Joe Getzin and the Rebels hosted a coaching clinic and spring tournament April 12-13.

OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss volleyball team enjoyed its busiest weekend of the spring season April 12-13, hosting a successful coaching clinic and six-team tournament at the Gillom Sports Center.
The two-day coaching clinic invited coaches of all levels and age groups to the beautiful Ole Miss campus. The clinic featured both on-court and classroom sessions and allowed the visiting coaches to interact with the instructing coaches throughout the clinic.
The Rebels’ spring tournament hosted Alabama, Memphis, Mississippi State, Southern Miss and Tennessee-Martin. Ole Miss played four matches Saturday.
“We had a very busy weekend with the coaching clinic, and our spring tournament,” Ole Miss head coach Joe Getzin said. “The coaching clinic had a great turnout and we are really pleased that we can help build volleyball in the state and surrounding area. We had some good discussions with the coaches and it was a good clinic overall.
“The tournament ran smoothly as well. We had good competition and tight matches and that’s what you want in the spring.”
Ole Miss has been plagued by injuries throughout the spring, and while unfortunate, the injuries have allowed the Rebel coaching staff to try players in new positions, and it believes that may help in the long run.
“It makes our players more versatile and gives them a greater understanding of what others have to do on the court,” Getzin said. “It also gives them a better court presence in the long term. I’m proud of the way they adapted to playing out of position and I can see us growing as a team.”
After playing in Memphis, Tenn., Louisville, Ky., and at home, Ole Miss will play in its fourth and final tournament of the spring season Saturday when it travels to Dallas.
“The tournament in Dallas is a very high level tournament,” Getzin said. “We will be in a pool with the defending national champions, Texas, Kansas State, which will represent the U.S. in the World University Games, and LSU.”
