You don’t need to be a runner to experience the rewards of coaching FAB Girls.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a FAB coach. As a coach, you will make a difference in the lives of young girls by teaching them the skills to reach their goal of crossing the finish line, and helping them become strong women. We hope you will find coaching FAB Girls a very rewarding experience!
