Volunteer Coaches Need for "Girls on the Run"


We are determined to bring the Girls on the Run program to George Long for our 13th year. Each Girls on the Run team (8-20 girls) requires two volunteer coaches. The more coaches we have, the more girls we can serve!

You don’t have to be a runner to be a coach - coaches simply must be passionate about the mission of Girls on the Run, committed to working with a group of girls twice a week for ten weeks, and bring positive energy to each practice.

Volunteer coaches are required to attend an exciting half day training on Saturday, March 2nd. The season begins the week of March 4th and runs until May 17th.Volunteers coach twice a week for 90 minutes for ten weeks. The culminating Girls on the Run 5K event is scheduled for Saturday, May 11th. The Girls on the Run staff will provide the training, curriculum, supplies and support.
