Volleyball with people who have disability with their ears And British Sign Language

In the morning I went to play volleyball, though it's not same as usual but with some deaf people. I did a month ago followed by britsh sign language lecture.

At this time, there were also some of volleyball members coming to play, and there're also many deaf players! It's really fun to do volleyball not thinking of whether we can speak or not. It's not big deal when we started to play.

Well, it's a month ago when I leaned the way to introduce myself, and also some easy expression in volleyball…...and I didn't revise well…...I forgot most of signs… at first I couldn't even talk with people…..also I was afraid that I don't know how to start talking…..Well, at last, by gesture or any other way, I could? somehow tell a bit what I want to say…....

In volleyball, we often have to say loudly, 'Mine', 'Over', 'Out', etc…..but in this volleyball, it makes any sense…...I have not known of deaf volleyball so far, so I don't know at all how people contact each other in the match….they would do some signs, but like the cases above, especially we want to direct immediately….
Also people are only guided by their eye-sight. They can only rely on what they can see…
Um…...It's really difficult sports if people have some disabilities with their body.

It's not really focused about the 'Paralinpic', always held soon after Olympic games…..but I think they are really great!! Even healthy body can't beat them frequently.

I also feel I'm not really experienced with this matter…...I don't know how to contact people, what kind of words are preferable…....

I should look more different aspects of the life and the societies…..There're mountainous sorts of thing I have never known, seen, tried…...
