Girls on the Run

Grab your running shoes and water bottles and join a Blue Valley Recreation Girls on the Run team! Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), after- school character development program for girls in Grades 3-5.  The mission of GOTR is to educate and prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.  Girls meet twice a week after school for about 90 minutes and each 10-week season (20 lessons) are taught by trained female coaches and deal with such issues as: body image, negative self talk, resisting peer pressure, gratitude, nutrition, substance abuse, making healthy decisions, and contributing to the community.  These life lessons are taught using interactive game combined with training for a non-competitive 5k race.

Coaches
Coaching the Girls on the Run program is the most rewarding way to get involved with Girls on the Run. You will experience the program first hand, feel a sense of accomplishment that you have made a difference in the lives of the girls and have a ton of fun with your team of coaches and incredible girls! Coaches must be 21 or older for lead coaches, and at least 18 for assistant coaches to facilitate the Girls on the Run curriculum to girls grades 3-5. This position works closely with the GOTR staff and involves approximately 4 hours per week with additional weekend time required for coach training; end of season 5k race event; and First Aid/CPR training, if necessary.
