Active Deaf Program
Active Deaf Kids is a sport initiative that was established in 2011. Delivered by Deaf Sports Australia, this program includes working with deaf and hard of hearing children in all sports. Schools across Australia apply for Active Deaf Kids Program through the Sporting School online application.
The Active Deaf Sports Club is another sport initiative delivered by Deaf Sports Australia. The aim is to provide mainstream sports organisations the opportunity to integrate inclusion practises for their deaf and hard of hearing sports participants.
The Active Deaf High-Performance program includes pathways where deaf and hard of hearing individuals are identified, recruited and offered further training opportunities through other programs or events, because of potential talent.
Active Inclusion Sports Days
Activate Inclusion Sports Days are one day programs designed to promote the pathways for inclusion sport and active recreation programs in local community areas and encourage students with a disability to participate in community sport and active recreation on a regular basis.
