“We don't accomplish anything in this world alone... and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads from one to another that creates something.” ~Sandra Day O'Connor

Welcome Back Team Mom’s and prospective Team Mom’s. I don’t know about you but I am so happy to be back on the fields! A lot is changing for the Jarrettsville Recreation Football Program; we will need the support of all Team Mom’s during this season.

For those of you who may be new, each team will choose a parent that will coordinate various matters such as, half-time snacks, game water jug, homecoming, team party, picture day, directions to fields, game times, and rosters. This person is the life line between the program and the parents on each team. Other Team Mom responsibilities this season will be selling Bull Roast Tickets as well as other fundraising activities, helping with the directory, making sure that each parent is informed, helping new parents with uniforms and answering questions new parents might have. It is so important that each of us do our share to make this season successful. For you to be productive as Team Mom you must attend meetings and be informative to your parents. Team Moms must always exhibit good sportsmanship and always have a good attitude!

This may seem like a big responsibility but it is very rewarding! Children whose parents are involved in their activities have better self esteem, do better in school, have better attitudes and feel loved. When your children see you volunteer they see how important to the community your part is. They will grow to be adults that will do the same. This is why I volunteer, I knew I needed to set an example for my children and wanted to benefit them. I couldn’t have foreseen that I would make friends and work with lots of incredible children. I never realized that I would get so much back!

The Team Mom informational meetings are scheduled for Wednesday August 10th and August 11th, 6:30 pm at the Jarrettsville Recreation Pavilion. As Team Mom you may attend either meeting but please make on. Check here often as there will be dates and information that is important to you concerning all of the above and more.
