In the next of our “Getting To Know Your SASCA Sports Coaches” series, we chat to netball’s Amanda Dreyer who celebrated her birthday on 2 August. Here she tells us a little more about herself.
Who are your role model in the sport?
My role model is Irene van Dyk. She was a fantastic player who was a great for South Africa but became a legend for New Zealand. One of the best players ever.
What is your most memorable personal sporting moment?
My team beat a team that they’d never beaten before in over four years. There was a lot of tears.
What is your most memorable other sporting moment that doesn’t involve you?
Watching the 1995 Rugby World Cup. From start to finish it was the perfect tournament and a real South African celebration.
In terms of your travels, what has been your favourite city and why?
I went to Edinburgh in Scotland, what a great place – and I had a blast at the Military Tattoo.
Where in South Africa do you live?
I stay in Sasolburg in the Vaal Triangle.
Your favourite app on your phone?
Your favourite TV show?
What else do you do outside of sports coaching?
I am a Realty Professional.
Finish the sentence. My sport is the best because …
Seeing my players performing at their best makes me happy. I love to uplift and be a part of their story.
