Hi <<First Name>>,

Thanks for offering to be a team manager this fall! As we finish registering players and get ready to start the season, there are a few things I could use some help with.

Open house We are having an open house and new family orientation event on August 19. Open house is a chance to meet the board and coach & referee staff. The orientation is a sit-down for about 100 parents, about the AYSO philosophies. I've been doing this for so long that I forgot what it's like to be new to soccer. It would be great if someone with organization skills could coordinate that evening. There should be reminders, snacks, and invitations to the DCAs and ref staff to attend. 

Cleat exchange The August newsletter will announce that families can bring their old shoes to a box outside the clubhouse, and get a new pair at the open house. Distributing those shoes (and shinguards?) is pretty straightforward sorting-and-lifting job.

Team manager coordinator Our region needs a new volunteer to be the point of contact for all the other team managers. Kelly, who used to do this, has prepared a comprehensive binder with instructions, including how to host the Team Manager Orientation meeting.

Galaxy night We're getting 500 discounted tickets to watch the LA Galaxy game on September 21 (save the date!), including walking the players onto the field and playing on the field at halftime. Could you help organize signups and ticket distribution?

Team supplies the uniforms and supplies arrive on August 22. We also have a list of parents who said they would help with this sort of thing. Could you be the one to put them all to work, stacking the uniform boxes and kitting the coach supply bags?

Staffing the tent You know the red information tent at Victory Park? Well, A lot of parents checked the box saying they're willing to staff it. Someone just needs to tell them when to do it. We've been using Wejoinin and like it better than Signup Genius. Maybe you can even get parents to commit to help set up Victory Park in the morning!

Newsletter As much fun as editing the newsletter has been, I'm ready to hand over the MailChimp account. During the fall season, the region will send a newsletter every week, which we think will especially help the new parents. Would you be interested in that?

Social media Also, apparently, Region 13 needs an Instagram account. I don't have an Instagram account. Help!

If you'd like to help with these tasks, or anything else that you think would make for a better soccer season, please let me know!

Thank you very much!
