Welcome Managers!

Taking on the role of team manager should not be taken lightly.  This is a demanding role and it requires someone who can communicate well, be extremely organized and someone who is prepared to make decisions that he/she knows are in the best interests of everyone on the team.  Good managers will lead a team through important decisions on budgets and tournaments while ensuring everyone is included in the process.  Be respectful of family budgets when it comes to spending decisions and work on a fundraising plan that is fair to everyone.

On this page you will find Information to help you organize your team.  You will be able to obtain your forms such as Fair Play Codes and medical information sheets as well as other items, that you will need to submit to your Division Coordinator.  It will be set up as a resource for you.  If you have something that you would like added to this page, to share with your fellow McKnight Managers, please forward your request to the Executive Director at and we will add it. 

Good Luck and thanks for your support!

Should you have any questions throughout the season, please contact your Division Coordinator and subsequently the Head Coordinator.  Contact information is on the website.

Each season, immediately upon team selection, a team manager meeting will be held by the Executive Director, Head Coordinator and the Division Coordinators, to orient all team managers with the McKnight Hockey Association policies and procedures.  This is a mandatory meeting for all team managers.  This season's meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 7:30 PM at Thorncliffe Greenview  Community Association in the Old Lobby Room (beside back parking lot).  Please refer to the McKnight Calendar for additional information.

We will structure the meeting so that Timbits managers may leave early as there are some items that do not pertain to them, otherwise expect to be available for a couple hours.

This website page is always work in progress.  If you have something to add, please let us know.

New forms are being updated and added regularly.
