We are always looking for team managers as they are a valuable part of our teams and athletic program. We are thankful for the students who have been team managers in the past and hope you will continue this year.
We invite any students in grades 9 – 12 to become a team manager. We understand the commitment that Team managers provide to each team and all managers will receive a physical activity credit at the completion of each season. Knowing the value of a team manager to the players, coaches, parents and athletic program, we have created some initial guidelines that we ask of all managers starting in the 2023-24 school.
Managers are an extension of our teams and coaches. The following are some of our expectations.
Team managers should be part of practices and games
Team managers will help coaches in practice
Team managers will be asked to work the game clock if no one is available
Team managers may be asked to keep stats, fill water bottles during games and practices
We hope they will consider being part of our athletic program as a player or manager, both are vital to the success of our athletic program. If you are interested in being a team manager, please complete this form.
Please reach out with any questions!
