About this Opportunity

Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia is looking for coaches across our area for our Spring 2021 Season!

Lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong, confident, and healthy! Girls on the Run is a youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade that creatively integrates running. Teams of volunteer coaches are trained to facilitate our easy-to-follow curriculum with small groups of girls twice a week over the course of 8 weeks.

You don't need to be a runner or a competitive athlete to coach! Successful coaches only need to serve as role models for girls by showing up prepared and on time, by listening attentively, and by demonstrating a positive attitude! Coaches are required to commit to 2-3 hours per week for the 8-week season, with additional time required for Coach Training and the GOTR 5K race. Practice schedules will vary based on team. GOTR’s Spring 2021 Season starts the week of March 15th and ends on May 16th. We have both in-person and virtual teams in need of coaches!
