The Team Manager
SPUYSC coaches are unpaid volunteers who spend more than their share of time devoted to coaching. The team manager can help enormously to make sure the coach is efficient. Responsibilities include making sure parents are informed about the game schedule and practices, keeping a team binder, setting up a snack schedule for games, and facilitating team communication. Of course, the team manager can delegate to other parents. It is the hope of the club that one parent of each child will act as a team manager at least once during the years their child is playing.
The team binder should have the following:
- Medical release forms for each player
Player and coach passes on a ring for easy handling by the referee.
3. Game cards (aka match reports, which are provided to the referee by the home team (listed first on the game card)
4. Names and contact information of opposing coaches or team managers.
5. Contact information for the referee assigned and the match scheduler.
