Spring 2018 Registration Materials 

*Unless your site specifies different dates on your site application, participant registration for Spring 2018 is February 12-22. Team Sizes are LIMITED. Registration for all teams will be by LOTTERY, with priority given to registrants previously waitlisted. The last day to register will be Thursday 2/22, and the lottery will be processed on Friday 2/23. All registrants will be notified on Friday 2/23 of their status (on the team or waitlist).*

PLEASE NOTE: We no longer offer the option of paper-only sites. All sites will offer online registration to participants. If a participant does not have access to a computer to register, paper forms can be distributed on a case-by-case basis. Site liaisons will then be responsible for entering the participant's registration online before the lottery is run.

Inclusivity is a Priority of Girls on the Run of WNC.

Each session, we compile the known socioeconomic & race data for the public schools that are hosting the program. Once registration is completed, we are able to review if we are serving an equal representation of our sites' actual makeup. To help us all have an awareness of this important goal, you can review our GOTRWNC Sites & Makeups list to consider when recruiting and registering participants.

Spring 2018 Session Calendar

Please update these calendars using your site's lesson days in conjunction with your site's calendar, taking into account teacher workdays, holidays, spring break, etc, then distribute along with the Welcome Letter to your coaches & team. The session calendar is abbreviated but includes coach/site important dates. The Participant calendars are more detailed to include lesson names & learning goals.
