SCA Recognition Awards 2017- Professional Coach of the Year

Thu 14 December 2017

Professional Coach of the Year

This award for someone who coaches for a living, but always goes that extra mile (main source of employment is in coaching).  

Winner of the Professional Coach of the Year: Dave Rossetter

Dave’s mantra is ‘Getting more people boating, more often’.  He has been a professional paddlesports coach for many years and is known to most paddlers around Scotland and beyond! His role as Head of Paddlesports at Glenmore Lodge keeps him extremely busy with work, but what people don’t realise is the amount of time and energy that he gives. In his own free time Dave mentor’s several coaches through coaching and leadership awards; he is a member of several SCA committees and well known on the club scene, and has helped lots of clubs in many ways.  

He is a role model for many in terms of his technical paddling ability in several disciplines, but also in his sense of adventure, his drive for continuous development of his own skill and his constant hunt for challenge both in boating and coaching terms – all while following his quest to ‘Get more people boating, more often’.
