Managers

Our volunteer managers play a crucial role in ensuring that the playing season runs smoothly for the team. Managers are supported by the relevant Vice President or Age Coordinator – help and advice is always available.

Managers generally have the following responsibilities:

  • Ensure players arrive at the correct location and time for training and matches
  • Provide a team contact list to parents
  • Liaise with the manager of the opposing team on match day re: game leaders and match result
  • Prepare the match card
  • Lodge match results with NSFA
  • Distribute club and team information

To get started as a manager:

  1. If you don’t already have one, obtain a Working With Children number and email it to us. Instructions here.
  2. If you don’t already have one, create a Football Account.
  3. Register with Kissing Point and choose ‘Manager’ as the Volunteer Type.
