Team Operations

Thank you for taking on the role of Team Manager!  The Team Manager is a central figure on a team to ensure there is a flow of communication, not only within the team (parents, players & coaches), but between the team and Steinbach Minor Hockey Association, Coordinators (both SMHA and Hockey MB).  Taking on this role enables the coach to focus on the players, and the 'on-ice' responsibilities."

Travel Permit - Hockey Canada only sanctions events where all participants are registered members of Hockey Canada or USA Hockey. When traveling to a tournament or exhibition game outside of Manitoba you may need to verify your registration with the branch and a travel permit serves as the verification that your team and its members are registered with Hockey Manitoba and is proof of the insurance provided to you as a member team. If you are travelling to the US the individuals on your team must also have some form of primary travel insurance.
