About

Warm-up your spirit fingers, lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong and healthy! We are looking for Volunteer Coaches to facilitate our easy to follow curriculum with groups of girls over the course of 10 weeks.


Amidst the conversation, laughter, hugs and energy awards, you will witness transformational change in the girls and don’t be surprised if you realize that you are positively changing as well! The program may end in 10 weeks, but for our coaches and girls, the finish line is just the beginning.
Coach is a volunteer position that works with a team of coaches to facilitate the Girls on the Run curriculum to program participants. This position works closely with the Council Director and entails approximately 4 hours per week with additional time required on two to three weekend days for: training; a community race event; and for First Aid/CPR training, if necessary.

Major responsibilities include: preparing, organizing, and supervising the weekly lessons; leading the program participants through each lesson; serving as a role model and mentor; coaching program participants on proper stretching, running form, hydration and sports nutrition; attending a community running race with program participants and other volunteers; attending 1 Mid Season Coach Appreciation Meeting; interacting with parents of program participants; and understanding and believing in the mission of the organization and program.


The Safety Harbor Community Center team meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:45 pm, starting on 9/26 and ending with 5k on 12/9.


Coaches Training is 8/19.
