What is the time commitment of being a team manager?

The start of the season is always more work than the middle/end because of administrative duties like rostering and scheduling. The first few weeks will take about 2-3 hours a week to get everything set up for a smooth season. After that, a typical week throughout the season requires about 1-2 hours of work between game scheduling/confirmation, parent questions, etc.
