Girls on the Run

Grade levels: 3rd, 4th and 5th
Practice days at Amelia Earhart Elementary (open to all Alameda girls): Wednesdays 4:30-5:45 pm and Saturdays 9:00-10:15 am

Girls on the Run uses the power of running to build healthy, confident girls. Our nationally recognized social/emotional curriculum is designed to build skills in the “6 C’s:” Confidence, Competence, Caring, Connection, Character, and Contribution. We keep our team size small (16 girls) to give each girl the chance to speak up, find her voice, and create emotional safety around sensitive lesson topics such as Exploring Emotions and Communicating with Others.

Trained volunteer coaches facilitate our curriculum, which encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Physical activity is woven into each practice, to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health.

Each practice consists of a discussion-based lesson, movement-based games, and a running workout. Girls train to complete the end of season Girls on the Run 5K run/walk event in Golden Gate Park, where girls from all of our Bay Area teams come together to cross the finish line!
