The sports voucher program is an initiative administered by Flinders University Sport & Fitness. The program provides an opportunity for new Flinders University students to receive up to a $50 discount on sports membership fees. The purpose of this program is to increase student participation at club level by reducing cost barriers for students and help clubs meet their affiliation criteria.
Who is eligible?
All enrolled Flinders University students in either semester 1 or semester 2 during the period of (1 x voucher per student).
All sports clubs affiliated with Flinders University Sport & Fitness clubs in 2023.
How does it work?
Students will be able to collect a physical sports voucher through a range of different promotional events and campaigns run by FUSF throughout the year (O’week, connect week, wellbeing week).
Clubs can also encourage student club members to collect a voucher from FUSF reception.
Each student will need to fill out their personal information on the voucher.
Student must then present the voucher to a club member (Coach / Administrator / President).
Club member will collect the voucher and record the students information and then offer those student an appropriate discount on their fees once it has been confrimed by FUSF that they are current students in 2023 and are financial members (Paid their fees) to the club and have committed to the club for a full season or semester to meet the value of the voucher.
Once a club has collected a voucher, you can fill out the students details onto the online form here: https://form.jotform.com/230317686178059 and then you must the either submit a scanned copy of the voucher to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can just dropp of the physical voucher to FUSF reception.
This will allow FUSF to keep a live track of how many vouchers have been collected and submitted by clubs as FUSF have only allocated a certain amount of funding towards the program this year. Once the funding allocation has been met via the capped number of vouchers submitted (First in first served), clubs will be notified that the semester 1 or semester 2 collection period is closed and that FUSF will not be accepting any more vouchers for the period from that point. We have allocated a certain amount of funding for semester 1 & semester 2 to to cater for seasonal sports to ensure they don’t miss out.
Once the collection period for each semester has closed, at the end of the 2 x periods. FUSF will proceed to check each students eligibility student services and provide each club a list of students that have qualified for the funding. Once this has been confirmed FUSF will make payment via a bank transfer to each participating club.
Please note: If a clubs annual fees do not meet the value of $50 but instead offer a separate fee for drop in session. It is then up to the club to keep attendance/financial records to prove that the students has attended enough session to meet the value of $50
