Torrance “TG” Pearce brings his unique brand of fiery enthusiasm and a full two decades to the table as the newest member of the Actyve staff. TG will be serving Actyve in a number of capacities, including Director of coaching development, overseeing the training of our 11-14’s age divisions and as Head coach of our 17-1’s.

TG’s passion for coaching has taken him to great heights in both the club and high school coaching arenas; in the latter, he found sustained success over eleven years as Head Varsity Coach for Boys and Girls at Saint Monica’s High School, winning a combined 5 Del Rey League Titles and getting as deep as the Final Four in CIF. His extensive time in the club coaching trenches, first at Sports Shack volleyball club and more recently with LAVA volleyball club, has also seen TG compile an impressive laundry list of accomplishments, both within the Southern California region and beyond it.

While his experience includes coaching 14’s -16’s to SCVA Division 1 finishes, historically T.G. has made his biggest and best marks in the 17’s and 18’s divisions. He notched three straight Top Five finishes at the year-end Volleyball Festival from 2005-2007, before taking the Junior Nationals (JO’s) by storm beginning in 2008 with a Top Ten 17’s Open Division finish. His teams have earned Top Ten finishes at a myriad of other prestigious national tournaments, including the SCVA Junior National Qualifier, the Far Western Qualifier, Colorado Qualifier, the Las Vegas Classic and AAU’s Open Division. 

TG has led many of his teams to medal finishes, including a Gold Medal (at Far Westerns in 2011), Silver Medal (at Junior Nationals in Miami in 2009) and most recently Bronze (at Junior Nationals in Indianapolis in 2016). In recent years his 17’s teams have finished their seasons ranked among the best teams nationally in that age division. Two of them finished in the top 30, in the nation!
