Team Managing with Calgary West

Being a Team Manager

Every successful team needs a manager. Most parents are not aware of the many details it requires to run a team. Team Managers are essential!

How to get started:
When you register your child/youth, choose "Team Manager" as one of your volunteer choices. Calgary West will look for team managers after teams are formed. We will endeavor to find a team manager from our list of volunteer options. If the team that your daughter/son is placed on does not have a team manager listed, contact the Club, or the Team Coach, who will then relay that information to the Club. It is important that the Team Coach and Team Manager get a long well, because there will be a lot of communication back and forth all season! 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?
  • Ensure all players are registered with the team properly (work with the Club’s Administrator, Shannon Hunter, to make sure all players are listed as eligible on the game sheets).

  • As requested by the coach, act as the liaison between coaches and parents regarding team concerns, ie. child playing time

  • Establish and manage TeamSnap account for all team activities

  • Reschedule games due to rainouts/tournments

  • Print and bring game sheets to each game and player cards

  • Update scores on the CMSA Goaline system

  • Track yellow/red cards on game sheets

  • Manage travel documents and insurance needs with CMSA for out of province tournaments

  • Delegate the following duties:

    • Distribute player jerseys

    • Fundraising initiatives

    • Administration of tournaments

    • Travel arrangements

    • Injury reports

What support does Calgary West provide?

  • Calgary West will support you through our Administrator every step of the season.
