Teams meet two times per week outside of school for 90 minutes and are led by two to three coaches, trained by Girls on the Run staff. Most programs begin directly after school, with the exception of the occasional evening or Saturday site. Coaches may indicate a preference for the site at which they would like to coach within the online application. If coaches do not have a preference, our staff will work with the coach to find the best fit for his or her availability and location.
Our volunteer coaches need not be runners (all are welcome!) and Girls on the Run will provide a thorough training along with the materials and support needed for a successful season! Included with information and tips on working with, and motivating adolescent girls, our training will cover organizational policies, procedures and "sneak- peeks" at various lessons within our curriculum. The program finishes with a celebration event that includes a 5K run/walk.
