Whether you are a seasoned veteran at managing or this is your first time managing a team, we have designed this course to help anyone through the ins and outs of a sports season.

It is also not gender or age specific, and it is designed to be relevant for all levels of sport, from Community Recreation to Nationally Competitive.
This course takes you through an entire season step by step and what needs to be done by the Manager in order to ensure a successful season. It covers areas such as: Parent Management, Abuse Prevention, Financial Management, Team Travel, Volunteer Management, Confidentiality, and much, much more.
