GIRLS ON THE RUN
Welcome to Girls on the Run
Danvers Indoor Sports is excited to host a chapter of Girls on the run for grades 3-5. Girls on the run inspires ALL girls to build confidence and make intentional decisions, while fostering care and compassion for self and others. Our trained coaches will use physical activity and dynamic discussions to build social, emotional and physical skills in every girl while encouraging healthy habits for life. In today’s unpredictable world, the strategies learned at Girls on run are more important than ever.
Girls on the run will meet twice per week for 8 weeks in person (16 lessons). The fee is $235 and includes trained coaches, an Individualized Participant Kit, including a program journal, t-shirt, water bottle, medal, and more! These kits will allow us to deliver our transformative, evidence-based curriculum safely, taking into account social-distancing and health guidelines from the CDC. At the end of the 8 weeks of training, girls can participate in an end of season 5K on November 20th hosted by Danvers Indoor Sports.

Meet Your Head Coaches
I was diagnosed with asthma at the age of 2. As a young child I knew my limitations, but soccer and sport were just as much a part of my life as asthma. While I was limited in some ways, I reveled in the athletic accomplishments that I made over the years and how sports made me feel: confident, determined, strong. It has always been important to me pass along my love of sport and fitness to young children no matter how big or small their own success stories are.
I’ve coached soccer and youth fitness for almost 20 years, I am a kid’s wellness coach, I’ve started an elementary school running club, I’ve lead Girl Scout troops, and ran road races from 5Ks to a half marathon. Being a mom of 3 girls, it has always been important to me to show them that the length of your stride, the power of your kick, the agility of your body, and the breath in your lungs cannot stop you from doing your best.
I’m excited to be working with GOTR and share my experiences, be inspired by young women, and watch them become empowered by their individual successes through sport, fitness and camaraderie.
Alexandra grew up playing soccer but realized her strength was in running. In the seventh grade she transitioned from soccer to cross-country, where she realized that long distance running was where she shined. She went on to run track and cross-country in high school and college. From there she went on to run countless half marathons and then the Boston Marathon. Nowadays, she is running after a toddler!
I am excited to be coaching with GOTR to share my passion for running and encourage the girls to be strong, independent young women.
