Every Team Needs a Manager
The Team Manager helps overall communications within the team and helps with administrative functions and events.

What is the “Red Book”? The “Red Book” is the Coach’s and Team Manager’s Handbook and can be linked from below or from the MYH Home Page under Links. It contains the leagues bylaws, contacts and each town’s conference rep and more for the respective conferences. In addition, it explains how each conference handle’s bye requests and/or rescheduling of games.
It’s very important to request your bye per the dates in the “Red Book”, or as early as you know your event date – especially if your team plans an event September to Thanksgiving – as that schedule is complete and released the first week of September. Game schedules are released per the dates in the Red Book for the current season;
- September – first week after Coach’s meeting, games released until Thanksgiving
- November – late November Director’s meeting, games released until February Break (balance divisions)
- February – late February Director’s meeting, games released until end of season (March)
