Being a Team Manager

Every successful team needs a manager and although much of the work is done behind the scenes, it can be very rewarding.

How to get started

If you are interested in becoming a team manager pass your name along to your child’s coach. Generally, it is the coaching staff who appoints the manager as they will be working closely together. As a note, many team managers stay with a team season after season as it provides continuity for all involved, therefore depending on the team this position may already be filled.

What does a team manager do?
