We invite members to participate in our NEW Rainbow Speaks! program.
Members aged 12yrs+ are invited to join this one-day program run by Susie Bennett-Yeo from Special Olympics who will share skills and inspire confidence to speak in a public setting. If you are a motivated and enthusiastic swimmer wanting to be a spokesperson for your club this program is for you.
