Program Description

Over the course of 12 days after-school, 4th grade girls work with high school Head Coaches and 8th grade Assistant Coaches on a two-tiered curriculum.  For approximately the first hour after school, girls actively engage in a classroom curriculum that promotes positive self-esteem, interpersonal competencies and healthy lifestyles.  The activities employ various learning techniques, including discussion, writing, reading and crafts.

The second tier of the curriculum is running preparation.  The Coaches lead girls in exercises and practice runs, preparing them to run a 5K on the 13th program day, at the 5K Fun Run.  The 5K Run is completeley non-competitive and fosters healthy exercises and a sense of accomplishment in the girls.
