Scott Grandpre
Camp Director

Scott Grandpre

Scott Grandpre was named Head Volleyball Coach at Simmons prior to the 2015 campaign. The Rhode Island native came to Boston following five years a coach at the NCAA Division I level. Grandpre has spent the past four seasons on the sideline of the Sacred Heart University women's program. While with the Pioneers, he directed drills and administered on-court instruction.

Read Full Bio
He was an integral part to the team's scouting effort and also used analytics to help prepare the squad for upcoming opponents as well as making adjustments and improving the Pioneers' play as a team and individuals. The Sacred Heart graduate also managed game-day events and fundraising efforts. Prior to his three-year stint with the women's program, Grandpre enjoyed a four-year playing career with the Pioneers. He was a two-year Captain for the men's squad and graduated in 2010 as the program's single-season record-holder for service aces and digs. Following his playing career, he wasted no time getting into the coaching ranks as an assistant for the University of Rhode Island women's team, before returning to his alma mater a season later to serve as an assistant for the men's program. In addition to his coaching duties at the collegiate level, Grandpre has worked hard to establish his presence in area volleyball circles. He is the Founder and Director of the RIPP Volleyball Club out of Fairfield, Conn. and has also served as a Master Coach for the TCA Volleyball Club team, while serving as Director of Volleyball Operations for the Northeast Volleyball Showcase in Trumbull, Conn. Grandpre graduated with a degree in Mathematics and Biology and has put his education to good use, founding Interactive Live Sports Entertainment in 2012. Through his company, he has developed software and applications for the purpose of analyzing volleyball statistics as well as game film, while also making volleyball matches interactive for fans. The former outside hitter is currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree from Sacred Heart. Grandpre is married and he and his wife, Jenny, recently became parents for the first time in the spring of 2015.

Camper Reviews

Allison D.Parent of Simmons College Camper 4/12/2017

  • 5/5.

My daughter did your overnight camp this past year and loved it! It was the perfect blend of volleyball/athletics and experiencing the flavors of Boston. She asked me to sign her up again this year. My daughter ended up making the freshman team this year as an 8th grader and is very excited to continue on a successful path in the program. And I was also pleased that she also made the JV tennis team this spring. Her move to high school has proven to be a good one for her!

Great learning experience

Kudos to Scott Grandpre and his entire organization. This camp was a great learning experience, both on and off the court. My daughter improved her skills, made new friends and had a lot of fun. We'll definitely be back next year!
