Head Coach Tom Black sits down to talk about the 2012 season.
LMU volleyball returned to campus today in preparation for the 2012 season.
Joe Trinsey is in his first season working in the LMU volleyball program after being hired as a volunteer assistant coach in the summer of 2012.
Trinsey most recently served as a volunteer assistant for the USA Women's National Team as it prepared for the 2012 London Olympics. Under that title, Trinsey helped with practice set-up and player tutoring, statistical recording and analysis using DataVolley and other collection and analysis methods, and was responsible for the primary practice scouting and video coordination while working closely with volleyball legend Karch Kiraly.
After serving as an assistant coach with the Brandywine Volleyball Club from 2003-08, Trinsey was named head coach of the club in 2009. At the helm for the last three-plus years, he is responsible for helping to plan and execute training sessions for nine teams, ranging in age from U-10 to U-18. Serving as the head coach of the U-15 team in 2009-10, Trinsey saw his squad qualify for the Junior Olympic Nationals in Reno, Nev. The native of Delaware followed with the second of three straight Junior Olympic berths, this time guiding the U-17 team in 2010-11 to the tournament - the first time a team from Delaware had ever qualified for the Junior Olympic Nationals at 17s or 18s.
After a stellar high school career, Trinsey embarked on a four-year collegiate career at Stevens Institute of Technology in 2005. There, Trinsey served an integral role in the Duck volleyball program, including earning NCAA D3 first team All-America honors as a senior in 2009.
After finishing college, Trinsey focused his energy on his camps and clinics program, in addition to his coaching career. The owner and director of Trinsey Training Camps, Joe started a unique once-weekly series of hitting and defensive camps in 2003. The camps have continued to grow over the years, with more than 100 participants currently enrolled in year-round sessions.
Trinsey graduated from Stevens Institute in 2009 with a degree in applied mathematics.
