Workshop Description

Sports may seem like its own language. Football, baseball, soccer, and basketball have all become a part of American culture and thus an unavoidable part of our language. This workshop will cover the ASL signs for baseball and basketball as well as common depictions and concepts used to visually show plays, provide updates and give commentary. Using an immersion approach, participants will apply the learned information. This workshop is ideal for interpreters in educational and VRS settings and those who love linguistics.

Educational Objectives:

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate signs used by Deaf sports enthusiasts for Baseball and Basketball fundamentals.
  • Visually depict plays, provide game updates and give commentary. 
  • Convey game information seen on video to others using ASL.
