What

Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia is looking for coaches across our area for our Fall 2019 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 10 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 10 week season, with additional time required for Coach Training and the GOTR 5K race.

At Armstrong Elementary School, we are in need of a Head Coach and two Assistant Coaches! This team practices Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:45-5:00pm.

"I am so thankful that this program exists in Northern Virginia. Every year I coach it just gets better and better and we are more equipped to make an impact on the lives of these girls!" -- GOTR NOVA Coach
