Girls on the Run Seeking Coaches

| June 27, 2016

Girls on the Run of Northern Arizona is looking for Coaches!!

Are you passionate about healthy living, empowering girls to be their best, brightest selves, and giving back to your community?! If so, Coaching for Girls on the Run might just be the perfect fit for you!

Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a physical activity-based, positive youth development (PA-PYD) program that inspires 3rd through 8th grade girls to recognize their limitless potential and boldly pursue their dreams. The 10-week Girls on the Run program, which is led by volunteer coaches (that’s you!), focuses on helping girls develop key life skills, such as cultivating confidence, responding to oneself and others with care and creating positive connections. The teams also learn the value of giving back to their community through a service project. Girls on the Run is non-competitive and works to help each girl achieve her goal. Each season culminates with a 5k event that celebrates girls’ growth during the season.

  • As a GOTR Coach you will work closely with your team of girls and fellow Coaches. You will all have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of girls in your community, not to mention the tutus, glitter, beads and, oh yeah, cheers….lots of cheers!
  • As a GOTR Coach you will be trained on the GOTR curriculum where you will learn how to work with the girls on important topics such as making friends, healthy relationships, inner beauty, and healthy nutrition, all while creatively integrating running. For example, the girls may have to answer questions about the day’s topic each time they complete a lap, while you and your coaching team are encouraging and cheering the girls on.

GOTR Coaches do not have to be runners! You just have to be enthusiastic and have a desire to work with girls of this age group. Women and Men over 18 are welcome to apply. We can’t wait to have you as part of the GOTR team!
