Hi everyone! My name is Skip Flanagan and I’m the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) athlete development program coordinator. I work with deaf athletes to help improve their academic and athletic experience on and off the field.

These videos focus on sports we have here at RIT (look for additional sports here soon). The goal for the videos is to educate all different people out there, such as coaches, athletes who want to improve their ASL terminology, and anyone who is interested in learning.

I hope the videos are helpful. If you have any additional signs that we didn’t cover, or have any questions, please contact me at:, LBJ 60-1270, 585-371-7044 (VP).

Thank you!
