Each season Girls on the Run-Sierras identifies and selects a dynamic group of coaches to lead each of our teams of 8-15 girls. Coaches are parents, teachers, counselors, school administrators, college students, retirees, and other community members who are committed to developing and celebrating our girls.
The Head Coach 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.
The Assistant Coach supports the Head Coach 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 Coach is a volunteer position for high school students to assist the Head and Assistant Coaches at a Girls on the Run program site. The position entails approximately 1.5-3 hours per week for a 10-week commitment.
WHEN AND WHERE IS COACH TRAINING?
Coaches are required to go through the national Girls on the Run coach training at least every two years. Additionally, at least one coach from every program must be CPR and first aid certificed. Dates for spring 2017 coach trainings will be announced soon.
CAN I COOSE THE SITE WHERE I COACH?
Coaches may indicate a preference for the site at which they would like to coach and we will do our best to accommodate. If coaches do not have a preference, we will assign them to a location in need of volunteers.
WILL I BE REIMBURSED FOR COACHING EXPENSES?
Each team receives a site allowance. Coaches must submit all receipts related to program expenses at the end of the season and will be reimbursed for an amount not to exceed the site allowance.
