Each season Girls on the Run has a dynamic group of coaches who selflessly volunteer their time to guide and mentor girls so that they are prepared to become happy, healthy, self-confident adolescents and adults. Coaches need not be runners; they just need to be individuals who want to be a positive influence and who are committed to developing and celebrating our youth.
As a coach, you are committing to volunteer approximately 90 minutes 2 times a week, with additional time for coach training, mid-season coach meeting and the Celebratory 5K. Girls on the Run teams are grades 3-5 (GOTR) and grades 6-8 (Heart & Sole). Practice days and times vary by location.
The 2018 spring season begins the week of March 12, 2018 and ends with the Celebratory Girls on the Run 5K on Friday, June 1, 2018.
Coach trainings - All NEW coaches (GOTR (3rd-5th grade) and Heart & Sole (6th - 8th grade) must be able to attend one of the 4 hour training sessions in February or March 2018. RETURNING coaches must have attended a coach training in 2017 to be considered a returning coach. Returning coaches will need to complete the required Learning Academy modules.
