Learning to keep score with HoopStats is easer than keeping the score book by hand.
For those who don't mind diving right in and figuring things out follow these steps...
1. Start by adding teams using the "Team Manager". You'll need at least two teams to set up a game. So create a team for your opponent even if you're not planning to track their individual statistics. Just add the name of the team in the team list, and set up the color of the uniform they will be wearing if you know it. (This will make score keeping easier) It will be better to score the game for both sides. You will locate all the opponents shots, made or missed and fouls as the game is played. This information can be vital to your coaches strategy.
2. Assign your players to your team by creating new players, selecting rapid roster or picking from a list of previously created players. When adding information about each player, be sure to add their athlete ID number (we will provide this to you. If you don't have these numbers, just give us a call). If your team has already registered for their ProFiles you can get that number by hovering over the photo in the https://portal.profilesportsapp.com/athletes/ Athlete look up list, or by asking your ProFile Sports Field Representative for a list of your player ID number for your team, or by calling customer support and we will e-mail it to you.
3. Add a game using the Game Manager. Assign the two teams and game details. Remembering to add your Team ID number. It is these two ID numbers (the Athlete ID and the Team ID number) that makes it possible for the stats to be displayed in the correct athletes ProFile Micro-Site. So be sure not to forget this critical step. You may have been given your Team ID number when you received our complimentary training when your team assigned you to be the statistician. But if you don't know it, you can get your Team ID number by asking your ProFile Sports Field Representative, or by calling customer support and we will tell you what it is and/or e-mail it to you.
4. Tap the newly created game and select your starters to begin scoring by simply touching the screen where the ball is shot from or where the action is on the court.
5. Record events by selecting the player and action. For missed or made shots tap the screen to show the position of the shot. You can change or drag the position of the shot until you've selected the player and made or missed button. The order of selection (position/player/action) does not matter. Turnovers and rebounds can be assigned to the "team" by tapping the associated action and then the team name.
6. Record fouls and time-outs by tapping the appropriate button for the team.
7. The Events button allows you to view and delete events any time - even after the game to make corrections. You can use the undo button durring the play to go back one step at a time, as far back as you need.
8. The Sub button allows you to sub players form either team. Select a player first to make a single substitution, and you will be presented with a short list of remaining players to choose from. Or, you can select the Sub button in the lower right corner and touch the red check-marks to add or take a player out of the game. Notice the app will keep track of how many players are on the court and will not allow you to proceed if you have too many players on the court. Notice also that you can toggle between your team and the opposing team to make substitutions. While it is possible to fully score both teams, we recommend that you take this time to select the opposing team, and then select clear. This removes all the check marks and provides one large button on the game interface that will be labeled HOME or VISITOR depending on your opponants role. By replacing their roster with this big button you will not have to be distracted by tracking their player numbers and can ignore their substitutions. This will make for a much more enjoyable experience in your score keeping, and will make your stats more accurate because you will be able to focus all your attention on the events your team is involved in.
9. At any point, you can check the current game stats by tapping the Stats button in the lower left to see a graphic shot chart of every shot taken or made.
10. Tap the score button (either team) to view the scoring summary.
12. Now that the game is over, and while still in the score keeping app... 13. Select "F" for final in the quarters and "Done" in the upper left corner 14. You will see a white screen with list of games 15. At the bottom are three icons; Teams, Games and Settings 16. Select Settings (which you may have previously set) and scroll to the bottom of the page. 17. Under the EXPORT SETTINGS Section, check that the Email category has your coaches e-mail listed. You can have more than one email listed here if you separate them by a comma to the list; For example ie: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com 18. Now return to the game you want to send to Coach by selecting the little basketball in the centre at the bottom 19. This takes you to the Season page with a list of all the games you have played so far... 20. Select the game you want to send, and it will open up to the image of the basketball court again. 21. When you are looking at the screen of the basketball court and your final score is displayed on the little jerseys in the upper right and left and you have checked the stats against the official score book for accuracy, we want to send them by e-mail to your Coach. Obviously you need to be connected to wifi when you do this. 22. Click on the Red word "Stats" in the lower left corner. 23. In the lower right corner of the box that pops up is a red box with an arrow popping out of the top (this is the up-load or email button) (you will also see this same box in the upper right of the scorecard interface. - You get to the same place either way) 24. When you push that little box, it opens an "Export Game" dialogue box, 25. Check that "HTML" is selected, Check that "Num" is selected.(because most repositories track athletes by jersey number) 26. Turn on Shot Charts: so the button slider shows green 27. Turn on MaxPreps (or whatever repository you want to report to): so the button slider shows green. 28. Select Stats by : "Game" to sent the final scores
VERY IMPORTANT: It is best to sign up your entire team-at-a-time. Get all your athletes to first register at https://portal.profilesportsapp.com/register with a simple 3 question form, basically their first and last name and an email address. That is it! This will make short work for you, because your roster will load into HoopStats automatically if they do this. We will send them a confirmation e-mail. When they complete the on-boarding process (see How to Register http://profilesportsapp.com/How2Register.html) the ProFile system will assign them an athlete ID number. You, as statistician for your team, will insure the integrity of your teams stats by entering that athlete ID. Only you will have access or be able to submit final score data for publishing in athlete ProFiles. In this way we can validate your stats as "verified", thereby making any recruiters job easier - they will always know that ProFile's stats are reliable and can be trusted. This saves time for college recruiters because they can safely skipping the fact-checking step. This will make your athletes more attractive prospects. 29. How to submit final scores for publishing on ProFile Micro-sites: Below the green buttons in the submit scores dialogue box, is a line of text in red that reads: "Upload Stats to ProFile Sports" (this is a link. Select it) 30. That opens another box with a place for you to enter your email address (that you registered when you signed up with ProFile) and the password you created when you registered with us. - select the team you have authority to score for, (make sure it is red) 31. and select "Send" in the upper right of that box
32. If all goes well you will get a Success message and your coach will receive these reports, if not you will get a box that says "Problem with request" in which case, contact us at customer support and we will help trouble shoot until we find a solution. ...See Next
