Parent Information

Adult and Girls celebrating at 5k


We know parents may have a lot of questions about how the program works and what their daughter will experience as an official Girl on the Run. This website has a great deal of information that describes the full scope of Girls on the Run experience, from Our Program, which describes our mission and vision, to 3rd-5th Grade Program or 6th-8th Grade Program , which has an overview of issues addressed during the lessons and the amazing benefits to each and every participant.

An amazing resource for parents is the Grown Up Guide. This guide is designed to deepen your awareness and knowledge of what the girls are experiencing in the program. A general overview of each of the 24 lessons is included as well as questions and conversation starters you can use to reinforce the learning goals of the curriculum.

Scholarships applications for participation in Girls on the Run Vermont will be available at the time of registration for the program, and can be found here.

  • Scholarships are awarded as needed, but may be limited by resources available to the organization.
  • Scholarship applications must be submitted and approved prior to registration.
  • Registration is on a first come first serve basis, and receiving a scholarship does not guarantee a slot on the team roster.

Once your application has been received and approved, a scholarship discount code will be issued to you for use during the online registration process. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, therefore the code is NOT a guarantee that a spot is automatically reserved for your daughter. You must still complete the online registration process.


Policies for Parents/Guardians and Participants 

Absentee Policy: Due to the importance of group dynamics and the experiential learning process of the Girls on the Run/Heart & Sole curriculum, girls who are absent for more than four (4) practices during one season may no longer be eligible to participate in Girls on the Run/ Heart & Sole. It is critically important to the efficacy of the girls’ program experience that they participate in both sessions each week. Therefore, part time (once a week) participation is not allowed without consent of GOTRVT Program Manager.

Late Guardian Policy: Guardians are expected to pick up their child from Girls on the Run/ Heart & Sole lessons at the close of the session, and ongoing tardiness will not be tolerated. If you are tardy in picking up your daughter, you will be verbally reminded of the policy. At the second time, a verbal reminder and written e-mail acknowledgement of the policy will be issued. Upon the third instance, you will be notified that your daughter may no longer be able to participate in Girls on the Run/ Heart & Sole sessions.
