2020 Scorekeeping ClinicsUpdatedMonday March 9, 2020 byDLL Registrar.
Who are our Scorekeepers?
Davis Little League Scorekeepers are all volunteer parents who dedicate their time and efforts to keeping track of team statistics for their Little League team. Each team ideally needs 2 parents to step up and volunteer to be the team's scorekeeper.
***T-ball does not keep score and does not need an official scorekeeper***
2020 Scorekeeping Clinics
New this Spring 2020 season, we are breaking up our scorekeeping clinics into 3 categories: Basic Scorekeeping, Advanced Scorekeeping, and Game Changer Electronic Scorekeeping.
Farm/AA Basic Scorekeeping Clinic - Tuesday, 2/25; 7pm-9pm at AYSO
This clinic is for the new or developing scorekeeper who needs to know the basics to score a simple game. We will cover fielding positions, the fun of scorekeeping “shorthand”, how to move players around the bases, and count balls, strikes, outs, and other basic statistics. This is a paper version-only. Perfect for the beginner scorekeeper.
AAA/Majors Advanced Scorekeeping Clinic - Thursday, 2/27; 7pm-9pm at AYSO
This clinic is for the intermediate scorekeeper who has scored at least 1 season in any division. Advanced plays will be discussed such as errors, stolen bases, passed ball/wild pitch. RBI’s, fielders choice, and more. This is a paper version-only clinic. All AAA/Majors teams must have 2 paper scorekeepers.

Game Changer Scorekeeper Clinic - Tuesday, 3/3; 6-8pm; South Davis Home
The Davis Little League is committed to moving to an electronic scorekeeping system for Majors using Game Changer. Please bring your iPad and we'll have fun exploring the app, explaining the statistical benefits that can be extracted from the app, and practicing scoring various scenarios. All AAA/Majors experienced scorekeepers are welcome.
We request that every Majors team have at least one GameChanger and one paper scorekeeper. The paper book is still the official record for the game and that scorekeeper is the official scorekeeper for that game (i.e. the one who will communicate info and answer questions the umpire may ask of you). Game Changer allows us to collect stats on players that your manager can use to improve game play and can also play a role in D64 selection and future drafts.
This clinic will be held at the home of Jennifer Anderson. Please sign up HERE if you would like to attend. One scorekeeper from every Majors team is required to attend. Experienced AAA scorekeepers interested in learning more and trying it out this season are also encouraged to attend.
