Most moms would be satisfied with a full schedule and the stress of a busy baseball season. It’s a good thing that Shannon Norris isn't your everyday mom. She’s a full time mom of three, a student, a volunteer, and a Team Mom for not one, but two youth baseball teams. This amazing dedication and time savvy is what makes Shannon Norris our Team Mom of the Week.
Shannon lives in Ooltewah, TN with her husband of seven years, Jaren, and their three sons: Elijah (7) Taylor (6) and Jonah (1). Collectively, they spend most of their free time playing baseball. When she’s not tending to her baseball teams, she’s a student, and even finds time to volunteer at her local community school.
Shannon helps out the 7u East Brainerd Arsenal and the 6u East Brainerd Stingers in any way that she can. “I always volunteer to be Team Mom at the start of every season. I enjoy helping the players as well as the coaches so they have more time to focus on the game.” It’s amazingly clear that Shannon greatly enjoys her role as Team Mom. She loves watching her boys grow as players and individuals, and also enjoys the friendships she makes with other parents.
