Coach Stu Selland

“Coaching for Diablo has been a passion of mine for many years. Leading one team per year from selection to regionals; it’s ‘what I do’. I’ve selected my favorite team philosophies from a list composed by John Kessel of USA Volleyball fame:”

Lead with Desire, Practice Success, Winners in Life

Never Stop Teaching * Better the Person, Better the Ball

Develop Young Adults * Inspire Dedication, Teach and Inspire

Build Youth Character  * Play the Players

Keep it Positive *  Provide Meaningful Learning

Trust, Respect, Attitude * Make Improvement Fun

Bring the Positive Climate * Innovative not Imitative

Encourage Women of Integrity * Teach a Game I Love

Self-confidence Through Success * Help them be Better People

Develop Character and Ability  * Be Honest and Inspirational

Play Hard, Play Together, Play Smart


I like to coach in an atmosphere where players are committed to practice very hard and are learning all the time.  It is a player driven philosophy that holds the players accountable for their effort and performance.
