Dave Beecroft

Head Coach and Owner

Dave started his paddlesport career during his apprenticeship in the outdoor industry. Shortly afterwards he gained his first Coaching Award after which he began to run Kayak and Canoe sessions for Tees Barrage International Whitewater Center and Cleveland Canoe Club. He developed his personal and coaching skills on the Tees Barrage Whitewater course and on the rivers of the Northwest and Northeast, as well as some international experience. Dave moved to Nottingham and then Leicester, along the way he continued to develop his personal and coaching skills. He has worked as both a permanent employee and a freelancer for various companies and organisations. 


Dave has always dreamed of running his own paddlesport business, so why has he waited until now? He has a passion for quality coaching delivered with a personal touch and therefore waited until he was able to deliver top quality courses during which individuals can develop into confident capable paddlers.
