Scoring Resources



To ensure consistent and professional Softball scoring across the country, Softball Australia relies on the dedicated work of the lecturers who train the scorers.

All level manuals and lecturers guidelines are under review on a consistent basis. Before embarking on any accreditation training, make sure you are utilising the latest versions of documents.

Current exams and marking schemes follow:

Updated files are also available to accredited lecturers and State Directors by emailing the NSC.

All lecturers have been identified and accredited through the NSC. Only accredited personnel are able to conduct training courses on the scoring program. This approach ensures ensure quality control in the rollout of the training program. State Directors seeking additional accredited personnel must apply formally through the NSC program.

Any accredited personnel must undergo a formal accreditation program under the auspices of ASC as follows:

The Accreditation Course Report, registration papers, and the marking results must be completed and forwarded to the NSC within 14 days of an accreditation course being conducted. This will ensure ASC registration and production of your candidate certificates.


The mentoring program offers an opportunity for one-on-one assistance as scorers progress through the scoring program pathway.

Softball Australia’s mentoring training is aligned with the ASC mentoring models. Mentors are invited into the program, firstly, for their technical competency, and secondly, for their recognised skills to assist scorers in achieving their goals. The mentee candidate often drives the mentor relationship, with the assistance and guidance of the mentor.

Whether it is offering advice on a career path or an accreditation direction, mentors are available to provide excellent support. When seeking a mentor, suitable matching is critical to the sustainability and effectiveness of the mentor/ mentee relationship. Contact the NSC and together we can determine your specific needs before helping match you with a mentor.
