Technical Director – Damien Ler

Torpedo is delighted to announce that Damien Ler has joined the Torpedo coaching team as technical director and fundamentals coach.

Damien was the national diving manager at SSA for 11 years and was tasked with building a national diving programme from scratch in 2008. He led the efforts in recruitment, coaching development and club development, on top of his national tram management duties. Damien left SSA in 2019 to pursue other professional interests, after delivering Singapore’s first ever diving Olympian (Jonathan Chan) in September 2019.

Affectionately known as Mr Diving in the local community, Damien will spearhead the club efforts in building a robust club programme at Torpedo, and provide valuable advice to our divers, parents on the diving development pathways and student athlete pathways.
