So who wants to be a team manager? I remember one season when the coach asked that question and all the parents lowered their heads. No hands went up. No surprise there. Who has the time and the energy for taking and making countless phone calls, booking teams, tournaments, organizing fundraisers and dealing with parents? It's challenging enough to get a decent meal in your kid’s belly and to the rink on time with all their equipment. Pile more duties onto an already full plate of just being a hockey parent? Run the risk of a mid-season meltdown? No thank you!
