UK Deaf Sport are keen to keep you moving! With so many options out there that aren’t accessible to Deaf users, we are working with other organisations and trainers to use the hashtag #DeafActiveOnline to help share and grow accessible activities.
UK Deaf Sport are proud to be leading and growing online physical activities to make sure deaf people stay active.
We are trying to do this in 3 main ways:
1. Promoting and Signposting any activities for deaf people online by others – consistently using our hashtag #DeafActiveOnline
2. Encouraging deaf Trainers/Instructors to do more online activities by giving financial help and technical advice.
3. Learning and sharing – monitoring and evaluating data about what works and what is needed, and sharing with all key players.

We’ve also created an Instagram page for all things #DeafStayInWorkOut related. Make sure to give it a follow! @DeafActiveOnline
How to use zoom
With the most of the online classes being done via zoom, here’s a subtitled/BSL video guide done by Clark on how to use it.
At UK Deaf Sport, the health and safety of everyone involved in the delivery and supporting of activities for Deaf children, young people and adults is our first priority. We are very aware of the growing concerns around Coronavirus; events happening in this country and also tournaments and competitions happening elsewhere in the world; and the importance of working together to reduce risk. Rest assured we are staying close to all public health advice.
We have created some pages to share with you some ideas around activities you could do at home. We will be constantly updating these pages, so watch this space.
If you have any ideas or like to get involved – share them with us on our facebook or twitter pages or email us at [email protected]
