We are excited to grow Girls on the Run to your location! We make building a new site easy for you. Girls on the Run provides all the curriculum and materials you will need to host a team. We also offer support, recruitment materials and training to make the process fun and simple.
Why start a Girls on the Run team? Girls on the Run is changing lives across America! One of the lessons we teach is that each person is valuable and has the power to make a difference. And even you have the power to make a difference! Starting a new team will help GOTR reach another group of girls! These girls will build their self-confidence, reach new goals, and embrace their inner, unique selves…Because Of You! Make a difference today. Find out what it takes to start a new team!
Each site is required to provide the following:
- A safe, dedicated space for running. THIS IS ESSENTIAL! This does not have to be a track. A field is fine. However, there is a need to measure off part of the area for occasions when lessons require running a certain distance.
- A rain location. Indoor, private space, preferably a gym, reserved for GOTR and not in conflict with other programs.
- Determine a plan for identifying participants.
- Recruit a Site Liaison and Head Coach and 2 Assistant Coaches for each team.
