There's loads of reasons why u need a captain on a tournament team:
- To do everything noone else wants to do... like sorting out the money end of things.
-To get the team together for meetings
-To find out about tournaments and get enough of the squad together to actually play them
-To organise training days etc.
-To get in contact with potential sponsors and current sponsors and sort out deals etc... It really helps if the sponsor can get to know one person on the team quite well... If your captain gets along with them the deal is always MUCH sweeter.
-And last but not least so there's someone to blame if and when it all goes wrong
