That will depend entirely on the head coach. Some like to run things themselves, and others utilize assistants very well.
Regardless, as an assistant coach, you'll likely be doing a lot more of the one-on-one caoching rather than the team stuff.
Above all else - keep it fun, keep them busy, and have fun!
This is an area that I've always found difficult. Ideally, you can find a perfect balance between fun and pressure. I've coached mostly AAA, so the balance usually shifts to pressure, but in the seasons I coached AA, it shifted more towards the other end.
It's a tough mix to figure out.
