Girls on the Run of NOVA

Team Cheer

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of girls in your community? Volunteer to Coach with Girls on the Run of Northern Virginia!


The Oak Street Elementary School team meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:15am to 8:45am starting the week of September 13th and ending on November 21st.


All you need it just 2 - 3 hours each week to make a meaningful impact in the lives of young girls! You don't have to have any running or coaching experience to volunteer with us. Successful coaches only need a desire to inspire and motivate and an ability to be reliable and consistent.

To register as a coach for the Fall 2021 season, you can fill out an application here:
https://www.pinwheel.us/volunteer/index/new-coach-fall-21. If you'd like to help out with this team, please let us know in the application!

Girls on the Run is a youth development program for girls in 3rd through 8th grade that creatively integrates running. The 10-week curriculum-based program helps girls build skills to be strong, confident, and healthy. As a coach, you'll be trained to guide small teams in practice twice a week. You'll lead your team of girls in valuable lessons and teamwork building, while working up to running a 5K at the end of the season.

Coaching a Girls on the Run team is one of the most rewarding ways to get involved with GOTR NOVA. Coaching provides a first-hand experience of the program and a sense of accomplishment, knowing that you have made a difference in the lives of the girls on your team.


If you are interested in volunteering or learning more, please contact Jaimi Taylor at jtaylor@gotrnova.org.
