Rain or shine. Sleet and snow. She is in those stands and on the sidelines. This woman with a fierce glow in her eyes and “survival” bag by her side. You want to talk football? She can hold her own and then some. Looking for stories? She has them. Detailed and heartfelt, she’ll tell you about the first set of stitches and the moment she saw her child take the field with tears in her eyes and pride in her heart.
She is a part of a coalition of women that holds the team together. A woman who views every player as one of her own. She plays the role of advocate for players and fellow parents. She is a champion for safety with her eye trained on the field, constantly watching for anything that may be wrong. She’s one of the team’s most passionate fans and cheerleaders.
She is the team mom.
What doesn’t the team mom do?
Ordering trophies? Done it.
Keeping score? She’s a pro.
Equipment fitting? She knows what fits, what doesn’t and how to check if something is amiss.
Snacks? She coordinates with the other parents and is the reigning champ for running the best snack bar in town.
She has solidified the best way to remove even the hardest of stains, served as team chauffer, hosted multiple team parties, organized team pictures, gathered equipment, raced home to get a mouth guard, and yet she still finds time to cook a nutritious meal for her player and her family.
And that’s not even the half of it. We all know behind every successful team is a great team mom. USA Football and CVS MinuteClinic® wants to honor and celebrate these sideline soldiers.
