The first step in becoming a Coach (after completing our Coach application) is to complete our GOTR Coach Training, which will provide you with all the information and skills you need to be a superstar Girls on the Run Coach! By completing this training, you’ll be ready to deliver our experience-based curriculum to inspire kids in your community to be joyful, healthy and confident.
This training consists of both an online and in-person component. All new Coaches must complete both the online and in-person portions of training prior to coaching a team.
- PART 1: These self-paced, online training modules take about 3.5 hours and must be completed before you attend the in-person training.
- PART 2: Council staff members lead the in-person training session which lasts about 3 hours. There are several available dates for in-person training (in late Feb & early March) & new Coaches must attend ONE session. More details can be found in the Coach application.
Once you have completed Parts 1 and 2, you will be a certified Girls on the Run Coach!
