The Ultimate Soccer Tournament Guide for Team Managers

Team managers often have the most challenging time of all when it comes to planning trips to soccer tournaments. While many coaches assume this crucial role themselves, countless others, particularly those of the higher-level teams, prefer to focus exclusively on coaching issues, leaving all the tournament planning details to a designated team manager.

The manager is therefore often expected to take care of travel arrangements, hotel accommodations, parent liaisons, meal planning, equipment issues, collection of money and any other things that might come up in the course of planning a trip for sometimes up to 30-40 people.

A trip that is planned well can give your players and their families a far more rewarding experience, not to mention possibly offer them considerable savings on the cost of the trip. Leaving a coaching staff time to focus solely on the team issues will also go a long way towards helping the team acheive success on the field.

Yes, managers play an increasingly important role in the soccer tournament landscape, so this part of the site is dedicated to helping them do their jobs as efficiently as possible.
