BSL/Deaf-friendly Curling

Scottish Curling is working in partnership with staff from the Languages Department at Heriot-Watt University and curlers who use British Sign Language to develop some new BSL signs for curling terms. This will help in communication with Deaf people and open up Curling to a whole new group of people. If you are interested in being part of this project, particularly if you are a first language BSL user, please contact Helen Kallow, Disability Curling Development Officer. Several coaches have already successfully worked with  deaf adults or young people and are happy to share their experiences and advice, contact Helen Kallow,
