Your Manager Convenor is Katy Ward and she can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
The manager is the point of contact for the team and passes information from the ELNC Committee to all team members. The manager offers support to the team coach and is the point of contact for parents who wish to communicate with the team coach. Only the manager is to speak with the coach about player issues.
At the beginning of the season the manager circulates the following forms to team members and collects the completed copies
You may like to utilise an app to manager team communications and rosters for the season. There a number of apps to chose from including but not limited to
Season Game Day Roster
It is a good idea at the beginning of the season to draw up a roster for families to bring fruit each and to delegate the duties of scoring.
ELNC Social Media Consent Form - a consent form for Parents to sign giving consent to use images on social media
Code of Conduct - a code of conduct to be signed by players and their parents
Incident Report - an incident report form to be filled out with details of incident and injury.
Medical Form - to be completed by each player at the beginning of the season and kept in the kit bag for easy reference in case of emergency
KNA Borrowing Guidelines 2017 - Borrowing Guidelines reference for Managers
Umpire Complaints and Incidents Policy
Parent Training Roster
For younger teams, Cadet Coaches or behaviour issues it may be necessary to put together a roster for one parent to be present at each training session, including waiting until all children and coaches have been collected at the end of the training session.
As manager you will bring the kit bag and ball bag to the game. Check the draw for the week on the KNA website, if your team is listed first on the draw, EL<xx> vs ?? then your team is the home team and you as manager needs to collect the scoresheet from the KNA complex before the game. The parent in charge of scoring for the week can pick up the scoresheet. Each player needs to sign the scoresheet. Write 'Absent' next to players that are not playing a particular game.
The scorers from each team should stand with each other for the duration of the game and score together. The winning team returns the scoreboard to the KNA complex at the end of the game after collecting the umpire signatures and captain signatures.
Borrowing Players - Shortage of Players
If your team is short of players for a game, you are permitted to borrow a player(s) however you must carefully follow the KNA guidelines issued for the current season. If you don't follow the guidelines points will be deducted from your team for failure to comply with the rules. The guidelines are available in the resources section of this page, top right.
In the event of wet weather, notification will be posted on the home page of the KNA website. A notification will also be posted to the ELNC facebook page.
Twice a year our club, ELNC, is responsible for Grounds Duty at Canoon Rd and Loftberg Rd for NetSetGo. As manager you will need to coordinate volunteers from your team. The ELNC Grounds Convenor will be in contact with you ahead of time to help you organise your volunteers. It is important for every team member to remember that Grounds Duty is not an option.
Please make every effort to avoid a forfeit. The club will be fined for every forfeit by your team after the first forfeit. The team will be liable for any fines that are applied by KNA as a result of forfeit.
If you can't avoid a forfeit it is imperative that you notify our club secretary with a minimum of 24 hours' notice. Our club secretary is responsible for notifying KNA of forfeitures, this is not to be done directly by the manager. KNA is then responsible for advising the opposition.
