Simcoe County's Premier Volleyball Club
The focus of the Elites organization is on providing the opportunity for athletes to maximize their athletic growth. We have developed over 50 athletes who have gone on to play at various post-secondary institutions in Canada and the US. Some of these athletes have competed at the international level in both indoor and beach events. For the 2015-16 indoor season, the Elites have 11 girls teams and 7 boys teams competing in the OVA, servicing over 190 athletes from 12U to 18U. Our club also offers camps to further develop athletes, regular clinics hosted at Georgian College, a house league to introduce younger athletes to the sport, and beach volleyball training during the summer.

The Barrie Elites are thrilled to announce the hiring of David Gross as our club’s first “full time” Director of Player and Coach Development. David has coached volleyball for more than thirty years and has been with the Elites since its inception, bringing to this new position a wealth of experience having coached every club age division both boys and girls.
“I have trained countless Barrie Elites’ athletes who have gone on to regional, provincial, college, university, or national team positions … I am excited to share my experiences with all our club athletes”, he exclaims. David was an Ontario university first team all-star playing at both McMaster University and Western University and started his formal coaching career as the head coach of the men’s volleyball program at McMaster. Coach Gross has had several placements with our Ontario provincial and regional teams and is currently a member of the head staff at Madawaska volleyball camp. “I have always considered myself a student of the game and have made it a practice to regularly meet with university and college coaches to discuss the newest technical and tactical trends to which I am now in a position to bring to all our Elites’ athletes and coaches”, adds Gross. Our director has agreed to an aggressive portfolio (attached to every boys’ and girls’ team) which will see him running team practices, age division skills clinics, guest appearances as requested, making team tournament observations with follow-up training and running monthly positional mini camps throughout the year. “I know that there are no short cuts to success … it is all about our athletes receiving quality input and feedback and then that athlete working hard”, concludes the director.
