GOTR Coach

Coaching a Girls on the Run program is the most rewarding way to get involved with Girls on the Run of the Grand Strand. Volunteer Coaches serve as role models and mentors for the girls who participate in GOTR programs around the Grand Strand area.  We are currently recruiting coaches to volunteer at all of our sites.  Please fill out the coach application below and we will be in contact with you shortly!

GOTR Coach Application

Coach Requirements

  • GOTR coaches must be 18 years old
  • All coaches must complete a background check and become CPR/First Aid certified. GOTR will reimburse Coaches for the cost of both and assist in providing arrangements for certification
