Coach Spotlight: Gab Haskell

This week, we take a moment to speak with Gab Haskell, Head Coach at one of our public school sites in Brooklyn, about her experiences with Girls on the Run NYC. Kudos to Gab for bringing her fantastic energy and dedication to our program! Coach Gab is in her second season with Girls on the Run, and shared the following with us:

My favorite thing about coaching is the enthusiasm of the kids, and seeing them attain a sense of accomplishment through the program.

The girls gain confidence being in the program, and learn good strategies for dealing with life’s challenges that they can take with them.

This semester we’ve had the girls take turns leading the stretching and other warm up exercises, which they seem to really love.
