In the video below, the Women of FOX Sports offer industry advice to aspiring females.
When Coach Valorie Kondos Field speaks, you listen. And boy, can she teach.
Miss Val, as she is loving referred to, is a 7x NCAA Champion coaching UCLA gymnastics, but her list of accomplishments run far beyond the gymnasium.
Kondos Field spent time with the LA84 Foundation Wednesday to celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day by sharing a variety of stories about coaching world class athletes, how to use different motivational tactics and how she approached her personal battle with breast cancer.

When Alyssa Turay decided to play football last fall, she didn’t know at the time how big of an opportunity it truly was.
Turay joined the freshman team at Temecula Valley High School, thanks in part to an invitation from coach Ed Avedissian following the Golden Bears’ first game of the season.
When K Alyssa Turay joined Temecula Valley's freshman 🏈 team, she wasn't sure what to expect.
Teammates welcomed her by building a goal post out of metal pipes because 'we didn't have one.' 🙌🙌
