David Rubio is no stranger to success. Few in the history of the sport can compete with the accomplishments of San Bernardino Valley College's decorated former Women’s Volleyball head coach. In 2010, Rubio, the seven‐time Foothill Conference Coach of the Year, enters his 4th season at the helm of the SBVC Athletic Department. In his time at SBVC, he helped establish the Women’s Volleyball program as one of the premier collegiate volleyball programs in Southern California.
Rubio has been in the spotlight of women’s volleyball since he began his coaching career 21 years ago at Colton High School. While at SBVC, he collected eleven Conference titles, including 5 straight Conference titles between 1994 and 1998, and an impressive 66 game winning streak against Conference opponents from 1994 to 1999. He has taken 12 teams to the post season and led his 2002 team to a State Finals appearance. Rubio is the winningest coach in SBVC Women’s Volleyball history with 250 career victories. He also boasts a 332‐106 career record, with a 250‐98 (.718) mark at SBVC.
In 1986, just before he started attending college, Rubio became co‐head coach with Leslye Williams for the Colton High School girls volleyball team and coached there in until 1989. Every year Rubio met with achievement, assisting Williams in winning four consecutive Citrus Belt League titles in four years from 1986 to 1989. Rubio’s record at Colton was an impressive, 82‐8.
In the meantime, Rubio attended Cal State San Bernardino from 1987‐1990 where he was the captain of the collegiate club men's volleyball team that would face off against some of the toughest NCAA intercollegiate Universities.
In 1989, while still a student at Cal State and still assisting at Colton High School, Rubio took over for Gene Mazzei at San Bernardino Valley College where he was Head Coach.
Rubio continued to implement aspects of successful coaching that he learned from Williams and Mazzei, as well as his own nuances. By his sixth season at SBVC, Rubio had built a first place team, making SBVC Women’s Volleyball the preeminent power in the Foothill Conference for the next fourteen years.
Rubio had several women named to All‐Southern California, including Gabriella Mojska in 1997, Allie Newman in 2004, Becca Beall in 2001 and 2000. In 2002, Ashley Esqueda was named to Southern California All‐State, among many others.
Rubio retired from coaching the Women's volleyball team after the 2007 season to take over as the full time Director of Athletics at San Bernardino Valley College.
