Becoming a Manager
The Team Manager oversees the operational aspects of the team. As Team Manager, you serve as the communication director, financial director, and team liaison. The Team Manager coordinates all off-ice tasks and shares pertinent information with players, parents, and coaches. This enables the coaches to focus on player development and on-ice instruction to provide players a rewarding hockey experience.
The Team Manager is not required to do it all. But rather, the team manager delegates to keep the team on-task throughout the season.
Below are all the links to the USA Hockey required trainings and registrations. If you have any questions on the links below please contact Darla Armstrong.
1) USA Hockey Registration
Team Managers are required to register with USA Hockey as a Manager/Volunteer. There is no registration fee for team managers. You will be prompted to enter your USA Hockey confirmation number into your Hyland Registration and SafeSport Training.
2) Hyland Volunteer Registration
Once you have your USA Hockey confirmation number, please complete the Hyland Registration. When prompted to select a participant to register, select yourself OR choose + NEW PARTICIPANT and add your name and information for this volunteer registration.
3) USA Hockey Background Screening
Background screens through NCSI under the national program will cost $30 for all domestic screens. Reimbursement of your background screen will come out of your TEAM ACCOUNT. Please ensure that your treasurer has added this cost into the team budget.
Screening is good for two seasons. NCSI will not allow you to complete a new background screen if your previous screen is still valid.
4) SafeSport Training
The U.S. Center for SafeSport is an independent non-profit organization focused on ending all forms of abuse in sport. SafeSport Training is required for all team managers. The Safe Sport Training and Refresher Training are each valid for twelve (12) months beginning on 4/1/22. Completion certificates must be emailed to email@example.com
There is a core course followed by three refreshers - only ONE course needed per season. Once you sign in you will be automatically directed to the appropriate course.
