Being the mother of an athlete is a challenging yet rewarding role.
So momsTEAM designated May as Sports Moms Month and has been celebrating
by asking some of our favorite sports moms to share their wisdom by

athlete to moms who were themselves Olympic athletes, from a moms of
former minor league baseball players and NCAA Division 1 basketball players to a Minnesota hockey mom and

Respect for coaches, parents, equipment, and the game.
