ABSTRACT
Twenty-one deaf sport directors were surveyed to provide preliminary information of the characteristics of those involved in deaf sport and the socialization processes that lead to their involvement. Communication-related factors provided incentives for deaf individuals to participate in deaf sport. Schools for the deaf as well as deaf acquaintances were the dominant factors for socializing deaf individuals into deaf sport. More research on such sport is needed so that the nature of individuals who participate in it and the general implications that it has for them can be fully understood.
