Girls on the Run of WNC currently hosts the program in 14 counties of Western North Carolina: Buncombe, Clay, Cherokee, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey. A site can be a school, parks & rec facility, fitness center, community park, or many other possibilities. If you are interested in starting a site outside our jurisdiction, please contact our national office, www.girlsontherun.org for more information.
Returning site registration for the Fall 2017 session closed on June 1.
We are accepting new site applications until August 1! Please contact Program Director Stephanie Bilotta at email@example.com or 828-713-3132 for a site application.
Upon receiving the site application, our Program Director will review the application and be in touch to arrange a site visit and work out the final details. All applications are subject to prior approval. A submitted application does not guarantee the program will be offered.
The Site Liaison, Head Coaches, & Assistant Coaches need to complete the online application.
View our Site Support page to download & edit materials for your site, both recruitment/promotional materials AND your team's calendar. The calendar is very important! You'll need to list out each date of lesson with lesson # & cross-reference with your school's calendar (closings/early releases) so that your team is sure to get 20 lessons completed in the session. Your team may need to adjust lesson days in order to accommodate the scheduling conflicts.
Once the site is approved, it remains important to communicate with the Program Director regarding training, coach needs, and site needs during the participant registration process. We are here to support and help your site get the program started!
Contact our Program Director, Stephanie Bilotta, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 828-713-3132 with any questions or for more information.
