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, age group coordinator, league chairs, other teams, referees and officials.

To aid Team Managers in the smooth operation of their team, Hockey Canada has created the Team Manager’s Manual that identifies key topics that managers need to address and provides numerous working appendices that can be customized to fit the need’s of each unique team.


Key Topics:

  1. Team meetings
  2. Volunteers and delegation
  3. Team rules and safety
  4. Record keeping and distribution
  5. Organizing games
  6. Applying for tournaments
  7. Organizing travel
  8. Team finances
  9. Team activities
  10. Coaches’ resources
