Girls on the Run Coaches touch the lives of girls in a significant way, inspiring them to grow joyful, healthy and confident through a fun, interactive curriculum that creatively integrates running. You do not have to “be a runner” to be a GOTR coach! Girls on the Run will provide everything you need: pre-season and mid-season training, a step-by-step curriculum to follow, all materials and supplies. You provide your time, energy and enthusiasm!
The Girls on the Run program runs from late February through mid-May, with a celebratory 5K event on Saturday, May 9, 2020. Each team meets after school twice a week during that time and potentially the week following the 5K for final team meetings. Locations and start times vary but are within St. Joseph, Elkhart, Fulton, Kosciusko and Marshall counties in Indiana. Coaches use a step-by-step curriculum to lead a group of 8-15 girls through each 90-minute lesson. Each team has 2-4 trained coaches. Some additional prep/arrival time may be necessary, for an average of four hours total commitment each week (two 90 minute practices, curriculum prep, arriving 10 minutes before practice begins and taking turns with your coaching team to ensure all girls are picked up at the end of practice).
