Former Tampa Bay Storm owner Bob Gries announced Thursday he will commit $1 million towards a joint youth volleyball club program with Tampa United Volleyball Club.
“Our goal with Tampa United will be to create an atmosphere for elite athletes to have opportunities that have not existed in the past,” Gries said in a release. “The club will continue to assist all athletes in obtaining college scholarships and, to that end, will be hiring a college recruiting coordinator. We will have the finest coaches, facilities and resources.”
Tampa United alumni include former Plant High state champions and standouts Kellie Catanach and Danielle Erb. Catanach, the daughter of University of Tampa women’s volleyball coach Chris Catanach, went on to star at Duke University, while Erb, who recently was voted the new face of Hawaiian Tropic, played at James Madison.
The joint project also includes Tampa United and any other club volleyball programs using a youth facility Griese is currently developing. The facility is expected to include beach volleyball training, strength conditioning, video production and specialty camps.
