“Coaches only have two hands. There are a lot of things that managers can take care of that frees up coaches to do other things, such as running the clock during drills in practice, setting up the court if we’re going to do particular drills with maybe cones or a certain number of basketballs, or blocking pads and things like that. So they help do things that coaches would normally have to do and it just frees up the time. It also helps them to become more familiar with the game,” said T.J. Dade, Robinson Girls Basketball Coach.

Managers help with many things. To become a manager you must express your interest in managing to a coach of the team. You can email the head coach or talk to them in person. Coaches look for dedication in managers as well as availability.  Practices and games are very important for managers to attend. At practice, a manager may run the clock, set up the practice space, and many other things. At a game, game film is very important. Managers will help at games by filming the game and give the players water once they get to the bench.

“As a manager, you have to be able to come to all of the games and practices. At games, you keep the score, help with the book, or help with libero track. At practices, you may help if the coach needs scoring, help with drills, help prepare volleyballs, and help get uniforms ready.  Managers help keep things organized. At games, coaches need to make sure that their teams are ready to play and the managers have a role that they understand about what needs to be set up, what needs to be done in order for the game to be taken care of. For volleyball, the freshman and JV teams both had two managers, and the varsity team had three,” said Meghan Johnson, Robinson Girls Volleyball Coach.

Becoming a manager for one of Robinson’s athletic teams is a fun way to get more involved at school. Email a coach today to see if you can manage a team.
