National Team Manager Day is a holiday dedicated to people who often remain in the shadows, their work is not noticed. Every year on November 6, we praise team managers, they are the link for all team players, regardless of the sport, league, team size. The manager’s job is to bring players, parents, coaches together.
A huge number of worries and issues are entrusted to the shoulders of the manager – raising funds for the team, organizing trips to away matches, finding sponsors, scheduling, budgeting, renting a room and organizing the training process. In a word, a manager is an organizational core for a particular team. This is necessary so that the coach and athletes can focus on training and playing.
- The managers are often classmates, if we are talking about high school football, or parents, if we are talking about sports in a higher league.
- Managers play a key role in the provision of any team, be it hockey, football, basketball, volleyball, swimming, gymnastics, which is why these people are always visible and significant figures.
- Managers are often called unsung heroes, because they have to do difficult and even dirty work that is not noticeable, in return they do not ask for fame and recognition.
- These people hold the team together, they are the cement that holds players and coaches together. It depends on the well-coordinated work of the manager how comfortable the athletes and the coaching staff will feel.
