Team Managers are essential to the success of a season. They help to provide a foundation and organization for our players, families, coaches and volunteers who support the team. Youth hockey couldn’t exist without the participation of parents and caregivers who support the team either through managing, scheduling, budgeting, score keeping, time keeping, fundraising, or tournaments. At the centre of this activity is the Team Manager, who helps coordinate the many vital activities of each team and the volunteers who make it happen.

SMHA uses an organization-wide subscription to TeamSnap as a tool to manage teams and help with communicating scheduling and duties. All parents and caregivers can download the TeamSnap App on their mobile device.

Requirements for Team Managers include:

  • Hockey Canada Registry ID
  • Respect in Sport for Hockey Canada Activity Leaders
  • Concussion Awareness Training Tool certification
  • Criminal Record Check for Vulnerable Sector

Hockey Canada Registry ID

All Managers require a Hockey Canada Registry ID number to become a rostered team official as a manager.

Please check for an HCR # and current qualifications at
If you don’t have one, or aren’t sure if you have one, please contact our Risk Manager and provide your full legal name, address with move in year, email, phone, and date of birth. The move in date is mandatory.

Respect In Sport

Respect in Sport is an online course for all hockey volunteers who have contact with players. It takes about three hours to complete. You will have to pay for the course and you will be reimbursed for the expense once you have finished it.
