Participate in our events

Rainbow Club is more than a network of social swimming clubs for children with a disability. Every clas we bring together families, dedicated qualified teachers, and volunteers to create a safe, fun community for children with a disability to participate in a social and recreational activity. Rainbow Club encourages children with a disability to build their personal confidence and safely develop their independence.

Rainbow Club’s events build on this community atmosphere and showcase children with a disability participating in extraordinary events – swimming in the Malabar Magic Ocean Swim or representing their own Rainbow Club by competing at the Family Carnival. Our volunteers and swim teachers create a welcoming and safe environment for all our members and supporters to enjoy.

For our swim teachers and potential new teachers, Rainbow Club provides professional development training and opportunities to connect with other Clubs and teachers.

See you soon at a Rainbow Club event!
