SCOREBOOKS Each team should have a book or pages and a scorekeeper. Please put your name and grade on the scorebook so if you lose it at PSA we can get it to you.
Scorekeepers Both teams must provide scorekeepers for every game. The home team provides the official scorekeeper and keeps the official scorebook. Scorekeepers are required to sit on either side of the timekeeper. Scorekeepers may not sit in the stands or on the team bench. Scorekeepers must list all players on each team by full name and number.
Scorekeepers (cont.) Record individual scoring, personal fouls, team fouls, time-outs and player participation. Scorekeepers must track mandatory playing time. Scorekeepers must compare their scorebook at the end of each quarter to ensure no discrepancies. If a team is ahead by more than 25 points the scoreboard will be turned off. Scorekeepers will still keep a running score.
Uniforms All uniforms must have legible numbers on the front (4) and back (6). Numbers may be up to 2 digits (0-5). Reversible uniforms are recommended but not required.
