Girls on the Run is looking for Volunteer Coaches:

Girls on the Run is coming back to Wallace Park in April. Chapman girls in 3rd – 5th grade participated in the fall with two teams at Wallace Park. It was a great way to get the girls outside, keep moving their bodies and socialize while wearing a mask and social distancing. 

We are looking for volunteer coaches for the upcoming season. We need 3 coaches per team. You must be 18 years of age to coach. If anyone knows any local Lincoln High school students or college students looking for volunteer hours, please pass this along as they qualify to be assistant coaches.  It is a great opportunity to get experience empowering young girls. 

If you are interested in coaching, learn more here and fill out this application. Coaches Applications are due by April 1st. 

Registration opens on Feb. 15th

Practices will be Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 – 6:00 pm at Wallace Park. Our first practice is the week of April 12th.

We’d love to have your girl involved and we are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all girls. Financial aid is available to any girl who needs it.
