Camp Director Scott Grandpre
Scott Grandpre is the Head Volleyball Coach at Simmons College. The Sharks mentor guided the squad to a 21-10 season record in 2017, including 11-1 in conference play, to establish school records for both regular season and conference wins. Grandpre saw Simmons vie for the conference championship for the first time in school history last year, following a program-best 12-match win streak, bolstered by the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Player of the Year.View Scott Grandpre's Bio ⟩
The Rhode Island native has coached the Sharks to great success in conference play with three straight winning records against league foes, while compiling a 25-9 (.735) mark to go with an appearance in the conference title match and a semi-final nod. During Grandpre's three-year tenure at the Fenway school, Simmons ranked as one of the top-serving teams in the nation in 2017, placing ninth among Division III leaders and was 11th following the 2015 campaign. He has already coached seven 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 and the following year was named the GNAC Player of the year.
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.
Grandpre is married and he and his wife, Jenny, recently welcomed their second child into the family fold this past summer.
