Site Interest Application

Thank you for your interest in bringing a Girls on the Run (GOTR) program to your local school or facility! Girls on the Run is a character development program for girls, grades 3-8, that uses physical activity as a tool to introduce healthy lifestyle choices. The focus of the program is on increasing the girls’ self-respect and enhancing their confidence through an experienced based curriculum facilitated by trained Coach Mentors. We hold our program in the spring and fall seasons. The season runs for 10 weeks, with the girls meeting twice a week for an hour and 30 mins each session.

In order for our program to grow and succeed, we require a strong and active commitment from our local site partners. The following things are required of all sites interested in becoming a Girls on the Run of the Big Bend location:

  • A safe, dedicated space for running twice a week for 1 hour and 15 min sessions over the course of 10 weeks. A track, field, or blacktop area is fine.
  • A consistent indoor location for inclement weather. This can be a gym or other space that allows for running.
  • Three coaches to serve as coach mentors and implement the GOTR curriculum at their location. Coach applications can be found on our website.  The Girls on the Run of Big Bend office will be responsible for training, communicating with, and providing all the materials your coaches will need to confidently implement the program.
  • A Site Liaison who is responsible for communicating with the GOTR Program Manager, identifying days and times of programming, helping to publicize the program at their location, and signing the program agreement. Site Liaisons may also be asked to serve as a substitute at their location.

If you feel your site can commit to our program expectations, please fill out the form below. We will contact you within a week of receiving your Interest Application to set up a site visit. We accept Site Interest Applications throughout the year.
