Chicho, is the Creator and Owner of Utah Bounce more than 18 years ago. He has been coaching since he was 15 years old.  He was a member of the Dominican Olympic team and before he moved to the United States almost a quarter of a century ago, Pelaez was the coach of the Dominican Republic’s national women’s team.  He is currently on the senior men’s US National volleyball team.

He teaches the players of Bounce technique, skill, and the game of volleyball. He also teaches so much more than the game.  He teaches compassion, how to lead, and lift up each other as teammates. We appreciate you Chicho and are so glad you built and opened Utah Bounce gym those many,  many years ago!
