GIRLS ON THE RUN PHILLY
you looking for a way for your elementary or middle school aged girl to
stay active and have opportunities for socialization this fall while
schools are closed? Girls on the Run Philadelphia
is adapting to meet the needs of girls and families in these
unprecedented times, and we're looking for parents, coaches, and
community members interested in forming neighborhood-based Girls on the
Run teams of up to 12 girls this fall. This is also a great opportunity
for sports teams that aren't able to have a regular season this fall but
still want an opportunity to remain connected and active.
train coaches for free to implement our research-based curricula, which
includes dynamic discussions, activities and running games. Over the
course of the eight-week program, girls in 3rd-8th grade develop
essential skills to help them navigate their worlds and establish a
lifetime appreciation for health and fitness. The program culminates
with girls positively impacting their communities through a service
project and being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a
celebratory 5K event. We will work with coaches to ensure teams that
meet in-person follow health and safety guidelines, including social
distancing, and we also have an all-virtual option. Coaches will be
responsible for attending a virtual coach training and supporting with
recruitment and registration of girls on their team.
