Team Managers are essential to the success of a season. They help to provide a foundation and organization for our players, families, coaches and volunteers who support the team. Youth hockey does not exist without the participation of parents and caregivers who support the team either through managing, scheduling, budgeting, scoring, fundraising, tournaments or time keeping.
At the centre of this activity is the Team Manager, who is not responsible for the execution of all activities, but the Coordinator and Organizer for the activities.
SMHA has made a significant investment in the tools and resources required by the parents who manage teams. SMHA has secured an organization-wide subscription to TeamSnap so that Managers have a tool to manage their teams and help with communicating scheduling and duties. All parents and caregivers can download the TeamSnap App.
In addition to the Criminal Record Check, Team Managers are required to complete Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) and Respect in Sport - Activity Leader courses. Links to these courses can be found here: https://www.bchockey.net/Clinics/Clinics.aspx
