Team Managers

At SABC, each team has a nominated team manager who is usually a parent or guardian of one of the registered players. The Team Manager acts as the first point of contact for parents and carries out administrative duties on behalf of the team. The Team Manager is generally responsible for off-court team management activities and to liaise with parents, players, the coach and Club administration. Team Managers work closely with the coach to bring about a high level of team spirit and camaraderie.

Duties

The main esponsibility of the Team Manager is communication.  The Team Manager must contact the players, their families and the coach about game schedules, fixture changes and any relevant club or association news. Players and their families are to advise the team manager of any player absences or injuries that effect games and trainings. Please provide your contact details to the team and Club administration.

Team Managers are also responsible for the following:

PRIOR TO THE START OF SEASON

    1. Supply a  team sheet (hyperlink to document) to admin@southadelaidebasketball.com.au at the start of the season as well as an updated version any time there is a change to the team. This is very important as all players must be registerd with Basketball SA and allocated to the team in the Stadium Scoring  system prior to taking to the court.
    2. Draw up a roster for scoring/time keeping (and filming if coach requires). Each family is expected to provide a scorer when rostered or swap their turn with another family. Generally, during home games SABC parents are required to work with the computer using stadium scoring to score and away games with the time clock. Division 1 games (U14 and above) will also require a shot clock operator to be provided by the home team.

ON GAME DAY

  1. Attend games and assist the coach and players on the bench.
  2. Prior to the start o the game:
District SDJBL Domestic
  • Check off player names in Stadium Scoring and ensure player numbers are correct
  • Collect player tickets
  • Fill out player names on score sheet
  • Collect game day money and give to score table

You will find it beneficial to have a list of all your players along with their player numbers to take with you to each game so that you do not have to rely on your memory.

  1. Make sure every player has a drink bottle and towel at the bench at game commencement. Refill water bottles when required.
  2. Assist with injuries and issues during the game including obtaining ice for immediate first aid when required.
  3. Maintain the team’s First Aid kit. Ensure that the First Aid kit is at all training sessions and matches.  Strapping tape is not supplied by the club. The canteen has supplies of tape at competitive prices.
  4. Do not allow non-team members (including parents or siblings) to sit on the player’s bench.
  5. At the end of the game, encourage players to clear the bench area quickly so that the next team may prepare for their game.

TOURNAMENTS, EVENTS & FUNDRAISING

  1. Team Photo Event – Ensure that communication regarding the photo event is distributed to the team along with ensuring organisation on the day and collection and distribution of photos once received by the Club. The event is usually held in the winter season and you will be notified of dates and times by Club administration.

 

  1. Community Lottery Fundraiser – Distribute raffle books to all team members during the annual club raffle. Collect books and money and return to club administration prior to the nominated date.

 

  1. Tournaments & Carnivals – Assist with tournament registration, scheduling and fee collection.
