Get up, get out, and come prepare a group of girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. In between (virtual) high fives and lots of laughs, these girls will look up to you as a model of what it means to live confidently. You’ve got it. Help them get it too.
Girls on the Run relies on volunteers to help us coach our programs. Coaches work directly with 3rd-5th graders or 6th-8th graders, teaching them healthy habits and training them for the big 5K race! Each team typically consists of 2-3 coaches and 8-21 girls (team size might be smaller in the fall due to COVID).
Our team is working diligently to plan for both in-person and online scenarios.
Information on coach requirements and expectations is below:
When will teams meet? Teams typically meet twice a week from the week of September 7th through November 9th. Each session is approximately 90 minutes, and most teams meet from about 3:00pm/3:30pm – 4:30pm/5:00pm. Coaches should attend all 20 sessions during the season.
If we cannot meet in person, teams will meet virtually. The program we are currently piloting for a virtual session is designed to be 40 minutes long instead of the traditional 90 minutes. As more information about the next school year becomes available, we will work to ensure you are prepared to lead a great team, whether in person or online. The latest programming model will give us the ability to pivot between in-person and online learning as needed.
