About Me

Hi, I Am Val Whiting

Val Whiting is former WNBA player and Stanford All-American. She has represented the USA Basketball on several occasions. At Stanford, Val was a part of two NCAA championship teams, three Final Fours and won four Pac-12 Championships. In addition, she graduated Stanford as the Pac-12 all-time leading scorer and rebounder. Some of her honors include, two-time National Player of the Year Finalist, two-time All-American, two-time Pac-12 Player of the Year and ESPY Award Nominee. Naismith Hall of Famer coach, Tara Vanderveer recently said , “Val is probably the best women’s basketball player to ever come out of Stanford.” Val has been featured on FoxNews, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Essence Magazine and ESPN.com.

Even though Val is a mom of two boys, she has a passion for seeing girls empowered through their involvement in sports. Val was awarded the WNBA Cares Community Assist Award and the Mayoral Award for Distinguished Citizen and Outstanding Service to Youth because of her life-skills program for female athletes. This program was also featured in the national media. Val is a Certified Life Skills Instructor. She also serves on the National Advisory Board for the Positive Coaching Alliance. She has mentored thousands of athletes who not only played basketball in college and professionally but also became citizens who contribute positively to their communities.

Val has had many setbacks in her life from getting cut from US National teams to a near fatal car accident to three psychiatric hospitalizations. With God’s grace, she successfully bounced back each time and is now sharing how she accomplished this via her R.E.B.O.U.N.D Principles.

Val was my daughter's first basketball coach and she was not only incredibly professional and knowledgeable about basketball skills and development, she was patient and kind. My daughter was going through a rough time at school and sometimes acted out - Val took the time to speak openly and honestly with me so we could work together to help my daughter. be as successful as she could and we were both proud of her progress.
Karen S.
Val is great. She coached my daughter briefly on a club team, she is a fair and competitive coach, but where I saw her true colors was with private lessons. My daughter was having growing pains, that Oshgood Schlatter thing, and instead of telling her to push through OR come back when you can, Val was creative.She devised a way to work on her skills using alternative methods.
