What is a Manager

The role of a manager is an important one in Dollard Hockey. While many parents are willing to step on the ice, there is another segment that have never played or can not step on the ice. Both of these can contribute to the success of a team and make it an enjoyable year for the kids.

 

While being a coach is glamorous, a manager role is more about the paperwork, freeing the coach to focus solely on the development of the kids on the ice. Managers handle preparing the game sheets, organizing tournaments along with planing the social activities for the team in consultation with the coaching staff. The manager works in partnership with the coaching staff to help execute the on and off-ice vision for the year. Along with the paperwork the manager acts as a liaison to the parents, stepping in if there is an issue acting as an intermediary for the coaching staff.


Without a manager, the team would not be able to run. They are an important, contributing part of a Dollard Hockey team.
