Christina Pulver has been an integral part of the Temecula/Murrieta volleyball community for the past 11 years. In year 1 at Forza1 Christina built the Forza For All Middle School League that hosted 38 6th-8th grade girls and boys teams. The league, comprised of teams from Temecula, Murrieta and the surrounding areas, is one of the biggest in Southern California and that is a testament to Christina's strength as a leader and quality of character. The school leagues have surpassed 50 teams!
It all began 2008 when she started coaching at Park Center Volleyball Club (PCVC) when her oldest daughter, Elizabeth, fell in love with the sport. With her tremendous skill set as a leader, communicator and organizer,
Christina quickly became the Club Director when Club West purchased PCVC in 2009. Club West more than doubled in size under Christina's leadership, with all the top teams in each age group ranking in the Gold Division at SCVA. Christina has coached top teams in the 13's and 14's age division and helped start up the first ever Middle School Volleyball league in Temecula. She started a boys program and tripled the Middle School Volleyball League to 25 teams, with more than 270 girls and boys participating in the Murrieta and Temecula Valley school districts in 2013.
Christina’s ability to create a positive and loving atmosphere while at the same time leading and directing a high-level staff, is a tremendous gift! Christina continues to help take Forza1 to the next level as Director of Operations by utilizing her business background, excellent communication skills, and ability to work well with people of all ages!
