The Girls on the Run (GOTR) Curricula and all components thereof are the exclusive property of Girls on the Run International and Mary W. Barker. Any use or modification of these curricula, or any component thereof, without the express written consent of Girls on the Run International, outside of the scope of the official Girls on the Run program, or for any purpose not specifically designated by Girls on the Run International, is strictly prohibited. Any such violation shall be deemed a breach of copyright, trade dress, and/or any other applicable intellectual property rights held by Girls on the Run International, and Girls on the Run International reserves any and all rights to pursue all available damages at law and in equity against any such violating party under any applicable cause of action.

In the instance that a coach is unable to attend a Girls on the Run or Girls on Track practice, leaving less than two adults present, the GOTR office should be notified immediately. Coaches should never supply their own substitutes without prior discussion with the GOTR staff.

All substitute coaches must have had a
valid background check
through Girls on the Run within the past 24 months and have
completed a Coach Training
within an operation council. If a substitute is acting as Head Coach, the substitute must be
CPR/First Aid certified.
At least one coach
over 21 years of age
must be present at all times.

A girl who meets or can meet the requirements for being a Girl on the Run shall not be denied acceptance based on race, religion, color , national origin, height, weight or disability.

Any child engaged in behavior that threatens the health or welfare of other participants, administrators or coaches will be released from participating in the program as a participant. Threatening behavior may include but is not limited to: physical injury, emotional maltreatment, abuse of prescription or illegal drugs, use of alcohol, carrying firearms or other dangerous items, using any item in a dangerous way, or any other activity determined by a coach or administrator to be threatening of another's health or well being. Girls on the Run Southeast WA, their coaches, and administrators reserve the right to remove from participation any child for any reason that does not fit the mission and goals of the organization.

Girls on the Run volunteers, staff and outside individuals and organizations are not permitted to use Girls on the Run distribution lists in order to solicit items, interest or donations for any use outside of the Girls on the Run program. The information is gathered by GOTR, including but not limited to parent email lists and 5K registration information, is proprietary information and should be managed as such. The soliciting of any of these people, by use of information obtained through GOTR, is not permitted.

Our volunteer coaches' time is valuable, and parents are asked to respect this. Parents/guardians are expected to pick up their child from Girls on the Run lessons
within 10 minutes of the close of the practice

The first time a parent/guardian is tardy in picking up his/her daughter, they should be verbally reminded of the policy.
If a parent/guardian is tardy for a second time, a verbal reminder and written email acknowledgment of the policy should be made.
If the tardiness continues, please contact the GOTR SEWA staff so that we can contact the parents and notify them that their daughter may no longer be able to participate in the GOTR/GOT season.

Due to the importance of group dynamics and the experiential learning process of the Girls on the Run and Girls on Track lessons, girls who are
absent for more than four (4) practices during one season will no longer be eligible to participate
in either program.

It is critically important to the efficacy of the program experience that girls participate in both sessions each week and that parents/guardians be informed prior to registration that girls are not allowed to attend only one (1) session per week.

Each site must have a pre-determined indoor location. Let the girls know at the first meeting where they should go if it is raining and inform the guardians with the location of the alternative site.
Girls on the Run/Girls on Track will be held rain or shine; outside whenever possible or inside at the approved indoor location.
If you are not be able to perform the activities as planned in the space provided, try to adapt the lesson in such a way that the activities might be appropriate for indoors.

Exceptions to this policy include: school closing due to inclement weather, power outages, and/or dangerous road conditions.

Coaches must make every effort to contact participants’ guardians
at least four hours prior to the lesson starting time
if the session is to be canceled.

Girls on the Run volunteers are NOT to transport any participant, outside of immediate family,
in a vehicle when operating in the capacity of a volunteer (coach, assistant coach, etc.). In the instance that transportation of a participant is necessary, Girls on the Run International requires that a signed letter from the parents of the participant(s) is submitted to the Girls on the Run Executive Director at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance. The letter should include an acknowledgment that the volunteer is no longer acting on behalf of Girls on the Run, and that all liability of the council is waived.
A background check is required of ALL adults with direct, consistent contact with participants.

Coaches and volunteers must complete an online Coach Application in order to be included in the Girls on the Run Southeast WA's general liability insurance policy.

Only registered participants should be present during practice. Friends, classmates, or siblings not registered should not be involved with the team during practice times. In addition, coaches' children who are not participants in the program may not be present during practice.

Copies of girls' forms with emergency contact & health information must be kept in the coach binder & accessible during every practice.

Type 1: Minor injury
or event that can be resolved within the Council, such as minor injuries from GOTR related events that do not require professional treatment or transportation issues.

Type 2: Major incident
that involves considerable coordination between GOTR and external resources. Examples include: injuries resulting from GOTR related events that require professional treatment, missing child, or abuse situation.

Type 3: Catastrophic emergency
involving the entire GOTR community and local areas. Immediate resolution of the event is beyond the capabilities of GOTR and local resources, such as natural disasters.

Response Overview for Type 2 or 3 Situations:

1.Stabilize the situation (account for all girls)
2. Acquire information about what happened
3. Make appropriate calls to emergency services, guardian(s) and Executive Director, Sarah McMenamin (in that order)
4. Complete an Accident-Incident Report and submit within 24 hours to the Council for follow-up with guardian(s) and/or emergency personnel.

All participants are asked to pay a registration fee that includes: 20 lessons, snacks at each lesson, GOTR program shirt and water bottle, 5K entry & medal, coach training & background checks, program materials, & liability insurance.

It is our council's policy to ensure that no girl be turned away for inability to pay. If a family needs assistance with the registration fee, please have them contact us so that we can discuss our scholarship and reduced registration fees with them.
