[Return to My Kid Scoreboard Help]

Keeping Score:

Keep track of points and shots using the +Goal and +Shot buttons below the scoreboard. The +Goal button adds one to both the number of goals and the number of shots. If you make a mistake at any point tap the + / - button to enter correction mode. When you are in correction mode, the buttons will appear red and will subtract rather than add to the team totals. Tap the b>+ / - button again to exit correction mode.

Use the +Time button to advance the time bar. Each segment of the time bar represents 1/4 of the time within the period. When you advance the time bar to the end of the the first half, you will be prompted to confirm the end of the half like this:

Similarly, at the end of regulation you will be asked to confirm the end of the game. If the game is tied, you will instead be prompted for what to do next like this:

You can indicate that a team is a "man up" by tapping on MAN UP in the scoreboard. You will see a dialog where you can choose which team has the man up advantage. Once the man up advantage ends, simply tap on MAN UP again to remove the arrow.


My Kid:

If you have provided a kid name as part of the Game Setup, the "My Kid" area will be visible above the Action Area.

The My Kid area will always have a "Position" (or "Pos") button with which you can specify the position that your kid is currently playing. If your kid is not on the field, choose "Bench." When your kid is on the field you will see an additional +Play button in the My Kid area that allows you to enter game stats for your kid. If your kid is playing Goalie you will see an additional +Save button in the My Kid area that allows you to record saves for your kid.

NOTE: There is an option in the Game Setup that controls whether entering shots and goals for your kid also updates the team stats.


Multiple Kids:

You can keep track of stats for more than one kid by entering each kid name separated by commas in the "My Kid(s)" field in the Game Setup. If you have done this, you will see an additional Kid button in the My Kid area that lets you switch between the kids. If you have just two kids, each press of the button will switch to the other kid. If you have more than two kids, each press of the button will display a menu for you to choose which kid to display. Tapping on the kid's name will always move to the next kid whether there are two or more.



If you want to let followers know more details than the app can provide, you can send information in a "highlight." Think of a highlight as a text message to followers. To record a highlight, tap anywhere in the highlight area (just below the scoreboard), enter the highlight text and then tap the "Done" button (on the keyboard). The highlight text will be cleared when the highlight is successfully sent. If an error occurs sending the highlight, the Broadcast Button will show "Error" and the text will remain so you can try again.
