Yeah, I didn't write these, I just modified them. I just added the word "usually"... these are very basic guides for green NSOs.

Nice!
Here are my comments...

LT: under current pass you state, "if a skater is sent to the box on the initial pass of the jammer, indicate with a zero"  My understanding is at the jam start whistle, the jammer is ON pass 1 unless she is in the box, so this would be marked as a 1 not a 0. With the change to "S" for starting in the box, you would now only enter a "0" when one of your players enters or exits the box while the opposing jammer is on lap 0 (having started in the box, and still currently serving her time).

PBM: In the event one jammer is serving for multiple penalties, "If during the second minute the opposing jammer...serves the equivalent of the remaining time" Remaining sounds misleading. The second jammer would serve the same amount that the first served of her second minute, now what is remaining. My explanation is this: A gets 3 minutes. At 0:35 remaining, B comes to the box. A is released, and Jammer B now serves 0:25.
Also, holding the queue between jams could be added as per WFTDA Standard Practices.

IWB: "prior to each jam the Jammer refs will want to know how many penalties each jammer has accumulated" I'm not sure this is true very much these days unless she has served 6 penalty minutes... Also it is in the Standard Practices that "As each skater sits in the penalty box to serve their penalty, place a small dot underneath the penalty code to denote that the skater has served that penalty."

PT: "FO/EXP – If a skater sits in the penalty box for seven minutes, that skater has Fouled Out.  The abbreviation “FO” is written in the top box and “PM” (penalty minutes) is in the bottom box.
If a skater is expelled from a bout by the Head Referee, “EXP” is entered into the top box, and the appropriate penalty code is written in the bottom box."
My understanding is for FOs, PM would go in the top box and the jam number in which occurred in the lower. and for EXPs, Penalty code in top and jam number in lower.

SK: On jam 3 of your scoresheet "NP" is marked, yet a "0" is marked under Pass 2. This pass should not have a zero, as she never finished her initial pass.

JT: More info like hand signal for calling off the jam, timing of 5 seconds verbal cue, Pointing at the pivot line, etc. (as per WFTDA Standard Practices) could be added.

Great job though, I might poach some of your work (and give credit if I do)

We at Northside Rollers have updated Gravity Kills's manuals, sticking very closely to the format and content but with the 2013 ruleset. As sources we've used the manuals themselves, things that have come up, other old manuals, advice from other NSOs, and information from the WFTDA officiating clinic held over here in April.

They reflect what we're currently doing (and trying).

I've emailed and PMed GK about this (basically wanting to give it back to her) but not heard from her, so here are links to them, plus a penalty codes document with hints on how to remember them.

I may take them down at some point if they are no longer needed.

They print on A4 paper and are PDFs.

This is a Link to an NSO Training manual for 2013

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2US1AfKE1O1QkM1blZlUm9MS2M/edit?usp=sharing

Avoid using the word expelled anywhere in the fouling out procedures.  You don't want to get your NSOs in the habit of saying someone is expelled if they did not receive an expulsion.  I'd change the phrasing of the last line of the box trips section under penalty timer from expelled from the bout to removed from the bout.

Penalty Counts.  You note the need for the various penalty management and tracking positions to verify the penalties called and served at halftime, but make no mention of it being a regular responsibility during the peridod.  If no mention is made that this is something that should be being done all the time, it's easy for new NSOs to never acquire the habit of doing so.

In your scorekeeping procedures, opening line you have the colored bandana tied around the writs instead of the wrist.

In the jam timer section.  The scoreboard clock is always the official clock, at least for sanctioned or regulation play, since it is required for the official clock to be highly visible.  A common way to describe the jam timer's clock is as the accurate clock since the jam timer is usually in a better position to promptly catch clock stoppages.
