2020-2021 SEASON

manager (5)

The Team Manager is an integral part of a successful team.

On behalf of the Southwest Hockey Association Board of Directors; Volunteers, Coaching Staff, Players and Parents; THANK YOU for volunteering to be a Team Manager.

The Team Manager’s role may take a great deal of time and effort, however your willingness to dedicate your time is appreciated and we hope that you will look back on your role as a Team Manager as rewarding, as well as memorable!

Welcome! For those of you who are new.  The first few weeks may seem overwhelming, but help and advice are always available.  You are not alone!

Welcome Back! For those of you who are returning Managers, SWH appreciates that you are willing to take on this role again.


There are many off-ice responsibilities during the season, and Managers are encouraged to DELEGATE as much as possible.  Review the 'Team Level Positions', and ensure that parent volunteers are taking on (& completing) these roles; throughout the season!

NOTE: Ultimately, the overall responsibility for the off-ice activities being completed, lies with the Team Manager.  Therefore, it is VERY important to remain in contact with your parent volunteers to ensure duties are being completed.
