Each season Girls on the Run Montgomery County identifies and selects a dynamic group of coaches to lead each of our teams of 8-20 girls. Coaches are parents, teachers, school administrators, college students and other community members who are committed to developing and celebrating our girls.
The Coach Lead is a volunteer position that works with a team of coaches to facilitate the Girls on the Run curriculum to program participants. This position entails approximately four hours per week for a 10-week commitment.
Coaches supports the Coach Lead at a Girls on the Run program site while serving as a role model and mentor for program participants. The position entails approximately 1.5-3 hours per week for a 10-week commitment.
The Junior Practice Partner is a volunteer position for high school students to assist the Coach Leads and Coaches at a Girls on the Run program site. The position entails approximately 1.5-3 hours per week for a 10-week commitment.
Coach trainings are held at the Johns Hopkins University campus in Rockville.
There are no fees to become a coach. Coaches plan and provide an end of season celebration for their team, and GOTR reimburses approved party food expenses that coaches incur within a budget. We provide all of the supplies and materials needed to facilitate the lessons. Coaches receive a free entry to the GOTR MoCo 5K, and a coach shirt. Coaches also receive a guaranteed and reduced program fee for their daughter (if applicable).
We require that one coach present at each lesson is CPR and First Aid certified. We offer CPR and First Aid courses before each season and we reimburse most if not all fees upon completion. We encourage all coaches to become certified for the safety of participants.
Men are certainly welcome to be GOTR coaches! We have many incredible male coaches leading teams throughout the county. In addition to our male coaches, GOTRI requires that a female coach is present at each lesson.
