What's happening

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 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 Teachers

Malabar Magic Cancellation

Malabar Magic Cancellation

After 11 wonderful years of staging the Malabar Magic, Mother Nature intervened last weekend and forced us to cancel. Please consider making a donation equal to the entrance fee ($50) so that Rainbow Club can continue to share the joy of swimming by helping children with a disability learn to swim.
