Help our Athletes win Gold at the 2017 Summer Deaflympics

USA Deaf Sports Federation is the official governing body of the United States’ representation in the Deaflympic Games. For over 70 years, USADSF has produced national champions, international record-breakers and hundreds of Deaflympic medalists.

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.

We need your support to send our athletes to international competitions, and take training and coaching to the next level. Help us develop the next generation of deaf and hard of hearing athletes.  Please consider a donation or sponsorship to help our athletes represent the United States of America at the highest level.

Together we win.



I’ve been in many local and national competitions, but the 2015 Deaflympics in Russia was my first time competing against deaf peers. The Deaflympics is such a positive and enriching experience, especially if you come from a place where you're one of the very few deaf people in your community.
