Lace up your sneakers and get ready to inspire a group of girls to be strong and healthy! Teams of 3-4 volunteer coaches facilitate our easy to follow curriculum with groups of 8-15 girls over the course of 10 weeks. Amidst the conversation, laughter, hugs and energy awards, you will witness transformational change in the girls, and don’t be surprised if you realize that you are positively changing as well! The program may end in 10 weeks, but for our coaches and girls, the finish line is just the beginning. Ready to make a difference and encourage girls to realize their full potential? The first step is signing up. Ready, Set, Coach!

Each season we offer multiple options for coach trianing. The dates for the Fall 2017 season will be announced this spring. Coaches will be asked to register for a training date once they have been assigned to a site.
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 in need of volunteers.
