Ready to get started with Scorebook Live? Check out these guides to make sure you’re getting the most out of it for your program
Creating an Account
Press Create New Account on the login screen, then enter your name, email, and password. If you already have an account, enter your credentials and press Login.
Claim Your Team
In My Account, indicate that you’re a Team Admin/Coach, and claim your team by selecting High School or College, searching for the name of your school, and entering your credentials. Scorebook Live will respond to your claim request as soon as possible.
Setup Your Team Profile
Enter all of your team information, including your roster and coaching staff.
TIP #1: Make sure that your team name is correct, i.e. Torrey Pines, instead of Torrey Pines High School
TIP #2: Logos with a white background will look the best on scorebooklive.com
TIP #3: You can add player and coach photos too. Pictures from the shoulders up will look the best on scorebooklive.com
Setup Your Schedule
Use the Find A Team feature to add all of your opponents from the Scorebook Live database to your team list. Then, press Create Game, and fill out the required information for each one of your games. Press Save & Continue when you’re done.
TIP #1: Some of your opponents may already have been setup by another Scorebook Live user. You can download a completed version (if there is one) from Find A Team. If not, just download the correct team and you can set it up yourself.
TIP #2: If you don’t have a roster yet for some of your opponents, make sure to at least have five placeholder players in each roster. You can edit these later and add the rest of the players, but you need at least five players to create a game.
TIP #3: Set Track Subs to ON only if you are already comfortable using Scorebook Live. It’s a little more challenging but will give your fans a better idea of what’s happening in your games!
TIP #4: If you have the time, try to add a logo for each of your opponents as well.
The Pregame Hub
Before you start your game, you will first need to finalize game details and rosters for both teams in the Pregame Hub. This is your last chance to add players and edit game information, so make sure to give yourself enough time before the start of the game! If your state or league requires it, the referee also has the option to sign the book in the Pregame Hub!
Scoring the Game
The Scorebook Live scorebook is as simple as it gets – just score what you see! It even does all of the math for you, so your scorekeeper will always know how many fouls each team and player has, and how many timeouts each team has remaining. To record a score, just press the +1, +2, or +3 buttons and select the player who was responsible for the stat. To record a foul or a timeout, press the number next to Foul and Timeout, select the type, and for a foul, select the player. To change the quarter, press the button in the center of the screen below Period. It’s that easy!
Tip #1: If you made a mistake, or just want to review the game at any point, just press the Edit History button. Here, you can view the entire play-by-play of the game, and edit or delete any event.
Tip #2: You can even Tweet out a game update right from the scoring screen! Just press the Tweet button, and Scorebook Live will auto-generate a graphic that displays the score of the game, the leading scorers, and other game info. You can even add your own text if you’d like to.
The Postgame Hub
After the game has ended, you can access the Postgame Hub at any time to review, edit, and share your game information!
Tip #1: If your team keeps stats like rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks, you can enter those in the Postgame Hub.
Tip #2: You can also export an excel, csv, or txt file of all of your game data from the Share tab.
Tip #3: Make sure to Tweet out a final score update in the Postgame Hub!
Don’t forget you can always view the Tutorial from the home screen!
