Empower Girls as a Coach at Glen Canyon Park this Spring!

Now more than ever, girls need a way to get active and connect with their peers in a healthy and supportive space. Girls on the Run Bay Area provides a safe and fun solution for 3rd-8th graders, but we need coaches to lead our teams at Glen Canyon Park and throughout San Francisco this spring!

Our coaches are mentors and motivators who encourage joyful movement but don't have to be runners themselves. We’ll provide you with training, curriculum, and supplies- everything you’ll need to coach a safe, successful season and help the girls in your community activate their limitless potential!

Safety Modifications: The safety of our participants is a top priority for Girls on the Run. We will continue to support girls in an updated, safe environment:

  • We have limited our team size to up to 16 girls who will meet at their site twice a week for 8 weeks, with the possibility of transitioning to virtual programming depending on weather conditions and public health directives.
  • We provide training on how to successfully facilitate in a virtual and in-person format.

Coach Role:

  • Serve as a role model and mentor for the participating girls
  • Prepare & collaborate with your co-coaches to facilitate twice-weekly lessons
  • Attend both weekly practices
  • Participate in the Girls on the Run 5K
  • Have fun motivating your girls to become healthy and confident!

Coach Qualifications:

  • Interest in inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident!
  • Able to complete a background check and coach training
  • Able to dedicate approximately 5-7 hours a week for 8 weeks from March-May
