Volunteer Coach Information for Girls on the Run


Apply today to be a Coach!

  • Our coaches are the leaders our girls look up to as role models of what it means to have self-respect and lead a healthy lifestyle.
  • You don't need to be a runner - you just need to be an enthusiastic mentor for young girls! 
  • We train you prior to the season so you're well equipped to deliver our effective and unique curriculum to your team. 
  • It requires a time commitment of about 4 hours per week to be a coach. 
  • Coaches always have 1 - 2 other coaches working with them at each practice, so you'll have plenty of support while working with our girls. 
  • Our season starts September 2, 2014 and concludes at the end of November. 
  • This is the most rewarding way to be involved with Girls on the Run - we promise!
