Click Here to begin download... the download should take about 30 seconds ...depending on your Internet speed?
 Later this summer or fall there should be a set of shorter videos to help new scorekeepers.
  • You may create multiple folders on your desktop for collegiate, high school, bantam, peewee, and/or squirt games...and others.

  • For high school games, set up one folder for your JV games and another folder for your varsity games.

  • Each team may have its own folder on the desktop.

  • For festivals and tournaments, it works great to have multiple folders on your desktop...one folder for each game.

  • With multiple folders, many games may be set up ahead of time.  Each folder may contain a single game.
