The 18th Australian Deaf Games will be held in Albury-Wodonga in January 2018. The ACT will send a team along as always!
You can find out about this event here.
If you are interested in participating we’d love to hear from you. DeafACT usually sends a Netball and Touch Football sides and supports individual athletes.
We are hoping for a darts, beach volleyball and futsal team next time around and of course will happily help anyone try and gather any other team together if there’s enough interest.
Our fundraising for the event usually goes towards the costs of uniforms, interpreters and if we have enough we will subsidise the accommodation costs of ACT athletes and officials.
All players and officials MUST be DeafACT member to participate into Australian Deaf Games.
