TheTeams meet two times per week after school for an hour and a half and are led by two coaches, whom we train. Most Heart & Sole teams begin meeting between 2:30 and 4 pm, and Girls on the Run teams generally meet between 3 and 5:30 pm. Coaches may indicate a preference for the site at which they would like to coach. If coaches do not have a preference, we will assign them to a location. We will provide a thorough training for our coaches. Training will cover organizational policies, procedures and "sneak-peaks" at various lessons within our curriculum. Tips on communicating and motivating girls/adolescents will also be covered during training. Valuable life lessons, specifically targeted for this age group, will be modeled after the familiar premises of self-respect, team and community. The program finishes with a celebration event that includes a 5K run/walk.
