Meet your coaching staff
A Maryland-native, Coach Grubb started his lacrosse career in the 70s at the McDonogh School near Baltimore and earned a scholarship to play at Rutgers University. Through the 80s, he was a certified referee, a founder of the Harford (MD) Lacrosse Club, and became the Associate Head Coach at Spaulding High School in Vermont. In the fall of 1992, Grubb joined the collegiate ranks as the Head Lacrosse Coach at the University of Tennessee, leading the Volunteers to the SouthEastern Lacrosse Conference (SELC) Championship in ’93, ’94, ’99 and ’00, advancing 3 teams (’99, ’00, ’01) to the MCLA National Championships, and receiving SELC Coach of the Year honors in 1994 and 1999. From 2002 to 2005, Grubb oversaw the emergence of the lacrosse program at Wake Forest University before taking over at Clemson University in the fall of 2005. Receiving SELC Coach of the Year honors in 2008 and again in 2011, Coach Grubb has successfully developed the Clemson Tigers into a consistent contender in the SouthEastern Lacrosse Conference and an emerging national presence in the MCLA (Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association).
A member of the Century Club, Coach Grubb has compiled over 200 collegiate victories and produced winning teams 17 of his 20 seasons on the sidelines. He continues to volunteer his time on growing the sport in the Southeast as the former President of the SELC and member of the Men’s Division Board of Governors of US Lacrosse, the sport’s National Governing Body. Grubb currently serves as the President of the South Carolina Chapter of US Lacrosse.
US Sports Camps, Inc is extremely pleased to offer this camp with one of the most accomplished and knowledgeable coaches in the Southeast. Coach Grubb will also draw on over 20 years of summer camp coaching experience to offer a curriculum that will have an immediate impact on camper’s skills and knowledge of the sport.
“Our vision for this camp will focus on instruction,” states Coach Grubb, “working with our campers to improve not only their individual skills and sense of the game, but also their ability to contribute to team skills and success. Lacrosse is exploding in the southeast and we hope to make a solid and continuing contribution to the evolution and maturation of the sport in this region.”
