Our History

Club Officials The Coachella Valley Boxing Club was founded by Lee Espinoza at the Boys & Girls Club in order for his son to pursue the sport of boxing. At that time, Lalo Gutierrez owned the Boxing Club name but he retired soon after, and Lee became the owner of the original club for the next five years.

Then, due to lack of available space at the Boys & Girls Club, Lee relocated the club next to Coachella City Hall in the old fire station. Despite confined quarters and little financial support, the program flourished. Lee’s guidance and overall commitment to community is demonstrated by these youth who continue to succeed in business, in the neighborhood, and in the boxing ring.
