The main jobs for team management or leadership on a comp soccer team are:
- Team and Player League Registration
- Team Communications
- Team Scheduling
- Negotiating mutual agreeable game schedules
- Organizing Scrimmages
- Team Socials
- Tournament registration & check-in
- Budget management
- Keeping a pulse on the team families and providing feedback to the coach(es)
It’s a long list. The best way to handle all of this is to divide it up among multiple members into a team leadership group. This helps provide for balance and keeps the workload more reasonable. For many teams, having a pair of co-team managers work better than having a single manager. Tasks such as fundraising, treasurer, and recruiting can also be distributed to other team leaders.
