Gatorade recently launched its new resource site for Moms (Dads could learn something, too) who are raising athletes. The primary focus of the site is to educate us on everything from nutrition to keeping a balance to injury prevention and beyond.

On Monday, May 2nd I will be visiting Gatorade headquarters in Chicago with other Sports Moms to learn even more about the science behind Gatorade, and to hear from Gatorade scientists and sport nutritionists about how nutrition and fuel help our young athletes’ performance. If you have any questions for the scientists regarding Gatorade and sports nutrition, leave me a comment below and I’ll see if I can get it answered.

Follow Us We will be taking in a lot of great information I will definitely be sharing what I learn with you in the weeks to come. However, I will be using Twitter to share some insights and will be hosting Twitter Gatorade trivia contest throughout the day, too! I will have four Gatorade Sports Mom Survival Packs to use as contest prizes for the first Twitter follower who correctly answers each of my Gatorade trivia questions.

Here are the details of the Twitter event:

Whether you are a coach who has to coordinate every aspect of your team or you are a parent who needs to track schedules, keep track of your child’s personal bests or just need to know when you are supposed to bring snacks to the game, TeamSnap is an application you probably need to check out!

Team Snap

TeamSnap is a very easy-to-use, web-based application that helps busy parents and coaches keep their teams organized. It was built from the ground up to be powerful and intuitive — for busy parents, not computer techies and was recently featured on the popular Lifehacker website for its iPhone app’s usability.


Parents and coaches can use TeamSnap to maintain the roster, track availability, manage the schedule, coordinate who’s bringing the snacks, send emails and text messages, collect team fees, share photos and much more. It’s all in a central location accessible only by those on the team with the ability to share select information on a public site.

By making it easier to manage and organize their teams, TeamSnap gives parents more time to focus on their important role in youth sports which includes supporting their child, instilling values, and building confidence.

Are you the team manager or team parent? You need to check out this great article by TeamSnap called Tips for Being A Great Team Manager. – Get Started Today With Our 100% Free Team Management Service!
