Re: Instructor playing in the stands?
Private Instructor here. I have always played with my studentís schools at their homecoming games, as a means of helping bridge the middle school and high school student sections, in a variety of districts. Always with permission from directors, and I generally leave at half-time. If their reasoning is based on community cohesion and promoting healthy culture, they should be able to play with them...as for wanting to reinforce their playing skills, Iím not sure. The reason I only play half the game with students, and then bounce, is to provide more confidence, and show kids we are with them, but they need to be able to play on their own, as well.
I would trust your assistant and their judgment.
