Mother of four, Shepherd, has always been dedicated to youth sports. All of her kids Geoff, 16, JT, 14, Courtney, 11, and Colby, 8, are youth athletes. Basketball is the families favorite sport, and Shepherd is the team mom for both of the Lady Titan teams. She loves being able to help guide both her kids and other youth athletes to the next level.
Her proudest moment as team mom was this season watching her husband Matt's Lady Titans team place 4th in the league. The team was made up of many girls who had never played before and for some this was their first time playing competitive ball. She is looking forward to many more seasons with the Titans. Now that the spring seasons have come to an end she is looking forward to helping out during the Conditioned Mind basketball camp this summer.
As an on-the-go mom there is not much time for anything else other then rushing around keeping up with her kids schedules. But when she is not being super mom, she is a realtor for the Colorado Springs area. Helping people is very important to Shepherd, which is why youth sports has always been something she loves being a part of.
Congratulations again Brooke on being named our Team Mom of the Week. Have fun at the Conditioned Mind camp this summer!
Brooke Shepherd's Recommendations for Fellow Team Moms
If you need parents to help out, whether scorekeeping, snacks or concessions. Send out a weekly email saying who is responsible that week and make it their responsibility to switch if they can't make it.
Stay in communication with the coaches constantly. They may forget something and need a gentle reminder.
Some parents just aren't able to always be there for their youth athlete. Take that kid in and make him/her feel "taken care of". It will make their day!
