Kin Ryu Judo Club Coaches Martin Rivers, Peter Seymour and Lisa Harrison have all been awarded the Sussex County Sports Partnership Bronze Volunteer Award. Working as coaches within the club and various roles within Sussex County Judo, the Kin Ryu trio put hours of work, dedication and effort into Judo in Sussex.

Co-Chief Coach Martin, said “I’ve been involved in Judo for 23 years, initially as a competitor both junior and senior and later as Sussex Senior Refereeing Coordinator and Sussex Web-Site Administrator. I have put in a lot of work in over this time for judo in Sussex and it’s fantastic to be recognised for some of it.”

Co-Chief Coach Peter added “While we get recognition every week as coaches from the children and adults who train at the club, it is great to be awarded for all the extra things we do outside of the club. I have been Assistant Competitions Coordinator in Sussex for a number of years and hope to continue for years to come.”

All of this comes at a perfect time of the year as 2006 is the year of the volunteer and in particular August is dedicated to Sports Volunteers, making this award even more special.
