So, who exactly are these Team Moms?
Well, they’re the dedicated team parents who take on the non-coaching tasks with gusto. Think of them as the multitasking masters, juggling a million things at once. From coordinating schedules to providing unwavering support to the young athletes, they are the glue holding the team together. Whether it’s a baseball, cheerleading, basketball, or football team, Team Moms are the real deal.
Team Mom Duties
Now, let’s dig into the nitty-gritty of what these amazing Team Moms actually do. Their duties can be broken down into four categories:
- Coordinate and communicate with parents and coaches
- Plan team events
- Provide emotional Support
