As a team parent, you will be responsible for helping relieve the coaches of several admin duties so they can focus on developing the players and encouraging the love of lacrosse. The responsibilities of a team parent include but are not limited to:
Managing the players, schedule and duties in TeamStuff - TeamStuff is the app our program uses to track the team schedule, understand what players will be in attendance for each game, update the score of the game, and get volunteers for game day duties.
Make Roster cards- When the players have on their helmets, it's hard to know who is who. The players love to have all parents cheering them on so the laminated roster cards handed out at the first game provide a list of players and their team uniform number so everyone can cheer each player on.
Sort and distribute/collect uniforms/pinnies - At the beginning of each season, help is needed to sort and distribute the team uniforms and pinnies for the division. Once player packs are in, those will need to be distributed as well. At the end of the season, the team uniforms and pinnies will need to be collected from the players.
Organize the end of season celebration - Collectively with the other team parents in the division, you all will work to collect money from the parents for the end of season celebration. Then, you all will decide how to use the money (i.e. food, coaches gifts, donation, party, etc.). You will be responsible for communicating details of your team's event and ensuring your coach hands out the bag tags that are already provided you by the program for each team member.
