The CDSA Sport Awards

The CDSA Sport Awards were created to recognize the contribution of athletes, coaches and managers of our national team and Canadian Deaf sports programs. These awards are presented at each Deaflympic cycle, that is, every two years, to athletes, coaches and national team managers who have made an important contribution to deaf sports in Canada. We also want to recognize athletes’ involvement because they act as representatives, spokespersons or intermediaries between other athletes and our community.
