TEAM MANAGERS MEETING 2016
Agenda for Tuesday, October 11, 7:30pm, Rec Center, 2nd floor, coffee room.
Thank you for volunteering as team manager. As a team manager, you are part of the KBSC team. You are welcomed to attend our board meetings as well as join the executive committee which proactively brings important information to the attention of KBSC.
The mission of KBSC is to build the best quality soccer program that unites children that have a passion for soccer and develop their skills to compete at all levels, while providing a wholesome, well-organized environment to teach teamwork, sportsmanship, and general wellness.
Teams, Team manager & Coaches, do not work independently in KBSC
The main job of the team manager is to facilitate a culture of communication, respect, and focus on player development.
Communication guidelines (example: Email, Whatsapp, FB, and Islander News.)
For newspapers, like the Islander News, please find a parent who can send a high resolution photo (300dpi) try to use a photo that features all the players, plus a banner in the background that shows either KBSC or the tournament they are participating in.
Photos for FB can be send via phones (high resolution not necessary, ideally shirts are displaying our Key Biscayne sponsors for travel are: Lucky Explores, Brigette de Langeron, Ma. Eugenio Orthodontics, Ayesha).
Limit Whatsapp chats to logistics, etc. please discourage all commentary about game results, especially opinions about players and coaches.
Team Snap is a great app for organizing schedules, communications, photos and reimbursements.
Venmo is useful app for reimbursements. Just keep notes so you are not taxed on reimbursements as income.
