Team Manager Information

In addition to a head coach, each team is required to have at least one assistant coach and a team manager. Team managers are required to obtain a USA hockey number (it's free for managers), pass a background check every other year, and complete the annual Safesport training. The USA hockey website will walk you through the three steps.

The team manager, with oversight from the head coach, is in charge with the execution of the off-ice activities and has the authority to plan and manage off-ice and team support functions, including:

  • Communication of team events
  • Game score sheet preparation (upper division levels the coach should collect score sheets after games)
  • Penalty box, game clock, and scoresheet volunteer coordination and assignments
  • Post game snacks (optional but common at the younger age levels)
  • Team financial management. (At the travel and select levels, the team manager shall keep a budget spreadsheet to track all finances, including but not limited to ice fees, ref costs, paid coaches, uniforms, tournament entry fees, end-of-season party costs, etc). Budgets must be forwarded to the treasurer and approved by the board yearly.

The Manager is also to be the primary point of communications for all team related functions outside of the actual coaching aspects of the season. The head coach and team manager oversee the structuring of parent-volunteer participation.
