ON GAME DAY:

Team Managers are to go to control (remember a pen) and find your score sheet (you will need to know your Team number here). Tick the players who will be taking to the court for the first quarter and fill in their positions. If the opposing team has already filled in their positions on the score sheet, you may take it to the court. If they haven’t filled in their side of the score sheet, leave it at control for them to do so and then they will bring it to the court. The score sheet is usually available at control 15-30minutes prior to the commencement of the game.

Please note: you must have permission from the OLOR registrar prior to borrowing a player. Failure to do so may result in a penalty forfeit and loss of competition points for your team. Should you be approved to borrow a player, you must have their ID card on hand to show the opposing team. (this is obtained from their team manager). Ensure their name is added in the borrowed player box.  

At the court, introduce yourself to the other team manager. Ensure the score sheet is at the court prior to the commencement of your game. (the last team to sign on will bring the sheet to the court). Go through your ID book and ID each team member with the other manager. Check the opposing team’s ID book against their players. (name to face).

Team Managers usually score the game (or appoint a responsible scorer). Scorers must stand together on the sideline in line with the centre of the court. At half time the other team manager takes over the scoring. At each interval both team managers must complete the positional changes for each player. And as replacement players take the court, tick their names and fill in positions as usual. At the end of the game, sign the score sheet as acknowledgement that the written score is correct. To show a goal has been scored, place a line through the number and at the end of each quarter, circle the last goal scored.
