SNZ Scorers


7 July 2024: Knowledge Assessment Scoring Theory (KAST)
The 2024 Knowledge Assessments of Scoring Theory (KAST) are open for the Foundation Level, Level One and Level Two for the month of July. 

There is no restriction for sitting the Foundation Level which involves answering a set of questions about scoring in an online assessment.  Levels One and Two are for scorers who successfully complete the Foundation Level and involve scoring a game from a video (Level One) and then analysing it (Level Two).  There are also some online questions about scoring analysis in the Level Two assessment. 

The assessment for Foundation Level, to Level One and on to Level Two reflects moving from the Foundation Scorer to Development Scorer in the SNZ National Scoring Pathway.  Not all levels need to be attempted in any one year.

We have created a clip on our new Softball New Zealand Scorers You Tube Channel which explains our assessment structure and gives a bit of an idea of what to expect in the assessments.

Please register your interest for doing the assessments, or any questions to
