Spectators will be treated to exhibition performances from the three-time NCAA champion Bruins, which feature defending NCAA all-around, vault and floor champion and 2000 U.S. Olympian Jamie Dantzscher, 2001 NCAA all-around champion Onnie Willis and 2000 Olympians Kristen Maloney, Alyssa Beckerman, Yvonne Tousek and Kate Richardson. Also taking place during the exhibition will be question and answer sessions with the gymnasts and UCLA head coach Valorie Kondos Field. Fans will also be given a crash course in Gymnastics 101 - an educational look at the construction of gymnastics routines.
After the exhibition, spectators can obtain autographs and have pictures taken with the Bruin gymnasts. Season ticket and support group membership information will be available throughout the afternoon.
