Behind every good team is a good manager and they contribute enormously to the enjoyment of the Tee-Ball season. Communication and organisation are the keys to being a good team manager and working in closely with the coach helps a lot. At this level the task is not complicated and typically involves;
- Organising the team for game day, including the playing schedule (see link below)
- Ensuring everyone knows when and where the next game will be played
- Ensuring there are sufficient volunteers to run the game
- Distribution of the team list and contact details
- Upholding the values and code of conduct of the club
- Ensuring the safety and well-being of the kids
- Managing the general communications for the team and dealing with any issues as they arise
- Submitting the game results for uploading to the website
- Always have team contacts with you and a charged mobile phone on game day – we recommend “TeamApp”!
- Write the batting order and the 3 positions they will be playing in on the players’ hands prior to the start of the game
- Get organised early
- If you’re not sure, ask
- Understand how and when cancellations will be broadcast
- Get to know the coach and understand who does what
- Respect the relationship between parent and child
- Get others to pitch in and help
- Ensure that there is a pencil case in the kit for scorers – including multiple pencils, eraser & sharpener
- Write the batting order in the score sheet
- Ensure you have a volunteer scorer prior to game day
- Attach a picture of the oval you are playing at, and highlight the diamond.
