This is the first page of the HotClays support pages. The support pages are a complete reference manual for HotClays. If you are new to HotClays, we recommend taking the tutorial first.
HotClays is a paperless scoring system for trap, skeet, and sporting clays. Scorers do not use a clipboard, pencil, and paper. Instead, scorers use a mobile device (phone or tablet) running the HotClays app. When scorers use HotClays, the scores can be viewed in real time on the HotClays website or in the app. Scorecards can be shared in a format that looks like a traditional scorecard and can be sent over text or email.
Paperless scoring has many advantages over paper scoring, including:
- No need to keep track of a clipboard, pencil, and paper
- No tedious, error-prone calculations
- No ambiguous handwriting
- Totals are automatically calculated for multiple rounds
- Easier to share scorecards and keep records
- Easier to manage events with many shooters
- Live leaderboards for real-time updates from anywhere
- Automatic statistics and scores over time
There is a learning curve, but if you invest the effort to learn HotClays, it will save you significant time and hassle in the long run.
On mobile devices, download the HotClays app on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Note that HotClays is not supported on Amazon Kindle devices at this time. On desktop computers, use a web browser to visit hotclays.com. There is no need to install anything for desktop computers.
