Groves had a hugely successful playing career, in which he played in a total of 5 VAFA Premierships (including winning successive C, B and A Section flags with St Bedes/Mentone) and he also represented the VAFA’s Big V in 5 senior representative games. 
Groves is Level 3 accredited coach who has spent the past 5 years as TAC Cup assistant coach, including stints at the Sandringham Dragons and most recently the Calder Cannons.
