For those used to the SportsSignUp Play system, SportsEngine is a little different, especially when it comes to adults on a family account.
In SportsEngine, only one adult can be the account owner, with the ability to register the players listed in the account and automaticaly get access to the team schedule, receive all league and team communications, etc. Another parent could create a separate account with the same player information listed, but that won't work because SE will see those as two different sets of players, meaning (1) it may result in both parents accidentally registering their players twice and (2) won't result in one of the two parents being able to actually get access to the players' teams, get team communications, etc.
So, here's how to add an additional parent (or other adult - SportsEngine calls them all "Guardians") to the player profile(s) in an account, so that additional parent/adult can view the team schedule, receive league and team communications, RSVP to games and events, message team members, and even edit the athlete's profile (but not register the player or see registrations - and Guardians will NOT receive text messages on behalf of a player):
NOTE: Each player profile in an account can have a different set of Guardians, and a Guardian can be added to more than one player in an account at the same time. Since generaly you will want to have the same additional Guardian(s) for all players in your account, you ideally don't want to add Guardian(s) until after all your player profiles have been created. To do this, the account owner should use our Player Profile Creation registration. to first create all your player profiles before adding additional Guardian(s) Note that any player profiles you create AFTER you assign Guardian(s) will not be associated with those Guardian(s), so you will have to assign them again.
