2019 Keynote Speaker
Valerie Kondos Field (Miss Val)
Miss Val was head coach of the seven-time NCAA Champion, UCLA Women’s Gymnastics team and uses gymnastics as an avenue through which to teach valuable life lessons. She began her career as a professional ballet dancer and choreographer. Although never a gymnast herself, she’s transferred to her student-athletes all she learned in the world of classical dance.
She’s coached hundreds of elite athletes, including Olympic champion Simone Biles and the recent ‘perfect 10’ gymnast, Katelyn Ohashi. Her book, Life is Short, Don’t Wait to Dance: Advice and Inspiration from the UCLA Athletic Hall of Fame Coach of 7 NCAA Championship Teams, was released last Fall.
