Basketball provides many different ways to become, or stay, involved in the best sport in the world. Scoretable and statistics are two such opportunities.
Scoretable Officials are an active part of the game and are recognised as such. They perform a number of key functions in the operations of Elite games, which include:
- Score and foul keeping on the official scoresheet
- Scoreboard operation
- Game clock operation
- 24 second clock operation
- Signalling time outs and substitutions to the referees
ACT Scoretable Officials are rostered onto all WNBL and SEABL games hosted by Basketball ACT and the AIS, as well as become actively involved when major events (such as National Junior Championships) are conducted in Canberra. Scoretable Officials are remunerated for their work with the WNBL and SEABL.
Scoretable Officials are required to complete an accreditation course, which is conducted by the Basketball ACT. After this, you can avail yourself to be rostered onto games and viola, you are an active part of the ACT Scoretable team!
There are also opportunities to represent the ACT at National Championships (such as SEABL National Finals) or even vie to represent Australia, as one ACT Scoretable Official managed to do for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
