Southern California native Jennifer Adeva was named head coach
of the Cal State Dominguez Hills volleyball program on June 2, 2011, and guided the 2012 Toros to their most successful season in nearly a decade.
Adeva was named the CCAA Coach of the Year in 2012, giving the Toros their first CCAA Coach of the Year honor in the volleyball program’s history, with two players also earning 2nd-team All-CCAA honors.
The 2012 season was a resurgence for the program as the Toros
picked up 11 more wins this past year to tie for the best single-season improvement in CSUDH volleyball history.
In league play, Adeva led the Toros to a program-best 10 wins, including sweeps of perennial powers Cal State L.A., Cal Poly Pomona, Chico State and UC San Diego to account for four of their CCAA wins, with the victories over the Wildcats and Tritons on the road.
Prior to CSUDH, Adeva spent four seasons as the top
assistant for the Wake Forest volleyball program, located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, finishing tied for 5th in the ACC with a 19-12 record. Prior to her stint at Wake Forest, Adeva spent the 2006 season coaching at alma mater Cal State Fullerton, helping the Titans to a 17-12
overall record and a 6-8 mark in the Big West Conference.
Before her year at CSUF, Adeva spent six seasons back east as a coach, with one season at Nicholls State (2000-01), three seasons at Tennessee State (2001-04) and two seasons at Charlotte (2004-05).
Adeva began her collegiate coaching career in 1998 as an assistant coach at Santa Ana College before being named head coach a year later. The following season, Adeva headed southeast to Nicholls State where she was an assistant coach of the Colonels in 2000. During both the 1999 and 2000 seasons, Adeva earned a California Beach Volleyball Association AAA Rating.
She then spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Tennessee State from 2001-04, finishing up as the interim head coach in 2004. Adeva joined Lisa Marston's staff at Charlotte in 2004 and coached the 49ers for two seasons before heading back to Fullerton in 2006.
Her career started at the College of the Canyons (1991-93) where she was a two-time 1st-team All-Western Conference performer, before transferring to Cal State Fullerton (1994-96) where she earned Academic All-Big West Conference honors and was named team captain in 1996, also earning NSCA All-America honors as a senior.
Adeva has extensive experience coaching at the club level, including the Carolina Juniors "Slam" team, an 18-year-old national-level squad out of Charlotte. Adeva's team captured the 18-Gold National Division Championship in the 2006 USA Volleyball Junior Olympics.
In 2005, her 17-and-under team also posted eight first-place finishes that included the Asics Nationals Championship in Chicago, the East Coast Championships at Penn State and the Asics Big South Qualifier in Atlanta. The team finished 9th in the 17-National Division in the 2005 USA Volleyball Junior Olympics.
Adeva also has coached the Pacific Volleyball Club in Woodland Hills (1993-94), the Impact Volleyball Club in Orange (1995-98) and the Santa Monica Beach Club in Santa Monica (1998-99).
A 1997 graduate of Cal State Fullerton, Adeva earned her bachelor's degree in Kinesiology, and her master's in Education from Azusa Pacific in 1999.
