Tips and Best Practice ideas for getting the most out of GameSheet

    • Any changes made on the Dashboard after that are not reflected on the iPad. 
  • Don’t leave the rink without your email copy of the score sheet. 
    • As soon as a completed game is uploaded, team managers and coaches with GameSheet accounts receive a Post Game Email with links to the score sheet and box score.
