Being a GOTR Coach is so much fun! Join a group of coaches at a local elementary school to facilitate the GOTR curriculum to a team of girls one or two times a week afterschool for ten weeks! Each volunteer session lasts approximately 2 hours. Volunteer days and times will depend on the school. All the materials and training needed for a great and successful season are provided by GOTR staff. Girls learn life skills through games, physical activities, and discussion. No running experience needed.

Head coaches must be women ages 21+ who understand and believe in the mission of GOTR. This is a 4-5 hours-per-week commitment for the 10-week season and all head coaches must organize and supervise two weekly lessons, help organize Running Buddies for each girl, and attend the end-of-season 5K to run and cheer on your girls.

Assistant coaches can be men or women ages 18+ who understand and believe in the mission of GOTR. This is a 2-4 hour per week commitment for the 10-week season.
