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.”
The Board of Rainbow Club has decided it is in the best interests of members, teachers and staff to cut short Term 1 after 6 weeks. Unfortunately, Rainbow Clubs will not be operating until further notice.
Kylan was a member at our Orange Rainbow Club from 2016 and only just recently has finished his time with Rainbow Club. His parents were so thrilled with all he has learned at Rainbow Club that they wanted to thank everyone.
Rainbow Club will continue to operate as normal this weekend. The Rainbow Club Board and Management are monitoring the rapidly changing situation with regard to COVID-19 and are following all guidelines issued by NSW Health.
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.
