Manager Responsibilities



Team Manager Responsibilities:


  •  Keep parents and players informed of all team affairs ex. games/practices/tournaments. Teamsnap or other similar apps are handy for communication. This will mean you need to attend most practices and games.


  • Attend Coach/Manager meeting at the beginning of the season, and any additional Manager meetings set after.  Email with date/time/location will be sent to you.


  • Collect fully completed Code of Conduct and Medical Forms for each player on the team.  Copy to be scanned or handed in to BLA Secretary or Registrar prior to any tournament/season games. forms


  • Coordinate together with Coaches and Jersey Parent to ensure team equipment inventory; jerseys, balls, goalie equipment is accounted for at all times. You must coordinate with the Equipment Director to return all equipment ASAP once provincials are complete at the end of season.


  • Register your team for any tournaments they wish to enter. You will be responsible to collect funds from parents and make payment for the tournament as your team sees fit.  It's also helpful (not necessary) to book hotel blocks for the team. You must also ensure this does not interfere with the regular season schedule.  Advise the BLA Registrar by April 10th of what tournament your team will attend. Southern Alberta Lacrosse Association (SALA) is a good place to start looking into tournaments close to home.


  •  Discuss and decide with your coach if your team will be attending the David Fehr Festival/Provincials.  You must complete and submit the ALA Intent form, which must be received with payment of $750.00 by June 1st.  This fee must be collected from parents if your team plans to attend.  Please advise the BLA Registrar by May 15th if your team will attend, so provisions can be made for practices. NOTE: Registrar will advise if there are any changes to the provincial set up as it can change year to year.


  • Schedule the box for your team. If you are the home team you will require 3 people in the box and if you are the away team you will require 2 people in the box.  Division of duties is usually decided by the parents assigned to the box at the beginning of the game.  Consider holding a “how-to” session to show everyone how to use the score clock so they aren’t afraid to try it.


  • Managers must have scoresheets provided for games when the team is a "HOME TEAM". Scoresheets need to include all players, coaches and assistant coaches names and jersey numbers and the attending coaches signatures. To make life easier we suggest making labels to stick onto the scoresheet. For "AWAY TEAM" games a label will also be required but the opposing team will have the scoresheet prepared. A scoresheet tutorial can be found on the website under the "Managers tab". 


  • Submit Game sheets to your Age Coordinator within 24 hours of the game being finished!! No Exceptions!! 

    Game sheets must have the following information on them:
    Game number
    Team names


  • Work with the coaches to create a positive, healthy and fun environment for both parents and players.
