Thank you for your
interest in bringing a Girls on the Run (GOTR) program to your local school or
Girls on the Run is a
character development program for girls, grades 3-5, that uses physical
activity as a tool to introduce healthy lifestyle choices. The focus of the
program is on increasing the girls’ self-respect and enhancing their confidence
through an experienced based curriculum facilitated by trained Coach Mentors.
We hold our program in the spring and fall seasons. The season runs for 10 weeks, with the girls meeting twice a week for an hour and 15 min each session.
In order for our
program to grow and succeed, we require a strong and active commitment from our
local site partners. The following things are required of all sites interested
in becoming a Girls on the Run Northeast Kansas Location:
- A safe, dedicated space for running twice a week for 1
hour and 15 min sessions over the course of 10 weeks. A track, field, or
blacktop area is fine.
- A consistent indoor location for inclement weather.
This can be a gym or other space that allows for running.
- Two coaches to serve as coach mentors and implement the
GOTR curriculum at their location. Coach applications can be found on our
website. The Girls on the Run Council Director will be responsible
for training, communicating with, and providing all the materials your
coaches will need to confidently implement the program.
- A Site Liaison who is responsible
for communicating with the GOTR Council Director, identifying days
and times of programming, helping to publicize the program at their
location, and signing the program agreement. Site Liaisons may
also be asked to serve as a substitute at their location.
