Thank you for your interest! Girls on the Run will begin the 2017 fall season the week of September 18th and run until the season-ending 5k on December 2nd. Our teams consist of 8 to 15 girls that meet two times each week for 75 minutes a session and are led by at least two fully-trained coaches. Most teams begin meeting right after the school day has ended. As a fully trained coach, you must be at least 21 years old and available for BOTH practices per week. Assistant coaches can be 18 years and older and Junior coaches should be 15-17.
When you sign up to be a GOTR coach you’re signing up to change lives. Our coaches come from a range of backgrounds, professions and levels of experience. One thing they all have in common is a passion for helping girls grow. At GOTR we’re committed to equipping our coaches with the skills and knowledge they’ll need to lead their girls through a transformative season. During training, which consists of one hour of online learning and four and a half hours of in-person time, you’ll learn about building GOTR style relationships, creating an environment girls can thrive in and developing a climate in which all girls are celebrated for their personal growth. You’ll also get the chance to practice leading a GOTR lesson, meet other coaches, share your expertise and have some fun. We look forward to seeing you there!
