Can I coach a team with my daughter on it?
Yes. If you are a head coach or an assistant coach, your daughter will receive 75% off her registration fee across (all income levels.).
Can I choose the site where I coach?
Coaches may indicate a preference for the site at which they would like to coach. If coaches do not have a preference, we will assign them to a location in need of volunteers.
Do I have to be a runner to coach?
No. No running experience is required. Coaches facilitate a pre-planned curriculum (which includes workouts, stretches, and programming). You may choose to run with your team or take a lap here and there, but it's not required!
We've actually introduced many reluctant "non-runner" coaches to running!
Will I be reimbursed for coaching expenses?
We will provide all of the curriculum and program materials.
Each team receives a site allowance. Coaches must submit all receipts related to program expenses at the end of the season and will be reimbursed for an amount not to exceed the site allowance.
