Fit Girls is coached by parent volunteers and has a community service component. The goal is forward motion - running, jogging, walking...non-competitive.

GENERAL INFORMATION

TRAINING - Mondays and Fridays from (TBD) from 3:15 to 4:30 PM.

All participants meet and check in under the Playground Shade Structure

If there is inclement weather, training will be cancelled.  Coaches will notify parents of cancellation and potential make-up session (tentatively Wednesdays as needed) by 1:00 PM that day.

Please note that girls with a previous commitment that can only attend one day of training per week are eligible to participate.  Coaches will provide suggestions of running exercises to perform on their own.

REQUIREMENTS

Any girl that CANNOT make practice, MUST inform the Lead Coaches ASAP.

All participants must have:

  • Sneakers

  • Water bottle

  • Athletic wear (pants/t-shirt/sweatshirt)

We ask that all participants be picked up PROMPTLY at the end of practice at 4:30 pm. If your girls are walkers or going home with someone else, please let the coaches know.  We want to ensure the safety of all the girls.

 

SAFETY

Also, we will not have access to the school or the nurse, if your child has any medical needs (epipen/inhaler etc), please contact Julie Callahan

We expect that all the girls participating will listen, respect and follow their Coaches' instructions. We will be running through woods, crossing roads etc., and your child's safety is our #1 priority. Any unruly behavior will not be tolerated.
