Thank you for checking out the new program everyone is talking about:
Girls on the GLOW!
Girls on the GLOW is open to all girls in grades 1-6 and focuses on building endurance and strength as well as building character and confidence. The program offers fun-filled activities that center around a comprehensive curriculum which includes topics such as goal setting, positive attitude, community, and nutrition. The participants are encouraged to attend weekly practices and take part in the various events and seminars offered throughout the season. There will even be opportunities for some mother/daughter quality time on our calendar, too. GLOW offers a spring session and a fall session.
What do we mean by GLOW? G.L.O.W. stands for Grow, Learn, Offer, and Work, which is what the girls are expected to do at each and every practice. We want every girl to discover her inner GLOW that comes from achieving a goal, as an individual and as a team, through effort, determination and cooperation.
Membership is available through the Mullica Hill Women’s Triathlon Club, a non-profit organization dedicated to preparing women for their own fitness journey. The fee for membership is $30 per season. Registration needs to be completed by a parent and is available on-line. Each participant will receive a Girls on the GLOW t-shirt, a journal, a water bottle, invitations to our special events, and admission to our signature GLOW Runs.
The participants will be grouped by age (Grades 1-3 and 4-6) and a separate group will be available for girls in grades 3-6 who want to train for a 5K (Aspiring Athletes). If necessary, each age group will be broken down into smaller groups of 15-20 girls with one head coach and at least one assistant coach.
We will also have a group available for our “Aspiring Athletes” who want to participate in a 5k or even a youth triathlon. The suggested ages for this group are grades 3-6; however, age shouldn’t be the determining factor in joining this program. Please consult with your daughter and make the decision together based on her goals and fitness level. All Aspiring Athletes should be able to run one mile by the start of the season. A high level of commitment and fitness is expected of these athletes so that they can achieve their goals.
We will meet weekly on Saturday mornings from 10:30-11:45AM. All practices will be approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. A developmental lesson will be presented each week; the physical activities that follow will also focus on the topic to reinforce the lesson while the girls develop their strength and endurance.
Weekly practices will take place at J. Mason Tomlin Elementary School on Main Street in Mantua Township. Throughout the year, we will have special events, such as GLOW Runs, which will be held at Clearview Regional High School on Breakneck Road in Mullica Hill. Each of our GLOW With Mom events will each have its own location. Occasionally, the girls will have the opportunity to participate in a local running event.
Girls on the GLOW meets in the spring and the fall. The girls are encouraged to continue their training throughout the year by logging their activities in their journals.
GLOW WITH MOM
We are excited to include a unique aspect to our program called GLOW With Mom. This part of our program is intended to strengthen the mother/daughter bond at a critical age for our girls. Throughout the season, we will offer opportunities for our girls and their moms to spend quality time together. Examples of past GLOW With Mom events include a cooking lesson, etiquette class/tea party, yoga, zumba and much more. These extra-curricular activities are optional as your schedule allows and may require a separate registration and fee.
Girls on the GLOW needs your help! Each age group will need a head coach, an assistant coach, and a GLOW Mom. The number of volunteers needed will depend on the number of girls that sign up. If you are interested in serving as a head or assistant coach, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Girls on the GLOW is founded by a group of women who are athletes, mothers, professional counselors, teachers and coaches who have a sincere interest, just as you do, in helping our girls find their inner GLOW. We bring our experience and enthusiasm to this endeavor, and we hope that you and your daughters will join us in the journey!
