Topics of Discussion for Team Managers

 What can you promise the players and their families?

  • You can mention the team outline (tournament dates, league schedules, team training dates) for the coming season.
  • You cannot promise a certain amount of “play time”, position, scholarship, fee waiver or exemptions to the player or his/her family.

 When will practices begin and where will they be held?

  • This is an important piece of information because each player on the team will have conflicting weekly schedules.
  • The sooner you can let the parents know, the sooner they can make needed adjustments.

What is the coaching philosophy for the season? Help ensure that the coaching philosophy is shared by the coach with the team.

  • It may sound like an oversimplification, but coaches often have specific strategies that they will pursue with teams in certain age groups.
  • For example, with a younger, inexperienced team, the coach may wish to focus primarily on skill building and leave lessons on game strategy for the following season. Parents need to know this up front because it helps to prevent some inevitable dissatisfaction if the team suffers a string of losses.
