Game scorer age limit restrictions

Does anyone have any info regarding the age limit required for a person to sit and score junior district basketball games. I have been informed by officials it is 15 years and over however am unable to find any info in rules and guidelines with definitive information.

Good question but I think BSA has MUCH bigger issues in the scheme of things.

It's a mess.

Believe it's 15, as long as there is adult supervision if they have someone younger who wants to be involved they should be encouraged. We have refs younger than 15 running around.

Basketball SA these days don't care about scorers ,age doesn’t matter , I saw a kid doing the score I got he was about 10 .
Their bottom line is revenue $$$
Standard of basketball has gone down badly refs hard hard to find these days .
Glad my day was good ,great core refs,but these days are made up of primary school kids doing games .

Unfortunately your assertion that referees are made up of primary school kids is so factually wrong it's actually not funny.

Age should not matter if they can do the job. Some adults struggle with the scoring and possession arrow.

Why post here? Why not simply call your Association? Pretty simple.

At club games, I have seen u14 kids running the scoreboard and scoresheet (or ipad, depending on the club) with aplomb. I have seen many adults struggle with the same.

Never seen a primary school kid ref anything bar an u10 scrimmage, and even then it was under the watchful eye of an experienced ref.
