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.
-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 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. When available, hand out the photos.
-Have fun with it! You can organize team shirts or gifts, 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 shirts and other swag- as with our partnership with the Cranbrook Bucks, all swag needs to be Bucks branded.

-With the exception of U7 Minor, most house teams have two ice times per week. Until Dec 1st, both of those ice times will be practices only. After Dec 1st, teams can participate in games, either against the other Cranbrook teams (especially for the U7 Major) or out of town teams. **The Dec 1st requirement may be changing, more information to come**
-They can also participate in around 2 out of town tournaments per season, also only permitted after Dec 1st. Some divisions also host a home tournament.
-In cooperation with the coaches 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.
