INFORMATION

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident by using a fun experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity-based, positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-5th grades. We teach life skills through dynamic interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5K run. The goal of the program is to unleash confidence through accomplishment while establishing a lifetime appreciation of health and fitness.

Girls on the Run of Sioux Falls is an Affiliate Council of Girls on the Run International, which has a network of over 200 councils across the United States and Canada.

MISSION: We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.

VISION: We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Become a Girls on the Run Coach!

Girls on the Run and Heart & Sole strive to help every girl activate her limitless potential and ensure that she is free to boldly pursue her dreams. You can help make this possible by becoming a GOTR Coach and making an investment in the life of a girl! Each season, Girls on the Run has a dynamic group of coaches that volunteer their time to guide and mentor girls so that they are prepared to become happy, healthy, self-confident adolescents and adults. You do not need to be a runner! Coaches need to be committed to a healthy lifestyle, be individuals that are a positive influence, and are committed to developing and celebrating our GOTR girls.

The Fall 2019 GOTR season will start the beginning of September and end mid-November. Our teams consist of 8 to 20 girls who meet twice a week. Each practice is 75 minutes and led by two fully-trained coaches. Most teams meet after school around 3:00 or 3:30 pm.  As a fully trained coach, you must be at least 18 years old, be available for ONE practice weekly and willing to complete National GOTR Coach Certification training. We will be offer training sessions in August.

Apply today to coach for our 2019 Fall program! We have locations in Sioux Falls and across South Dakota. Two coaches work together each session and 4-6 coaches per school allows schedule flexibility. It is our volunteers that bring this program to life!
