Coach with Girls on the Run at Tuckahoe Elementary!
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. Practice schedules will vary based on team.
At Tuckahoe Elementary, we are seeking both a Head Coach and an Assistant Coach. Practices are held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:45-4:45pm. To apply as a Fall 2019 Girls on the Run of NOVA coach, go to https://www.raceplanner.com/volunteer/signup/new-coach-application-fall-19 .
