Opening a Site FAQs

Complete the site application and be sure that you meet all the criteria to insure a successful program


Parent and school district support are critical for the success of a site. Having a volunteer base is critical as well.


Volunteer coaches are the backbone of the program. We require two coaches for every 15 girls on a team and three coaches for every 20 girls on a team. You will need to demonstrate that you have commitment from your volunteers before being granted permission to open a site.


Girls on the Run of the Greater Susquehanna Valley is committed to providing the support to insure a successful program with a positive experience for all involved. We work closely with Girls on the Run International to deliver the curriculum with integrity and to use the most effective strategies as we strive to inspire the girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We collaborate with those at the local level who wish to join us in our mission and will provide the support and guidance along the way.
