Registration Fees

Girls on the Run of Southeastern Wisconsin is committed to being accessible to any girl who wants to participate and are dedicated to ensuring that program cost is never a barrier to participation.  The actual cost per girl is $230+, but we work to subsidize each girl’s participation so that no one is asked to pay the full amount.  The maximum program fee is $175, which means no one will be asked to pay more than that amount.  Depending on your site's free/reduced lunch rate, your location may have a lower maximum fee ($75 for partial scholarship sites and $20 for full scholarship sites).  We offer financial assistance to any family in need.  Families can select a payment plan during the registration process.  Anyone unable to pay the full fee can simply enter the amount they are able to pay and receive financial assistance automatically and confidentially.  

Program fee per girl includes:

  • 10 weeks/20 lessons led by trained GOTR volunteer coaches
  • Curriculum and lesson materials
  • Program t-shirt and water bottle
  • Entry into the end-of-season event and finisher's medal
  • Program fees also help us to ensure participant safety by providing background checks for every volunteer, CPR/First aid training for coaches, and liaibility insurance for all sites.  
  • Fees also help support a family-focused 5K event.
Lottery Registration

Girls on the Run of Southeastern Wisconsin uses a lottery registration system to allow all girls the same opportunity to participate in Girls on the Run.  CLICK HERE to read our Lottery Registration FAQ. 

Registration will open on August 22nd at 9 AM and will remain open through 11:59 PM on August 28th.   Registration will temporarily close on August 29th while we run the lottery.

If a team is over capacity at the time of the lottery, girls will be randomly selected and placed on the team.  Remaining girls will be placed on the team’s waitlist. Your credit card will only be charged if your girl has a place on the team.

If a team is under capacity at the time of the lottery, all girls will be placed on the team and your credit card will be charged.

After the lottery selection process, registration will re-open for teams with remaining space, and girls will be placed on the team on a first-come, first-served basis until the team reaches capacity.

 

Financial Aid

We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all girls. Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any girl who needs it.  The online registration form will ask if financial assistance is needed. Indicate 'yes' on the form and financial aid options will be presented on the final checkout page of the registration form. Please contact the Girls on the Run Southeastern Wisconsin program team at program@girlsontherunsoutheasternwi.org regarding financial assistance.

My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving forward!

Is it important for participants to attend both days each week?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your child will be unable to attend all the sessions, please consider joining a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Here’s our attendance policy: It is important to the experiential learning process, group dynamics and each girl’s program experience that all girls participate in all sessions. Any participant who is absent for more than four (4) practices during one season may no longer be eligible to participate in Girls on the Run. 

What does the program fee include?

Though our cost per participant is more than $230, through generous donors we're able to offer programming for $175. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum and supplies, a GOTR t-shirt, a GOTR water bottle, entry into the 5K event and a finisher's medal.  

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to participate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, program scholarships are available to any family who needs it. The online registration form will walk you through financial assistance options.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $100,000 in program scholarships for families in need each year. If you are interested in sponsoring other GOTR girls, you can choose to give a financial donation to our organization during the program registration process. Or you can donate here!
