ALERT: Medical Commission makes a statement on our USA Team participation on upcoming international competitions.


United States of America Deaf Sports Federation, USADSF, was formerly known as American Athletic Union of the Deaf, AAUD, which was established in 1945. Primary focus are to regulate uniform rules of competition for affiliated national sport organizations, facilitate the participation of US teams in international competition, and to promote human rights and equity through sports.

Together We Win

Funding our athletes and the cost of competition is our greatest barrier to winning Gold. The burden of fundraising has had to be shouldered by our deaf and hard of hearing athletes and coaches, and oftentimes athletes pay out of pocket upwards of $5,000 to compete. Your support would help send our athletes to international competitions, and take training and coaching to the next level.
