*KEY ROLES (Essential Job Responsibilities)*

Scorekeepers maintain the official team rosters of eligible players and substitutes. They review suspension lists and verify the eligibility of each player prior to the beginning of the game. When a substitute player must wait to enter the playing field, the scorekeeper tells the substitute when he can enter the field. Tracking individual player statistics, such as the number of rebounds or shots taken in a basketball game, also is done by the scorekeeper. They track the number of penalties or fouls each player receives and alert an official when a player receives his last permissible foul or penalty.

Before a game begins, a scorekeeper helps to prepare the facility for the game. He cleans and sets up equipment, including the scoreboard, and tests the equipment to make sure it works properly. Scorekeepers may greet visiting teams as they arrive and may greet fans and spectators. At the conclusion of a game, a scorekeeper cleans and puts equipment back in storage. If an emergency were to take place during a game, the scorekeeper must be knowledgeable about emergency rules and procedures and provide instructions to the crowd.

At the conclusion of the game, scorekeepers tally the data they track, calculate statistics and provide copies of a standard report to each team and to sports reporters.
