Winner of the National Inspirational Club Coach/Teacher Award

Plymouth Diving was without a diving pool from July 2020 until September of this year. The pool closure due to repair work severely hampered training. Throughout this period Sally Freeman was at the helm of a small team of coaches who continued to deliver training to as many of the club divers as possible. With her contacts in the diving world, Sally arranged for wet training at Southampton and Poole. In order to run these training sessions it meant sacrificing time with her partner and children.

The last 18 months has been tough for Plymouth Diving and at times it has been a challenge to remain positive. As a former Olympian, diving is not just a job for Sally it is a vocation. In recognition of her unwavering dedication to the club, Swim England awarded Sally with the National Inspirational Club Coach/Teacher Award on Saturday 9th October. Roger Downing, the Regional President from Swim England South West presented this to Sally at the Plymouth Life Centre.
