Site Interest Application

Thank you for your interest in bringing a Girls on the Run (GOTR) program to your local school or facility! Girls on the Run is a character development program for girls, ages 8-12, that uses physical activity as a tool to introduce healthy lifestyle choices. The focus of the program is on increasing the girls’ self-respect and enhancing their self-esteem and confidence through an experienced based curriculum facilitated by Coach Mentors. We host programs in the Spring and Fall seasons. The season runs for 10 weeks, with the girls meeting twice a week for an hour and 30 minutes each session.

Girls on the Run of the Grand Strand is currently located in 8 sites across Georgetown and Horry Counties. We are eager to expand our programming and reach more girls with our message of joy, healthy and confidence. In order for our program to grow and succeed, we require a strong and active commitment from our local site partners. The following items are required of all sites interested in becoming a Girls on the Run of the Grand Strand location:

  • All sites are required to recruit two coaches to serve as coach mentors and implement the GOTR curriculum at their location. Coaches must be women 18 years of age or older. Coach applications can be found on our website.  The Girls on the Run of the Grand Strand office will be responsible for training, communicating with, and providing all the materials your coaches will need to confidently implement the program.
  • All sites must identify a specific Site Contact who is responsible for communicating with the GOTR Council Director, identifying days and times of programming, helping to publicize the program at their location, and signing the program agreement. Site Contacts may also be asked to serve as a substitute at their location.
  • All sites are asked to help identify girls in need of financial assistance to participate in our program. We provide scholarships at any location.  You may request more if a need is identified. (The GOTRGS registration fee is $150.  Scholarships are offered on a sliding scale ranging from $10-$125 depending on financial information provided by the family.)

If you feel your site can commit to our program expectations, please fill out the form below. Our Council Director will contact you within a week of receiving your Interest Application to set up a site visit. We accept Site Interest Applications throughout the year. DEADLINE for Spring 2018 Season Applications: January 1, 2018.
