NDCS – First Scottish Deaf-Friendly Swimming Gala

Deaf swimmers in the pool

The National Deaf Children’s Society and North Lanarkshire Leisure are teaming up to hold a deaf-friendly swimming gala in Airdrie.

Swimmers will have the opportunity to meet deaf role models, take part in a swimming ‘master class’ and put their skills into action in the deaf-friendly swimming gala!

This is an exciting opportunity for deaf swimmers to meet, have fun and compete together in a friendly and supportive environment. Young people must be able to swim 25 metres+. No previous competitive experience necessary.
