Player Agent Role
Posted 05 April 2016 - 01:22 PM
Is the player agent allowed on the field to assist as a parent helper?
How strict is this guidance and what are the potential consequences?

Both strict and not so strict.
The Player Agent has a lot of "power" in a league. Obviously, a PA could abuse that power if they're also a manager (think about drafts). It's important that the PA is unbiased, as they represent ALL players.
With that said, LL will quickly approve that waiver (we just did it for myself to manager). However, it's still very important you have the correct person for the job (which they remind you). No one can overrule the PA on a player decision, so with great power, comes great responsibility.
You probably wouldn't have any problems if the PA is helping out, but just get the waiver to be safe. Very quick and easy.

Are you talking about games or practices?
The only adults allowed on the field during games are the manager and the two rostered coaches.
You can have as many "practice" coaches as you want/need but they all have to have a background check and they must be approved by the President.
You can not just have a parent walk out onto the practice field and "help".
