Managing futsal team is a combination of different processes. This involves managing, coaching, marketing, short and long-term planning, budgeting and so on. Depending on the level of a team these processes are of different complexity. Also depending on the level of a team there are different number of processes.

For example a team, which is basically a combination of friends managed by one of these friends, may not need a short and a long-term planning or even coaching (although it's recommended even for such small teams). But this team still needs it's managing (deciding how often to play, collecting a certain amount of money from all players and then paying for a pitch; or just to buy a ball) and easy budgeting (a process of deciding how much money is needed for a pitch, when to make a payment for it and when another amount of money is needed).

In smaller amateur teams this is usually a job of one person. And usually this is the most organized person, or just the leader of the group. In bigger amateur and professional teams there are different people responsible for different jobs/processes.

Ideally every serious (amateur or professional) team depending on its objectives should have a:

1. manager – for short and long-term planning, coordinating, hiring and firing staff, equipment etc.;

2. finance manager – for budgeting, advertising, working with sponsors etc.;

3. coach – for building training system, training sessions, tactics etc.;

4. doctor or physiotherapist – for dealing with player's injuries during training sessions or matches.

You should remember, that depending on the size of a team, the fact whether a team is taking part in tournaments or not, there are different processes going on inside of a team. Depending on the specifics of these processes, there is a certain amount of key functions that should be delegated to certain persons.

Another element that is very important, when you chose your staff is chemistry. The people you are going to be working with may be different, but they have to believe in the same goal as you. They may even have different view on how to achieve a goal. This is even better, because as a manager you will be able to look at situations from different angles. But at the end of the day – all of your staff has to be heading in the same direction as you are (winning a league, promotion, implementing attacking style of play etc.). Try to get staff of different age so you have a good combination of experience and initiative.

If only one person (a manager) is covering all these functions, than in most cases the management won't be as effective as if when these function are delegated to different people. Although it's important that a group of people involved in management of a team is not very big. Three or four will be just about right. Otherwise there might be higher risk of a conflict between them and the effectiveness of managing will decrease. So if you are a manager – try to get you two or three assistants and make them do what they do best.
