Girls on the Run: Calling All Coaches!
We are planning for another great Girls on the Run season at the Ray School. In order for us to host this program, we will need about 8 coaches. A coach is a volunteer position that works with a team to facilitate the Girls on the Run curriculum to program participants in grades 3-5. This position entails approximately four hours per week for a 9-week commitment. Practices will be held on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:00pm-4:30pm. Our spring season will begin the week of March 4th if we have enough coaches. Girls on the Run VT Central 5k will be Saturday, May 11 at Castleton University.
Lauren Amrhein will continue as Head Coach this year. Other coaching positions include assistant coaches and junior coaches. Coaches do not need to be runners. Coaches come from varied backgrounds to mentor young girls and help them find their limitless potential!
- Serve as a role model for program participants
- Prepare, organize and supervise weekly lessons
- Collaborate with other coaches for successful lesson delivery
- Facilitate communication with parents/guardians of program participants
- Participate in the Girls on the Run 5K
- Plan and coordinate your team’s end of season celebration
We welcome enthusiastic, dedicated and positive volunteers who are committed to empowering girls with valuable life lessons. Coaches are parents, teachers, college students, and other community members who are committed to developing and celebrating our girls. Please contact Lauren Amrhein at email@example.com with questions or to sign up.
