Rainbow Club is a network of social swimming clubs for children with a disability. With NDIS Provider status and our unique Swim the Rainbow program, Rainbow Club offers a fun and safe community for children with a disability to have individualised swimming lessons catered to their needs.
Celebrating 50 years
50 years ago a chance encounter inspired the creation of Rainbow Club. In 1969, Ron Siddons, Beach Inspector and man of action, saw a father trying to enjoy the water with his disabled son. The child was placed in an inner tube of a car tyre for floatation. Ron said, “The poor little chap kept going under. I wondered why someone hadn’t tried to design a costume for these kiddies and I decided to do something about it.”
Welcome Megan Toole who is taking on the Social Coordinator role at Campbelltown Rainbow Club. She will be starting when the club reopens.

During National Volunteer Week Rainbow Club celebrated by highlighting 8 of our amazing volunteers on our website and social media. We then followed with a contest on Facebook for the post with the most engagement to win a prize. Kelly Ford was the clear winner. Congratulations Kelly!
At Rainbow Club we understand children with a disability. We encourage each child to Swim the Rainbow at their own pace, to best of their ability.
Our Club members each have a unique story. Read their shared experiences and discover the Rainbow Club community.
