SPORT PARTICIPATION

Deaf Sports Australia started using a new hearing loss eligibility level at the 2012 ADG. After feedback from participants and members, this eligibility level remains and has been used at the 2016 and 2018 ADG’s.

The hearing loss level is 40dB (decibel) or greater in the better ear, which is the same as having a moderate, severe or profound hearing loss.

All sport participants must declare that they have a hearing loss of 40dB or greater in their better ear when they register for a sports event and agree to the terms and conditions. If you have any concerns about this rule, please contact the GOC.

You are welcome to send Deaf Sports Australia an audiogram to prove that you have a hearing loss of 40bB or more. This information will be confidential and not shared with anyone unless required for sport participation assessment.
