Girls on the Run of Southwest IN Spring Coaching Opportunities

Girls on the Run of Southwest Indiana’s spring season Coach Registration is now open. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based, positive youth development program that inspires girls in 3rd through 8th grade to be joyful, healthy and confident. The eight-week program incorporates physical activity to teach critical life skills, encourage personal development, foster meaningful connections with others as well as contribution to the community - activities and skills that are necessary and valuable in both National and personal recovery efforts. Volunteer coaches will utilize a structured curriculum to engage teams of girls in fun, interactive lessons. Teams meet twice a week for 75-90 minutes and the program culminates with all girls completing a physical activity challenge/5k event. 

Coaches do not need to be athletes but are required to be a minimum of eighteen years old to serve as an assistant or twenty-one years old to serve as a head coach. All volunteer coaches must complete a background check and attend a training session.
