The Team Manager is a central figure in creating the flow of communication – not only within the team (players, parents and coaches), but between the team and all support systems such as the Minor Hockey Association, Division Managers, League Managers, other teams, referees and officials. By taking on the operational aspects of the team, the manager enables the coach to focus on player development and on-ice instruction to provide the players with rewarding hockey experiences.
Hockey Canada has produced a Team Managers Manual to assist Team Managers in the successful operation of their team throughout the course of the hockey season. Topics include: Team Meetings, Volunteers/Delegation, Team Rules/Safety, Record Keeping/Distribution, Organizing Games, Applying for Tournaments, Organizing Travel, Team Finances, Team Activities, and Coaches Resources.
