Score Keepers: All teams are required to provide an official Score Keeper as part of their roster. We strongly recommend that the Score Keeper be an adult and must be present at each contest. The home team (which will be determined by a coin toss before each game) will be the official score keeper for that game with the visiting team also keeping score as a secondary or back up score book. The official Score Keeper will sit with the administration and volunteers at the scorer’s table or tent during the contest. The Score Keeper is now part of your roster and will be treated as a member of your team.
To secure a team’s chance of participating, a coach may submit payment for the team’s registration fee and a partial roster of names if the complete roster is unknown prior to the registration deadline date. The Nutmeg State Games Administration will notify a coach of his or her team’s status by a confirmation email after the registration is accepted. Teams will be selected on a first come, first served basis. Teams not selected because of receipt after the registration deadline will receive a full refund as soon as verification is possible.
