Play it On is a social enterprise that provides funding to assist children from families that are financially challenged, to participate in their chosen sport.
Australian children have the opportunity to play sport regardless of their financial situation
Unfortunately, in Australia, some families struggle to find the money to pay for their kids sporting club fees. At Play it On we don’t think any kids should have to miss out and we believe the Play it On model will help to address this.
We collect unwanted sports gear, rejuvenate it and sell it online, the profits raised provide a subsidy for the sporting club fees of eligible children.
Half the amount of kids in lower socio-economic areas participate in sport compared to participation rates of kids in other areas and this is primarily due to finances.
We are also grateful to the sports associations, clubs, teams, businesses, and shops who have donated sports gear, end-of-run clothes, and footwear for Play it On to sell.
