What Is A Sports Leaderboard?

A sports leaderboard is a display showing player results from a tryout, camp, showcase or combine. Depending on the capability of the leaderboard, you can group out things like categories, positions, drills, etc. For example, you could easily design a leaderboard to show Top Hitters, Top Fielders, and Top Batters at a baseball/softball combine.

When using SkillShark’s leaderboard feature, you could have multiple TVs on the field or arena, showing multiple leaderboards. Depending on whether your event is a tryout, combine, showcase, or camp, you can align your leaderboard to capture and display whatever data you choose.

Please note: SkillShark is a player evaluation software, meaning the data/scores displayed on the leaderboard are collected by coaches and evaluators when using the SkillShark app. With SkillShark, you can measure athletes on skill or metric you choose within any sport.
