In addition to his work with the Badgers, Lucas also founded the Brock Volleyball Club (BVC) which helps develop elite volleyball athletes in the Niagara region. The club currently has four teams competing in the Ontario Volleyball Association.
Before taking over the Badgers, he coached at both the high school and club level in the Niagara Region. As head coach of the Governor Simcoe senior boy’s team, he led them to three straight SOSSA titles and three Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) appearances.
At the 2002 OFSAA “AA” Boy’s Volleyball Championships in Goderich, Lucas led them to a gold medal to become the first Southern Ontario (SOSSA) volleyball school to win a high school provincial championship.
At the club level, he has coached the Niagara Rapids in a variety of age categories working his way up through the ranks.
