Do the snatch properly, don't just eliminate it. You can eliminate it and not experience a problem, but as soon as you re-introduce it, the problem will be back and you'll be no better off than you are now.

Identify the cause of the problem with your coach and come up w strategy to correct it. At the very least, overhead squat your power snatches after receiving them, and make sure you're still doing snatch balances and overhead squats to improve the bottom position and improve/maintain mobility.
