Fall 2017 Girls on the Run Registration

Locations and schedules subject to coach availability and minimum/maximum enrollments. GOTR does not meet when school is out of session.
 
Sign up early -- $20 late registration fee enacted Aug. 25.
 
Fall Dates
Week of Aug. 21:   
Season begins (no GOTR when school is out)
Sept. 1 to Oct. 5:   GOTR 5K registration open
Oct. 28:                   Metro GOTR 5K at Air Park in Lincoln (9:30 a.m. tentative start)
Nov. 3:                    Season concludes 
Team Capacity
Teams are subject to minimum/maximum enrollments and coach availability. Coach/participant ratios are in effect to ensure safety and quality program delivery. Teams are often capped due to the number of volunteer coaches and space available at the facility. We still need coaches at some sites.
Absentee Policy
Due to the importance of group dynamics and the experiential learning process of the Girls on the Run curricula, girls who are absent for more than four (4) practices during one season will no longer be eligible to participate in Girls on the Run. It is critically important to the efficacy of the girls’ program experience that they participate in both sessions each week. Girls aren't allowed to attend only one day per week.

ALL SITES CONTINGENT ON VOLUNTEER COACHES

We still need coaches at several sites. Get involved to find out why "Girls on the Run is so much fun!"
 
Coaches get great perks, including a guaranteed spot on the team for their daughter(s), 5K entry package, T-shirt,  a coach appreciation gift and the joy of building confidence and character in young girls. 
Coaches must be able to coach two days per week (usually Tuesday and Thursday between 3 and 5 p.m.) during the season. All sites are contingent on volunteers. No part-time candidates, please.
 * 

Select a Site

Sites are listed as city/school district followed by the school/site name. Your daughter will be registered for the team you select; registering for one site and attending GOTR at another location isn't permitted. If you register for the wrong site, a $35 cancellation fee will be assessed. Double-check your registration to ensure you've selected the correct team. If your desired site is closed, don't register for another team unless you plan to attend GOTR at that location.
 
Sites marked with * are open ONLY to girls who attend that school. If your school isn't listed, that site may do on-site registration for its students or GOTR may not have a team there. To bring GOTR to another location next season, visit www.GOTRNebraska.org.
 
Select your desired GOTR site. Sites marked with * are open only to girls at that school. The number of girls allowed on a team at a site is limited based on the number of trained GOTR coaches, space at the facility and curriculum concerns. *

This information will enable councils to determine whether improvements have occurred over the course of the season. No names will be included on the surveys, rather, a code will be assigned to each girl that will only be known by council contacts.
