coach a team

Warm-up your spirit fingers, lace up your sneakers and inspire a group of girls to be strong and healthy. Teams of volunteer coaches facilitate our easy-to-follow curriculum with small groups of girls over the course of 10 weeks. Amidst the conversation, laughter, hugs and energy awards, you will witness transformational change in the girls and don't be surprised if you realize that you are positively changing as well!

team adelaide

Team Adelaide members are a vital resource, supporting our sites and the GOTR mission by conducting site visits throughout the season. Team Adelaide members select specific sites and visit each one once during their scheduled practice time. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to meet other volunteers in their community and experience a lesson being facilitated in the field first hand.
