Gallaudet girls’ basketball camp

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University women’s basketball head coach
Stephanie Stevens along with several current and former student-athletes
helped with the 7th annual National Deaf Girls Basketball (NDGB) Camp held
at the Maryland School for the Deaf (MSD) in Frederick, Md., this past
June 25-29. The camp featured deaf and hard of hearing females, ages
10-18, from all over the country during the week long camp.

Everyday the NDGB staff recognized Campers of the Day. The practice
stations emphasized fundamentals like correct form, footwork, terminology
and position work to name a few.

“It’s hard to believe that we just concluded our 7th consecutive NDGB camp
at the end of June. Each year, we have seen tremendous growth in the
number of campers and the fundamental development of camp,” said Stevens.
“Since 2013, our Gallaudet women’s basketball program has been involved
with the NDGB camp by providing staff and coaches, who have been either
former campers and/or past, current, and future Bison.”

For the sixth consecutive year the camp attended a Washington Mystics WNBA
game at the Capital One Arena where they hosted the New York Liberty.

“We would like to send our appreciation to the co-founders of the NDGB
camp, Amy Mowl and Jon Mowl, for allowing us to return to camp every
year,” added Stevens. “This camp has been successful because of the
partnership with Maryland School for the Deaf, Gallaudet Admissions and
the Washington Mystics. Thank you for an amazing camp. We are already
gearing for next summer!”

The camp has established a core group of future leaders on and off the
court by encouraging camp staff and coaches to return and grow the women’s
game. A handful of veteran staff members (Gallaudet women’s basketball
alumni) returned for their third+ year. Current, former and future
Gallaudet basketball student-athletes and support staff included; Amy Mowl
(seventh year), Jon Mowl (seventh year), Elena Ciccarelli (sixth year),
Stephanie Stevens (sixth year), Leslye Kang (fourth year), Kelly Simcik
(fourth year), Kelli Barnes (third year), Mia Goldberg (third year),
Emelia Beldon (second year), Sabina Shysh (second year), Fatuma Ali
(first year), Tiffany Anderson (first year), Ernelina Beldon (first year),
Hannah Neild (first year), Becka Pittard and John Werner, Jr. (first year).

The 8th annual National Deaf Girls Basketball Camp will be held next June
2019 at MSD. Finalized dates for the camp will be announced at a later dat

Gold Coast to host world deaf titles

Australia has won the right to host the 2022 World Deaf Golf Championship.

The World Deaf Golf Federation announced that Royal Pines on the Gold
Coast will be the host club after a joint proposal from Deaf Golf
Australia and Golf Australia.

“It’s a collaboration of Deaf Golf Australia, Deaf Sports Australia,
RACV Royal Pines, Golf Queensland and the City of Gold Coast coming
together to show what we can do as a team to deliver a high-class
event,” Hamilton said.

“The 72-hole championship only happens once every two years, so we
really encourage people to come out and support all the incredible
athletes when the world’s best converge on the Gold Coast in four
years.”

Deaf Golf Australia president Wendy Home was delighted the tournament
would make a return visit.

“It’s the second time the championship will be held in Australia after
the successful WDGC event that was hosted at the Joondalup Golf Resort in
Perth in 2008,” Home said.

Deaf Golf in Australia (see story above) means one thing -
USA golfers will escape winter while flying to Australia,
