Social swimming club
for children with a disability
Inspiring events for
people of all abilities
make Rainbow Club great
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.”
Ethan & Isaac are enjoying their first lesson at Narellan Rainbow Club and loving every minute, not wanting to get out of the pool at the end of their lesson.
After 11 wonderful years of staging the Malabar Magic, Mother Nature intervened last weekend and forced us to cancel. Please consider making a donation equal to the entrance fee ($50) so that Rainbow Club can continue to share the joy of swimming by helping children with a disability learn to swim.
Rainbow Club opened our 26th club at Narellan on 16th February 2020.
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.
Love what we do?
Rainbow Club appreciates the donations which enable us to increase our capacity so children with a disability can receive regular swimming lessons.
