Chrispine (profoundly Deaf) is kicking goals on and off the field with his soccer club, The South Toowoomba Hawks Soccer Club! Chrispine joined the club over a year ago and the club has been so welcoming! Not too long ago, Chrispine became the star of the team and was selected to play in the state championships! Unfortunately due to Covid19, the state competition was cancelled.
For coaching sessions, Chrispine uses an interpreter, DW team member Don, who assists with any discussions around team playing strategies and also with competition dates. For training sessions, our support worker Peter (also Deaf) takes Chrispine along for communication support.
We are all so proud of Chrispine and really appreciate the willingness of the Hawks Soccer Club for leading the way for social inclusion in our sporting community.
Love your fancy footwork, Chrispine!
