Basketball Scoretable Officials

Scoretable provides education, training, development and guidance for all levels of scoretable roles and levels of skill (grass roots through to the elite).  The scoretable officials allow the Associations and individuals to stay on top of their game.  There are various functions on a scoretable, each one as important as the next.  These include Chair, Scorer, Game Clock, Visuals and Shot Clock (or sometimes called 24-second clock).  Please see the attached resources for a brief description of each role.

With basketball competitions being held throughout the state all year round, opportunities are always available for those looking to become a scoretable official.  See Events section to the right of this page to view upcoming courses.

Scoretable courses are run throughout the year, with development pathways in place to allow career progression from junior club basketball to QBL, right through to the international level of officiating.  This development strategy is in line with Basketball Australia’s officials’ development framework.

Courtside Scoring

Courtside is a next generation basketball scoring application created by SportsTG in collaboration with Basketball Australia. Courtside will be available on both IOS and Android tablets, greatly decreasing the workload for club volunteers and improving the quality of game data retained. Games can be set up and players selected in under 30 seconds. Once the game commences, fouls, points and other statistics can be recorded through the app. As the app can operate online or offline, results and game data can be uploaded straight away or when the user has access to internet.

Basketball Australia has a range of video resources to assist with Courtside Scoring including:
