Manager's Information

Thank you for volunteering for this position!!

Our association is entirely parent-ran, and we would not be able to move forward without our dedicated volunteers!

The information below is largely directed at our house/recreation team managers. More to come for our rep team managers!



Once the season begins, you will be the first point of contact for parents for any questions, concerns etc.  If you require assistance, you can contact your teams head coach or your division head. 


All teams use the TeamSnap app as the main form of communication

-Our registrar will upload all the players information, and give the manager ‘administrative’ allowances so you can make additions and do scheduling etc.

-Your job will be to upload the schedule for the ice times as they are provided to you by your division head.


Manager Duties


-Make contact with the parents  and ensure they know how to reach you.

-In cooperation with the coaches, arrange a team meeting for the start of the season to meet the parents and provide necessary information 

-In cooperation with the division head, obtain jerseys/socks and other team equipment from CMHA and hand them out to the team. At the end of the season, you'll need to help gather and return them. 

                *There should be a record of who has what equipment to assist with retrieving it at the end of the season. Socks do not have to be returned

                *New this for 2021, a $500 team equipment deposit needs to be collected by the end of October. Atom house teams are only required to pay $100                    per team as they are sponsored by McDonalds and they get to keep their jerseys at the end of the season


-Ensure there are volunteers in place as needed for ice times (ie check in person, clock and score keeping)

-Hand out and collect forms for team pictures and assist with organizing your team on picture night. 

The Name of the Game is FUN!!

-Have fun with it! You can organize team shirts or hats, Christmas/year end parties, year end gifts for the coaches etc.

Of course, this all depends on any restrictions that may be in place due to Covid at the time. 

              **Team swag (shirts,hats etc)- as with our partnership with the Cranbrook Bucks, all swag needs to be Bucks branded and ordered through Players Bench or the Cranbrook Bucks Office

-With the exception of U7 Minor, most house teams have two ice times per week. U7 Minor has one, 45 min ice time per week and they do not participate in games or tournaments.

-U7 Major and U9 can particpate in 2 out of town tournaments per season. Previous to the 2021 season, games and tournaments were only permitted after Dec 1st. Going foward, that rule has been amended and they will be allowed to particpate in 2 games prior to Dec 1st as well as one tournament prior to Dec 1st.  

-U9 and above may also host a home tournament. 

-U11 and above will also participate in/host a tiering tournament at the start of the season. This is done to provide a starting point for the placement of each teams within a specific division. It is the hope that by doing this, teams will play against other teams of similiar ability in order to keep the competition as even as possible. 


To Book A Tournament

-In cooperation with the coaches, and as soon as you can at the start of the season, discuss and decided which tournaments your team will participate in. The sooner the better for planning purposes and ensuring your spot in desired tournaments.

-To search for tournament options, follow the steps below:

                *Go to BC Hockey’s homepage Click Here

                *Click on “Tournaments” and in the drop-down menu, “Tournaments Home”

                *Scroll to the bottom and you’ll see an area to search for tournaments

                                Search your division (U7, U9 etc)

                                Category is Recreational

                                Region is East Kootenay

                                Enter your date range


 -Collect the fee from each player for tournaments (the total tournament fee divided by the # of players attending) 

-It would be best to have at least 10 players available for the tournament.

-Contact your divisioin head for payment options. Players may be able to email transfer direclty to your division head or you can collect cash. 

-CMHA can cover the cost of the tournament prior to collection from parents to ensure your spot in the tournament if necessary. 



Ipads/Score Keeping

-For U7 and U9, there is no official score kept for their games

-Starting at U11, information around pentalities and scores need to be recorded for every game played on the ipads via HiSports

-Each manager is given in Ipad that needs to be returned, undamaged, at the end of the season.
