The team that is considered among UCLA Athletics’ best, if not the best – the UCLA Bruins Women’s Gymnastics team – is starting their season!
And it will all commence with an event called “Meet The Team” this Sunday, December 11, at the John Wooden Center on Campus at 2:00 p.m., with admission being free. There will be team photo cards given out to the first 1,000 fans.
Fans are also urged to bring either an unwrapped children’s gift or a non-perishable food item to this shindig, as they will be delivered to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and the Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA.
This event will feature a short lesson on college gymnastics and how it’s played and scored, what the four events are that constitute a meet, and exhibitions from the gymnasts, including a preview of what their floor exercise routines will be.
There will even be music provided by the UCLA Alumni Band, which has been the official band of the Bruin Gymnastics team since 2003.
And there will also be a post-event autograph session with the Bruin gymnasts at the end.
Being these Bruins, led by longtime coach Valorie Kondos Field – better known as Miss Val to the UCLA community – are ranked as the number one team in the country in the preseason and are among the favorites to win a national championship, which would be their seventh, this is one event that should be checked out.
Hope to see everyone in Bruin Nation there!
