You will learn that each session is spent half the time leading/managing activities, discussion, crafts, and storytelling and the other half is helping the girls complete their laps. Often the coaches divide up during the laps with one staying at the start point helping with lap counters (usually a fun sticker or marker drawing on the hand), one standing out in a far part of the lap area to encourage girls to keep trying their best and to make sure they're safe, and one jogging alongside different girls as they go. Many of the girls are first time runners and still working on their endurance and confidence. You'll learn that some girls come into the program ready and excited about running and others need to be encouraged to reach their own personal goals each session. Many of our coaches participate in the 5K for the first time alongside their girls, and having a few coaches willing to go slower with certain girls is extremely helpful. Our staff promises that you will feel supported by our staff and energized & inspired by the girls and the program messaging.
