I want to be a guest player on another team for an upcoming tournament. The coach said it would be ok. What do I have to do to be a guest player? What does the coach have to include on the roster? Will I need to wear another player’s uniform?
Most of the “work” involved will happen during registration. Typically, you will have to meet all the qualifying criteria (age, gender, etc) that the “normal” players on the team have to meet. Then the tournament may have specific guidelines that teams have to meet for their “guest players”. This usually includes a limit on the number of guest players and often includes limits on playing experience.
In all likelihood, the coach will need to provide you with your own uniform, not one of the other player’s. The only exception would be if you were taking the place of a player who is not attending the tournament. Then the coach could assign you her number and uniform on a temporary basis.
Unless the coach has specifically asked you to help him put this information together, I wouldn’t stress on it. Most of this work is the coach, parent, or team administrator’s responsibility. Your focus should be your play.
