Girls on the Run is in need of volunteer coaches!

Girls on the Run is coming to a school near you and we need Coaches!
  • Girls on the Run is a 12 week character building fitness program for girls ages 8-11 that uses the power of running to help prepare them for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. The program focuses on building self-esteem and improving emotional and physical health. Along the way, the girls train together to run or walk in a 5K! The program meets immediately after school, two times per week.
  • Coaches do not have to be elite runners. They just have to be women over the age of 18 who maintain a healthy lifestyle and are committed to improving the lives of girls!
  • Coaches must attend one 6-hour GOTR training session and a 2-hour CPR certification if not already certified, both are free of charge.
  • All curriculum and materials are supplied and coaches are provided with a support network and tips along the way.
  • Coaching Girls on the Run is an extremely rewarding experience. It is amazing to see the transformation that occurs in the girls’ self esteem and ability.
  • Schools where coaches are needed for this Fall: Barkley Elementary, East Pikeland Elementary, Schuylkill Elementary, and Holy Family.


If you are interested in volunteering or have questions, please contact Tina Trager at 610-917-9890 ext. 25 or by email at activatepville@pasd.com.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
