Taking on the role of Team Mom or Cheer Mom can be a time consuming job if you are not organized right from the start! Take advantage of our pre-made checklists available to you or create your own.

Team-Mom List

Attend Team Mom Meeting.

Typically, at the start of every new season, SFL will hold a Team Mom meeting to inform you of all the events and important information throughout the season. This is a meeting you do NOT want to miss! You will learn about pictures, uniforms, game schedules, expectations and more. All of this information will need to be conveyed to the families on your team, so make it a priority to attend!

COMMUNICATION:

Communication is key in Team Mom Leadership. People need frequent reminders about practices, games, snacks and more.

Start By Gathering The Following Information From Each Player:

Print a Contact Information Sheet and fill in the information.

Name

Jersey Number

Parent Names

Email Addresses

Phone Numbers

Send out a "Welcome Email"

Introduce yourself to the team families and highlight the important information they need to know about the upcoming season. Including:

Uniforms

Pictures

1st Team Parent Meeting

Uniform Distribution

SFL will have a day scheduled to distribute uniforms to players. Team Moms will need to be present to help organize your team for pickups- Parents must pick up and sign for their uniforms.

 

Hand out Picture Order Forms

SFL's Community Day is tentatively scheduled for August 25th. Team and Individual Photos are set to be included on this day. Parents must turn in photo order forms and pay for photos before they are taken.

 

Send Out Snack Schedule.

I have found it is best to assign each family a game to bring snacks. If a family has a conflict with the date assigned, ask them to trade with another family and inform you of the change. This system is faster than asking families to sign up. Each game will need a healthy half time snack and an end of game snack assigned to two separate players.

Find Scorekeepers.

Ask for a handful of parents that can rotate operating the clock and scoreboards, running chains, etc. and assign them games at the beginning of the season. The coach may take on this responsibility, but if he/she "delegates" this task to you, at the very least, have the coach assist in this communication. Training will be available for running scoreboards.

Before Each Practice or Game Send Out A "Reminder Email"

Let's face it; family/work schedules can be hectic so it is helpful to receive reminders. The team mom usually will send the practice/game schedule each week and/or on the day of the event. This can be a time consuming process, so to keep everything neat and orderly, I have included a printable calendar that you can fill in with all practice times and locations. Refer to this calendar before sending out your email. Also, another good option instead of email is to send group texts (this is especially helpful when providing weather-related updates or last minute location changes).

SFL Carnival

SFL has a Carnival every year to help teams raise money for their end of year parties. Teams have the opportunity to set up a booth and run it during the SFL Carnival with two foods and two games. All monies earned for your booth will be given to you for your team's end of year. Team moms will have a special carnival meeting to choose foods and games and to go over all of the details and information for carnival day.

Organize the End of Season Team Party

This is a great time to recruit some other moms and dads to help you. The kids really love just hanging out together, so nothing super fancy is necessary, but a few ideas are:

A local park

Swim Party

Cook-out at a team member's home

Go out for ice cream right after the last game is over

Meet at a local pizza joint for dinner

Parents vs. Players Game & Dessert Pitch-In

All Team Parties must be submitted to SFL Board and approved.
