Camp Director Scott Grandpre
Scott Grandpre enters his third season at the helm for the Sharks, since joining Simmons in 2015. The Rhode Island native has guided the Sharks to pair of winning records against conference opponents in as many years in addition to an appearance in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Championship Tournament Semifinals last season. Simmons posted an 8-3 mark vs. league foes in 2016 and earned a home playoff match as the number four seed in the GNAC Tournament.View Scott Grandpre's Bio ⟩
The Sharks have compiled a 14-8 (.636) tally in conference action during Grandpre's two-year tenure at the Fenway school and ranked as one of the top-serving teams in the nation in 2015, placing 11th among NCAA Division III leaders. He has already coached five All-Conference performers and as a tribute to his recruiting prowess, his first class of newcomers produced a First Team honoree, who was also selected to the New England All-Rookie squad.
Grandpre came to Boston following five years of experience as a coach at the NCAA Division I level. He 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. 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 Director of New England Amateur Athletic Union and is the Founder and Director of the RIPP Boston Volleyball Club. He 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.
Grandpre is married and he and his wife, Jenny, recently welcomed their second child into the family fold this past summer.
