Good Times Start Here

Whether you're a student athlete or coach,
we know you invest a lot of time and sweat in training.

The Garmin Coach program rewards high school and collegiate runners with a $50 rebate on the purchase of a Forerunner® 210 or 610 GPS sport watch that tracks time, distance, pace and more. Athletes gain valuable feedback and motivation by using the watches for training runs. For post-workout analysis, student athletes and coaches can use our free website, Garmin Connect, to store, plan and share their runs. They can also access free training plans and create groups for sharing activities, announcements and more.

Get $50 Back, Gain Motivation for the Team
  1. Purchase an eligible Garmin running watch from a local sports retailer.
  2. Complete a rebate form for a $50 rebate.

Your workout's hard. Your watch should be easy.

With a sport watch from Garmin, you can see your time, distance, pace, lap splits and more. Just press a button to start the timer and run with it. The watch does the rest, including automatically recording laps, automatically pausing and restarting the timer for stops and starts, plus storing every minute of your workout for review later.

It's the same technology used by elite marathoners like silver medalist Meb Keflezighi and Desi Davila. And now you can have it all at your fingertips.

Who can purchase a Garmin watch for a student athlete?
The student, parent, guardian, family member or coach can purchase the device. However, a copy of the athlete's student ID must be sent in with the rebate form (limit 1 per athlete).

How can a coach benefit from the program if not all of their team members are using Garmin devices?
A coach can benefit from visibility of athlete performance at the Garmin Connect website even if only a few of their student athletes have a Garmin sport watch. The coach no longer has to manually record data for student athletes who use a Garmin watch and upload to Garmin Connect.

Can GPS-enabled Garmin watches be worn during a race?
Rules vary by state and event. Check with your coach or your district's athletic association rules.
