Bubb Girls on the Run Coaches Needed for 2019 Season
Thu, Sep 20 2:49pm
Bubb Elementary

Hello Families, 


We are looking for new volunteer coaches so we can continue the Girls on the Run team at Bubb Elementary.  


We currently do NOT have any coaches for the 2019 Season of Girls on the Run. We have had Girls on the Run here as an after school club for the last 7 years and this is the first year we don't have any female parents to lead the group. All of the past coaches have moved on with their students to middle school.  I was a coach for one year, but it has since always been better for me to just be a champion and supporter of the club, hence me reaching out to you! 


Are YOU interested in helping girls lead joyful, healthy and confident lives? If so, please consider coaching. If we are unable to find new coaches, we will have to cancel the team at Bubb for the 2019 season. Everyone who submits an application by September 21 will be entered into a special coach raffle. Otherwise, applications are due by October 1.  The Girls on the Run Season is March through May 18. So, please let me know if you're interested as soon as possible.


What are the benefits of coaching?


Coach Perks:

  • The experience of changing a girl’s life!

  • Selecting the days and times of GOTR practices that work for YOUR schedule

  • Guaranteed spot(s) on the team for your daughter(s)

  • Discounted program registration for your daughter

  • Complimentary coach entry for the Girls on the Run 5K on May 19

  • Coaches who have 2nd grade daughters may register their second graders for the team (all other participants must be in the 3rd through 5th grades)

Girls on the Run will provide coaches with everything they need for a successful season: coach training, exceptional curriculum that is basically a script, all of the materials needed for each lesson and coach support from Girls on the Run staff.
Here are the links for the coach and site applications



Thank you for taking time to consider being a Girls on the Run coach! This program is all about helping our third through fifth grade girls gain confidence, grow healthy habits, and develop friendships! You DO NOT need to be super into fitness or running! You just need to be able to lead the girls through the scripted lessons and activities each week and be able to walk (skip, dance, or  run) the course as they do their 30 minutes of exercise / running time. 


If you have questions, please stop by room 10, or email me at lshephard@mvwsd.org. I can get you in contact with the past coaches if you have any questions!
