The National Deaf Children’s Society and the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) have teamed up to create the Deaf-Friendly Swimming i-Learn course to help coaches become more deaf aware. This accredited course is easy to complete and free of charge.
The Deaf-Friendly Swimming i-Learn course is an excellent tool for teachers and coaches to learn how to teach and coach the deaf swimmer and ensure that deaf and hard of hearing young people are fully supported in accessing swimming sessions.
The ASA and the IoS encourage every active teacher and coach to take advantage of this brilliant free course to continue to ensure that swimming is a fully inclusive sport.
