Deaf Sports Recreation Victoria (DSRV) was established in 1982 and is the state parent sporting body in Victoria representing the deaf and hard of hearing community. DSRV is a non for profit organisation that also manages Victorian representatives of Australian deaf sports teams competing in local competitions. DSRV plays a role in putting deaf and hard of hearing Victorians in touch with various sporting clubs and keeping the community informed of events and opportunities for meeting new and like-minded people.
DSRV is associated with numerous sporting clubs, recreational groups and health and wellbeing practitioners and is always looking to create new partnerships.
Every 4 years, DSRV supports and coordinates a Victorian state team to participate in the Australian Deaf Games, the most important and largest sporting event in Australia for the deaf and hard of hearing.
