Team Manager Duties – Indoor

Team manager duties for indoor

  1. Notify your new team of the following as soon as you receive your roster:
    1. an invitation to submit a team name that refers to your jersey colour
    2. the requirement to accept the TeamSnap invite and keep their availability updated
    3. the BA’s insistence on exemplary behaviour toward refs, opponents and teammates.


  1. Appoint a substitute manager who can take over when both you and your assistant are away. And delegate game captaincy when needed; advise the referee accordingly.


  1. Check TeamSnap
    • at least three days in advance to note absences and the potential need to contact Dave Willey for spares (
    • the day of the game to make sure all of your players have completed TeamSnap’s Covid health Check.


  1. Send a weekly game reminder to your squad until everyone has signed up for TeamSnap and started indicating their attendance.


  1. Submit your team name to the league by the end of the second game.


  1. Request spares from the spares coordinator when your roster falls below eight outfielders, specifying the position needed and the calibre of the player being replaced.


  1. Print, update (by hand is OK) and sign game sheets, and hand them in to the referee before each game. Be sure to indicate absentees and spares, as well as have the ref explain cautions. Get the game sheet back from the ref after, scan it and send it to Jared Kitcher of the Discipline Committee.


  1. Bring your team ice packs and first-aid kit, as well as your extra team jerseys for your spares, to every game, or delegate this to a teammate. You’ll be getting a cooler and gel packs on opening night, along with your team sweaters.


  1. Reign in and, if need be, bench players who misbehave, be it toward the refs, opponents or teammates. Assert your authority and come speak to us if you need guidance.


  1. Make sure playing time is evenly shared among your team; call time hoggers off the field and advise the Executive if a player constantly refuses to comply.


  1. Set an example for your entire team when it comes to the BA’s code of conduct. Team managers can coach and guide, but they must never yell disparagingly at their troops.


  1. Rate your players on the BA website at season’s end. You’ll receive a user ID and a password from us for this task.


  1. Attend Management Board meetings called by the Executive during the season, or delegate someone from your team to do so, especially the team rebalancing session after the fifth game.
