She said with all four involved in either netball of AFL with the Orange Tigers having $100 off the $130 cost is a huge help.
"It just gives parents more options," she said. "Instead of saying 'no you can't do that' we can go ahead and sign them up."
Since the initiative was extended more than 3520 second vouchers have been taken up in the Central West and Orana alone.
The NSW Acting Chief Executive for the Office of Sport, Karen Jones said they'd been pleased with the number of second vouchers downloaded for Active Kids since 1 July.
"As the summer sports start to open their registrations, we expect to see another big lift in downloads," she said.
"We want to remind families that you can still download your first voucher, and both vouchers are able to be used until 31 December."
Since the Active Kids program was launched in 2018, more than one million vouchers have been redeemed and more than $100 million saved by NSW families, the government reports.
Minister for Sport John Sidoti said it was a big win for NSW when more kids could participate in sport because of the government's drive to take down the barriers to expensive registration costs.
