Volunteering as a coach is the most rewarding way to get involved with Girls on the Run. Our volunteer coaches lead their teams through the Girls on the Run-developed curriculum, stretching and running activities, and training for the end-of-season 5K event. You do not need to be a runner or a competitive athlete. Successful coaches need only serve as a role model for girls by showing up prepared and on time, listening attentively, and by demonstrating a positive attitude! Before making a commitment to coach, please consider the following:
- Teams meet twice a week for 75 minutes.
- Practices are held either after school between 2:45 and 5:00 p.m. or at local YMCAs between 5:30 and 7:15 p.m.
- The season is 10 weeks long and the girls need you during that entire time period.
- Coaches must attend one GOTR Coach Training session and one CPR/First Aid certification course (if the coach is certified through the upcoming season).
