Shaina Afoa
Associate Head Coach
Anchorage native Shaina Afoa returns to the Seawolf coaching staff for her fifth season overall in 2016-17 and her second as the program's top assistant.

Since joining Ryan McCarthy’s staff, Afoa has helped the Seawolves to a 103-24 overall record, three NCAA Tournamanet berths, and back-to-back GNAC regular-season and tournament titles. In her first year as the lead assistant coach, UAA also captured the NCAA West Region title and earned its first-ever berth in the National Title Game.

In addition to administrative and recruiting duties, Afoa has been a key to the development and success of UAA's post players, working with such recent all-league standouts as Alysa Horn, KeKe Wright and All-American Megan Mullings.


Afoa was a three-sport athlete at GNAC rival Central Washington from 2006-11, lettering four times in both basketball and track & field, plus once in volleyball.

A three-year starter at center, she finished No. 2 on the Wildcats’ career list for blocks with 126, plus fourth in rebounds (599), sixth in games started (79) and 10th in field-goal percentage (.461).

A graduate of Anchorage’s Dimond High School, Afoa earned her bachelor’s degree in Art/Graphic Design from CWU in 2011 and her graduate certificate in Human Services from UAA in 2014.
