What is the role of a Netball Manager

Well the main role is really to support the team coach. Each Coach has to dedicate a large amount of their personal time each week for training, match preparation, and of course, giving the girls every support during each match. As such, there is not a lot of time left to spend on the other less glamorous areas of running a netball team.


This is where the manager steps in. The role will simply be to take away some of the administration and time consuming areas such as communication that may be required. The manager role is not demanding, but a good manager will leave the coach with more time to actually 'coach' and therefore a better team should result.


Areas where Managers can assist are:


  • Coordinating training times and attendance
  • Collecting bibs after each game
  • Rostering each member to bring a treat for after the match (if so desired)
  • Keeping players and parents informed of match times and court venue
  • Alerting players to cancelled training/matches because of weather
  • Co-ordinating money collection for extra events such as club carnivals
  • Submitting 'Best and Fairest' votes
  • Rostering parent scorers and if required time keepers

Best and Fairest:


The top three players for each match are awarded either 3 points for first, 2 points for second, and 1 point for third. (All other players that day receive 0 points). The manager is responsible for collecting the voting each week. It is recommended that the parents each take a turn in deciding who is awarded the points, and then reporting these votes to either the Manager or Coach so they can enter this information on the website.

Ideally within a few days of the match taking place before the weekend is over and the memory starts fading!

At the end of each season, the player who has performed the best and given their all for the team will be awarded the Best and Fairest trophy at the annual awards. The winning player is decided on a points system allocated at the end of each game and is at the discretion of the Coach.

Remember that the managers role is vital in the running of a good team. Your contribution is really appreciated and the club and teams thank you for volunteering your time to help in this area.

To help you, there are forms you can download to prepare your rosters for the pending season. .
