Team Aides

In addition to a team’s assigned coaches, each team may have aides to help during practices, games, and with team administration. Team Aides must be related to a player or coach on the team (parent, sibling, etc.). 

Because there is no background check or other risk management requirement for a Team Aide, there are limitations regarding their involvement. Team Aides may:

  • Assist the coaches by following the coaches’ instruction in practices and games
  • Assist with practice drills
  • Help with team equipment
  • Help with administration such as coordinating snacks, scorekeeping, or other team-related events (as instructed by the head or assistant coach)


Team Aides may not:

  • Make coaching decisions during a game or practice. They must be instructed by a coach.
  • Participate in a practice or game without a coach present
  • Lead/coach a game or practice

*A Team Aide volunteering for the purpose of coordinating team communication must complete a volunteer registration and be assigned to the roster to gain access to the team email function.


Team Aides are helpers for the coaching staff. If a team aide does not follow the guidelines set out for them or is not responsive to a coach’s request, there is no obligation for the coaching staff to continue to use that individual as an aide.

If any questions arise about a team aide, they should be directed to the program commissioner.
