Head Coach Head Coach – Shaina Steinberg

Since picking up a volleyball for the first time at a clinic in 2010, the game has changed my life forever! It quickly became my passion and what kept me motivated to do better and be better; there was no turning back! I was involved with Diablo clinics before playing at Clayton Valley Charter High School and then at Sonoma State University for the Women’s Club team. We were fortunate enough to bring home the title of Division ll National Champions in 2018. During my time at Sonoma State, I was given the opportunity to be the head coach at Casa Grande High School for the Freshman and JV team and the assistant coach for the Varsity team. Coaching at a high school level inspired me to start coaching for NOMAR volleyball club where I was the head coach for a 14 Premer team. After returning home from college, I began coaching for Diablo where I was the assistant coach of a 15 Power team and 16 Premier team. Since then, I have been able to head coach a 14 Premier team. I am always excited to share my love of the game and help athletes reach their goals!
Some of my goals are:

  • Creating a positive, inclusive environment where players can develop as athletes – both mentally and physically
  • Fostering a environment where the players feel inspired to strengthen their skills – individually and as a team
  • To see an athlete holistically and to adapt my coaching to what the player/team needs
  • Building confidence through hard work and a positive mindset
  • Having fun!
