Janice DiNobile begins her fourth season as the head softball coach at Rhode Island College.


I want my players to take their talent and competitiveness to the next level,” said DiNobile. “Everything must come together on game days. Talent may win games, but teams win championships. Ultimately, I want these women to achieve something special." 




 Despite coming on board in the fall with no opportunity to recruit, DiNobile led the Anchorwomen back to the Championship Game of the Little East Conference Tournament for the second consecutive season in 2014.


DiNobile joined the Anchorwomen after serving as the head varsity softball coach at North Providence High School for nine seasons. In her most recent season at the helm of the program, DiNobile led the Cougars to the 2013 Division II Championship and to a 21-1 record overall, the best mark of her tenure. She was named the 2013 East/West Division Coach of the Year, while her squad garnered the 2013 Team Sportsmanship Award. The 2013 campaign marked the fourth straight trip to the postseason for North Providence.




In addition to her coaching duties at N.P.H.S., she worked as a private softball instructor for the Upper Deck Baseball Academy in Cumberland from 2006-2010, while also serving as the head basketball coach at Ricci Middle School in North Providence for the past decade.




Prior to her coaching career, DiNobile starred in softball for St. Joseph’s College in Standish, Maine. She was a standout third baseman for the Monks from 1997-2000 and captained the squad during her final three seasons. DiNobile earned 1999 Maine Athletic Conference McDonald’s Player of the Year honors and earned NAIA Academic All-American honors that same season. During her career, she was named to both the All-Maine Athletic Conference Team and to the Maine All-State Intercollegiate Softball Team from 1998-2000. 


She graduated from St. Joseph’s in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in physical education and earned her health certification from Rhode Island College in 2002.




DiNobile has taught physical education and health education in the North Providence School Department since 2001. After spending her first five years at McGuire Elementary School, she has worked at North Providence High School since 2006.




She currently resides in North Providence.
