Scoring Basketball games


All Altona Gator parents are required to take a turn scoring at their child’s games. This might involve the scoresheet, scoreboard or shot clock.

Home teams are responsible for the running of the Scoreboard and Shot clock (if required). When your team plays away they will be responsible for completing the manual scoresheet.

The score bench should work as a team, which makes the job easier and ensures that there are little to no errors.

Gators usually run scoring courses in November and February each season, keep an eye on the website for the details.

Basketball Australia and the VJBL have produced the following resources (video’s & attached PDF) to help parents, players and coaches how to score and use the shot clock.

Please the note, with the change to the Technical Foul rule, the penalty is one (1) free throw and possession for a throw in at the Centre Line. (The video refers to the old penalty)
