What Does the Team Manager Do?

The role of the team manager is to keep the team organized – primarily focusing on keeping parents informed about team practice, game, tournament schedules. Additionally, helping to coordinate volunteers for scoring games and other asks for help. The easiest way to understand this important role in the program is – coaches support the player on the ice, managers support the parents off the ice, parents support the players off the ice.
