Each Team Mom / Dad works out the details of duty with their Team's Head Coach based upon his requests and requirements. However, the basic premise is to do the administrative/organizing for the team to allow the coach to stick to coaching duties. Generally, the Team Mom has the following responsibilities (which can also be delegated to other team parents):

1) Equipment

  • Players/Parents will be notified in July of the designated dates and times to pick up their football equipment. However, once the practice season begins, there are times that items may need to be exchanged or additional items are needed, and occasionally Team Moms & dads help with this activity.
  • Team Moms & Dads assist the coaches with collecting all the equipment at the end of the season and ensure that everything that belongs to the Houston Pride organization has been returned and accounted for.

2) Keep the team informed

A key responsibility is to ensure that parents are kept informed. Occasionally, practice schedules/locations may change; practice or games may be cancelled, postponed or locations changed because of inclement weather; or other important information must be communicated in a timely manner. The Team Mom & Dad should set up contact information for each parent and prepare an e-mail distribution list for such communications.

3) How much time does it take to be a Team Mom / Dad?

There are more responsibilities at the start of the season, and again at the end. A Team Mom / Dad handles a variety of activities that a team needs (other than coaching) or delegates to other team parents. How much time it takes to be a Team Mom correlates to how much you do yourself and how much you delegate. Delegating is a good thing and the team (to include the parents) feels more like a "family" when more people are involved!!

4) How many Team Moms / Dads per team?

We will have up to three Team Moms / Dads per level.
