Every Mom Has a Story to Tell About Youth Sports. MomsTeam Wants To Hear Yours!

  • Have you organized a successful fundraiser for your child's team?

  • Have you taken a team to a tournament in a foreign country and lived to tell about it?

  • Did you find a way to get an out-of-control coach or parent to clean up his or her act?

  • Have you been witness to youth sports violence?

  • Have you done something in your community to make youth sports safer, saner, less stressful and more inclusive?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, we urge you to share your unique story with other moms. That's why we created "One Mom's Story," where each week we will feature personal testimonials from moms around the U.S. and Canada about their experiences in youth sports. We welcome inspirational stories of all kinds. Stories of your struggles and success as a sports mom, of your highs and lows - tell us what you've been through, what you've learned, and what advice you'd give to other moms in your situation.

To have your story considered for One Mom's Story, Please:

  • E-mail your story to, or

  • Mail it to:
    "One Mom's Story"
    60 Thoreau Street
    Suite 288
    Massachusetts, 01742

Please provide your daytime and evening phone number so that our research staff can call you before we consider your story.

We look forward to hearing from you!
