Swimmers who are deaf appreciate any effort by their coaches and teammates to learn signs for swimming terminology. Two members of the 2009 USA Deaflympics swimming team, Jessica Weeden and Will Landgren, have prepared a short instructional video on this topic.
The video is posted on Youtube. Watch the video here. Coaches are encouraged to download the video to their electronic devices so the information is at their fingertips during practices and meets.
