REGISTERING YOUR GIRL 

To sign up your girl, please have the following information available: 

  • Parent/Guardian Contact Information
  • Emergency Contact Information
  • Health Information (allergies, medications, etc.)
  • Insurance Information (have insurance card available)
  • Credit/Debit Card, if paying by credit 

Online Registration - Parents/Guardians are able to sign up their girl online any time between February 6 - February 21.

The majority of Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana teams utilize a lottery-based online registration system to ensure a fair and equal process for all girls. While the majority or our sites are lottery-based, there are some that have chosen to be first-come, first-served. For first-come, first-served sites, once the team size is filled (15-20 girls based on number of coaches), registration will be closed and any girls registered thereafter will be placed on a waiting list. 

For lottery-based sites, Girl Placement Day will occur on Tuesday, February 21. This is when the online system will randomly select girls that signed up for a designated location.

  • If your girl is randomly selected, she will officially be registered for that team. If you have chosen to pay by credit/debit card, your card will be charged at that time.
  • If your girl is not randomly selected, you will be notified via email and your credit/debit card will NOT be charged. Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana will work with you to try to find an alternate location or establish another team at the site if possible.

While credit or debit is preferred, you will have the option to pay by cash or check. Payment is due by the first practice date. Checks (no cash) should be mailed to Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana, 2906 Highway Ave, Highland, IN 46322. Cash should be given to the Head Coach at the first practice.

Grant-supported sites will be provided with a discount code by the team coach to utilize during registration.

Paper Registration – Please contact the school for the registration form and additional information as paper registration is managed by the Site Liaison or Head Coach at the school. All completed registration forms and payments are due to the Head Coach by Friday, February 24. Paper registration is first-come, first-serve.

PROGRAM FEE:

Program fee includes: 20 lessons conducted by two certified Girls on the Run Coaches (30+ hours of instruction), lesson materials, a healthy snack at each practice, one Girls on the Run water bottle, one official Girls on the Run Spring 2017 Program t-shirt, one official Girls on the Run Spring 2017 5K t-shirt, end-of-season party, and one entry for the girl to participate in a Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana Spring 2017 5K Event. Our Spring 5Ks will be on May 20 in Highland and May 21 in Chesterton. Each team is assigned to a specific 5K. Please contact your team coach for 5K assignment. 

The full Girls on the Run program fee is $150 per girl. However, we do offer adjusted program fees based on a sliding scale according to family income. When registering your girl, you will have the option to indicate the financial category of your household. The program fee will then be adjusted accordingly. If you have any concerns, don't hesitate to contact us.

ATTENDANCE:

Participation is a twice a week commitment. Please do not register if your girl cannot attend both days. The content of the program is more than just running, so attendance is very important to the integrity of the experience for ALL the participants. If a participant is absent more than 4 lessons, Girls on the Run of Northwest Indiana reserves the right to dismiss the participant from the program with no refund of program fees. Absences due to illness or family emergencies are excused.

TRANSPORTATION:

Participants must be picked up by a parent/guardian within 10 minutes of the close of each practice session. If the participant is identified as a ‘walker’ by the school on a normal school day, they may walk home from practice.

5K RUNNING BUDDIES:

Parents/Guardians are expected to locate a responsible adult (16+ years old) to participate in the end of season 5K alongside their participant. This adult may be a parent, guardian, family member, family friend, or another adult deemed responsible by the parent/guardian. Coaches may serve as a running buddy for up to 2 girls on their team. Coaches may also help you find a running buddy for your GOTR girl. The running buddy will need to register and pay a separate fee to participate in the 5K. Registration for the Spring 5Ks will open on March 20.

accordance with the Girls on the Run mission, vision and core values, all program participants are expected to interact with responsibility, connectedness, gratitude, optimism, joy, intentionality, compassion and an open-heart.
