Mohamed(17) has always loved being in the water and could easily spend up to 8 hours in there, if not more. He first commenced swimming lessons when he was roughly 8 years with a provider, before recommencing with another provider at 12 years. Unfortunately, a lack of swimming instructors experienced in disabilities plus an incredibly long waiting list, meant that Mohamed was without an instructor for a very long time.

“When I contacted Rainbow Club, I was advised about another program which was being offered for participants with disabilities aged 17 -25 years in the Sutherland Shire. I contacted Carla Barnes, Program Manager for My Active Moves and have not looked back.

The swimming instructors are caring, respectful and devote the entire lesson to the participant, for maximum benefit. Mohamed thoroughly enjoys his Sunday sessions and he particularly loves the ‘aqua aerobics’ session. I look forward to Mohamed continuing with the program and achieving his goals” – Mohamed’s Mother
