About Swimming

Swimming has been a Deaflympic sport since its inception in 1924. Historically, American deaf swimmers have been among the strongest contenders in the world’s pools. The first American swimmer appeared at the 1939 Deaflympics and nabbed silver. Since then, our athletes have brought home countless medals and broke numerous national and world records both among peers and in the greater aquatic community.

USA Deaf Swimming (USADS) regulates national and international aquatic competitions for all deaf and hard of hearing members. The USADS coordinates swim competitions for deaf and hard of hearing swimmers and aims to further advance the level of skill by way of clinics and specialized coaching and training.
