We would like to both welcome you and thank you for being a team manager this season. We know it is a lot of work and very often a thankless position for you to take on.
The Team Manager is a central figure in creating the flow of communication – not only within the team (players, parents and coaches), but between the team and all support systems such as your club, League Managers, other teams, referees and officials. By taking on the operational aspects of the team, the manager enables the coach to focus on player development and on-ice instruction to provide the players with rewarding hockey experiences.
Every team will organize themselves slightly differently to best function in their surroundings, however, there are still many tasks that all Team Managers will need to complete regardless of what team they work with.
THE TEAM MANAGERS WILL NEED TO BE ACTIVELY INVOLVED WITH THE COVID REQUIREMENTS FOR YOUR TEAM. PLEASE REVIEW THE DVHL COVID PROTOCOL AND GAME DAY PROTOCOL THAT WE WILL BE USING UNTIL THE GOVERNOR LIFTS THE STATE RESTRICTIONS.
LISTED ON THE DVHL WEBSITE WILL BE THE DVHL MEMBER CLUB RINKS. THE RINK LIST WILL BE CONNECTED TO A LINK DIRECTLY TO THE RINK SO THAT YOU CAN GO INTO THE RINK TO FIND OUT WHAT THEIR COVID POLICIES ARE PRIOR TO GOING TO YOUR AWAY GAME.
THERE IS A LIST OF RINKS THAT HAVE LIVEBARN SO THAT YOU CAN CHECK IT AND LET YOUR FAMILIES KNOW AHEAD OF GOING TO YOUR GAMES AS WELL!
Below is our guidebook that includes both DVHL and USA Hockey information. We hope to make your life somewhat easier by giving you as much information that we can think of. If you think of anything that we may have missed, please do not hesitate to let us know. Our plans are to update this every season to help not only yourself, but also all future managers.
Good luck this season and thank you again for all that you do for youth hockey!
