The Girls on the Run Las Vegas’ (GOTR) spring season launches the week of Feb. 11, but there is still time for girls to register to join a team and get active this school year. Girls in grades 3 through 8 can register for the program through one of the 33 participating elementary and middle schools OR, for girls who attend a school that does not currently have its own GOTR team, a GOTR representative will make a referral to the nearest team with open slots.
Each team has a minimum of eight and a maximum of 15 girls.
The elementary school program is open to girls in grades 3 through 5 and the middle school program is available to grades 6 through 8. Participants meet twice a week after school for 90 minutes to practice. The program curriculum dates and time vary for each school. The program registration fee includes 20 lessons conducted by nationally-certified GOTR coaches, a healthy snack each session, all class materials, end-of-season celebration party, 5K entry fee for both the girl and her running buddy, a program t-shirt, water bottle and a goody bag.
More than 700 girls across the Las Vegas valley each year participate in the GOTR program which delivers a season-long, experienced-based curriculum designed to develop confidence, friendship, strength and emotional and spiritual health in young girls—all while integrating running. The season culminates with a 5K event where all GOTR participants come together to celebrate girl power.
