2020 HS Boys' Lacrosse Scorekeeping / Timekeeping Guide
This guide was initially created to provide an overview of the scorekeeping and timekeeping processes for the Parkway West Boys’ Lacrosse Club in Missouri for the Spring 2011 season. Since then it has evolved annually.
In 2020 the Guide includes notes for Game Announcers, updates on NOCSAE standards, AED/Commotio Cordis and numerous notes to refine your stat-keeping skills.
In 2012, West Lacrosse extended its scoring and timekeeping training to the greater St. Louis boys lacrosse community. In 2014, the in-person training extended westward to Columbia, MO. Today clubs and organizations coast to coast have found it online and requested permission to use it. Each year I update the guide based on feedback from stats class students, stewards of the game as well as from US Lacrosse. Keep an eye on this space or email me for the latest update.
I appreciate your help and volunteerism to make this sport possible for boys and girls. I ask that you do your best to keep statistics accurate and consistent. Please show good sportsmanship to the opponent and game officials while keeping score and/or time.
You’ll find that the love of the sport keeps us all united.
You are welcome to share this guide with others – please be respectful and don’t claim it as your own. If when shared, please shoot me an email and let me know where it went. I love to know how the game is growing.
