Is patting teammates on the behind, sexual assault?
What if it's a co-ed team? Is there a double standard?
It that team mate isn't welcoming of this kind of touching then don't do it. There isn't any "if you're on the team then you have to let everybody touch your butt" rule.
It's not usually sexual assault, or sexual in any way, but the appearance to others is often taken as sexual. A pat on the back, rather than the butt, avoids this potential.
No double standard, just keep your hands to yoourself!
if it makes them uncomfortable, yes
it might be so i suggest you dont do it

Ultimately, this is going to come down to each person's interpretation of the gesture and the relationship/friendship between the two people. Patting someone can be seen as an affectionate, friendly and innocent gesture for some, others might view this as violating a personal boundary. If in doubt, do not proceed.

black, short-beaked fruiting structures or perithecia that are filled
