Deaf Sports Day
Deaf and hard of hearing children compete in this annual event looked after by Junior Sports Development Officer Just like any athletics day but with one huge difference, there is no starting gun, so how does Deaf Sports Day Work? We have signalled lights or flags are used during the start of the races. We have events such as sprints, medium or long distance running, high jump, long jump, discus, shot-put and the famous volunteer vs students relays Past deaf athletes who have had many great achievements in Athletes with Disability, Australian Deaf Games or Deaflympics are available to share their knowledge and be strong role models for the future deaf and hard of hearing athletes. Deaf Sports Day gives deaf and hard of hearing children the opportunity to learn, compete, meet, socialise and make new friends.
