The Team Manager’s role is to distribute information to team members about registration, uniforms and fixtures and to organise rosters for training supervision and scoring games. All parents are expected to participate in scoring and training supervision.
A contact list of all players, parents and coaches should be distributed to all team members at the beginning of the season. Please ensure that parents agree to have their contact details shared.
