It’s all happening at Rainbow Club
Rainbow Club is more than a network of social swimming clubs for children with a disability. Every lesson 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 event calendar builds on this community atmosphere and showcases children with a disability participating in extraordinary events – swimming in the Malabar Magic or representing their own Rainbow Club by competing at the Rainbow Squads 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 Teachers
