What do you do if it's crunch time and parents are just not stepping up to manage a team?
I need 8 more managers and I'm getting nothing but crickets from the parents.

What are some tricks?

Pretty simple, tell them no managers no teams.
Tell them their money will be refunded.
Tell the you hope they come back next year! B)


I've never had a problem getting managers/coaches, I guess I've just been lucky!😁
Normally we have more manager requests than we have teams.


You said you need 8 managers, how many teams do you have managers for?
Have you drafted your teams yet? (had a BOD Member draft the team(s) that had no manager)

11 teams have managers.
Draft is on Wednesday.
Only 1 of those missing 8 managers would be involved in the draft.
The rest are either Tee Ball or one-team divisions.

First, have a BOD Member draft the team.
Then, you call the parents of the team members and have a Team Meeting.
At the meeting you state the team needs a manager and a coach or two otherwise the kids will not be able to play.
Sorry, no manager, no team.

Do the same thing for the Tee-Ball and single division teams.
Call a parent meeting and explain the "no manager no team" situation.

Good Luck
