As a football team relies on a skilled quarterback to orchestrate plays on the field, our Flag Football teams need a Team Manager to coordinate the off-field efforts. As a Team Manager, you'll play a pivotal role in ensuring our players have everything they need to succeed. Your responsibilities may include coordinating snacks, facilitating communication between coaches and parents, and handling various logistical aspects crucial to the team's success.
Your involvement will not only contribute to the overall success of the team but also foster a sense of community among players, parents, and coaches. We genuinely hope you'll consider joining us in making this season memorable for everyone involved.
