Our programs run twice a week for 10 weeks. We have a spring season and a fall season, and we have two separate programs: one for girls in grades 3-5 called Girls on the Run, and one for girls in grades 6-8 called Heart & Sole. Our ideal locations include elementary schools, middle schools, and community centers. The program location is responsible for providing:
A contact person at the site to coordinate with GOTRHCC and the coaches. Ideally this person will be a site employee but NOT also a coach. The site coordinator will be responsible for distributing registration and program information. GOTR provides all marketing and registration materials.
A safe place for running. Note: This does not have to be a track; a field or gym is acceptable. However, it is necessary to measure off part of that area on occasions when lessons require running at certain distances (e.g. 1 mile, 5k).
A rain site (gym, covered outdoor area, hallway, etc.).
Help recruit at least two coaches to be trained by GOTR. We provide the training, curriculum materials, background checks and CPR/First Aid certification for all coaches. It is mandatory that ALL head coaches be trained and CPR/First Aid certified.
