Our athletes do not call their own lines. In addition, you will need to be in charge of the ball boys/ball girls on your court and be able to direct the athletes as necessary. Scorekeepers must be 16+ years old.  If you are under 16 and would like to be a scorekeeper, please contact Billie Fitzsimons:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
