Vertex42's Basketball Roster will help any coach or team mom get organized. Keep all of the season's most important information on a single sheet.
Visual Basketball Lineup Sheet
The visual lineup sheet is great for putting together your lineup before the game. This helps you balance play time, and being visual, it helps the players all know where they are supposed to be playing and when. Let them find out when they get to go in.
Basketball Game Stats Sheet
Use the included Game Stat Sheet and shot charts to keep game statistics for your team. Better yet, print out a few copies and have assistant coaches or parent volunteers help you keep the totals. After each game, enter the stats into the season summary sheet to tally the totals for the season. This is great for end of the season parties, when everyone wants to know who scored the most points or was the biggest fouler: fact-based bragging rights.
