We have been advised of the following opportunities to officiate at two deaf-friendly events:
University of Nottingham (NG7 2RD)
Saturday 19th March 2016
11:00am – 1:15 pm
Streatham Leisure Centre (SW16 6HX)
Sunday 1st May 2016
12:15pm – 2:15pm
Swimming is one of the sports deaf young people most want to take part in, however the natural distance between a swimmer and a coach, the acoustics of a swimming pool and the need to remove hearing aids before entering a pool mean swimming can pose a number of challenges and additional barriers for deaf young people. These events are an exciting opportunity for deaf swimmers to meet, have fun and compete together in a fun and friendly environment.
NDCS is seeking enthusiastic volunteers to fulfil a number of technical official roles:
Non-technical volunteer roles are also available. Communication support will be provided throughout the event by NDCS volunteers so previous experience of working with deaf young people or British Sign Language skills are not necessary. Agreed travel expenses will be reimbursed.
Posters for the two events are attached.
To express your interest or for further information please contact Ashleigh Scott, Swimming Development Officer; firstname.lastname@example.org 0121 234 6225.
