Team Mom Philosophy

I felt it was worth doing a quick post on the basic Team Mom Philosophy and the background behind being a team mom.  

Whether you have been waiting for this moment your entire life or you were voluntold and assigned to the position, you need to keep the same end result in mind - make it fun for the kids and simple for the parents.  If you make this your mantra, you will make it through any season like a champ!

Don't get me wrong, if you're doing your job as team parent well, you will have moments of utter frustration but you will also have moments of a great sense of accomplishment.  

Basic rules to follow as you get started:

- Keep things simple
- Get organized and stay organized
- Keep an open line of communication with parents and coaches
- Be courteous (trust me sometimes this is easier said than done but you can do it!)
- Plan ahead 
- Make it fun!

If you do everything for your team with these principles in mind your team will be a happy team come the end of the season.
