So now that you have volunteered to act as a Team Manager you are probably wondering what exactly you have committed to do for the team. You are the primary regular contact for your team members with the Trebol Soccer Club.
The Team Manager is the primary administrative role in the functioning of the Team. In performing their duties, the Team Manager allows the coach(es) to focus on coaching the team. As a result, the Team Manager acts as the primary point of contact between coach(es), members of the team, parents and the Trebol Soccer Club. Some of the activities included are optional or many can be carried out by the Team Manager. By engaging other parents to assist you with the effort required to administer the team you: a) distribute your work load and b) encourage more participation of the parents.

At the beginning of each season, meet with the coach and determine what kind of assistance the coach needs and wants during the season. Following that discussion, organize a team meeting with the coach(es), parents and players. Items to be discussed include:
At a minimum you must be sure that the team is registered to play and that effective communication takes place with the parents and players.
