We Can Longer Send Text (SMS) Notifications

We are currently unable to send text (SMS) notifications to capos. In an effort to reduce spam texting, the communications industry has implemented complex requirements for texting from automated systems such as our bocce website. Meeting those requirements would require significant modifications on our part, so, until we can determine if it is feasible, we are forced to suspend text notifications.

Scoresheets No Longer Required

As announced at the Fall Capo meeting, we no longer require that paper scoresheets be filled out and turned in for each match. If your electronic score is complete and correct, there is no need to turn in paper.

We have had electronic scoring for almost two years, and teams have become proficient in keeping score electronically. Over the last three seasons we have had three invalid e-scores out of 847, for a success rate of 99.65%.

With the elimination of paper scoresheets, we can now post results and update standings and stats within 15 minutes after completion of the final match of a session.

Things to Keep In Mind

  1. With no paper score, it is important for teams to pay attention to the scoreboards and notify the scorekeeper immediately if there is an error.
  2. Our scoring system runs on servers in a secure, commercial grade data center. In the rare case of a system outage, you need to be able to complete the match score on paper. You may want to have a paper scorecard handy, and maybe keep track of the score without bothering to fill in team names, player names, etc.
  3. The scoreboards are not essential for electronic scoring; they simply show the results. If the scoreboards are not working, you should continue to keep score electronically.
  4. We have wifi at the courts, but it is recommended that you use a device that can connect using cellular data as well as wifi. Then, if there is a wifi outage, you can continue to e-score using your cellular connection.
  5. Be sure the device you use for e-scoring is fully charged before the match.

If You Do Not E-Score

Teams are strongly urged to use e-scoring. However, if both teams in a match decline to e-score the match:

  1. You must complete, sign, and turn in a paper scoresheet.
  2. Players will not receive credit for games played in the match for the purpose of determining playoff eligibility.
  3. Team and player statistics will not be compiled for either team, for the season.
  4. You will create more work for the league scorekeeper, and bad karma will follow.

Logging in to the Clayton Bocce Website

Microsoft No Longer Supported

Microsoft no longer supports federated logins. We can now accept only Google or Facebook account links.

Federated Login

Website access control systems can be quite complicated: userids, passwords, secret questions, password resets, two-factor authentication and more. For the ClaytonBocce.org website we decided not to include another access control system; instead we will use well known existing systems. If you are issued a ClaytonBocce.org account, you will need to have a Google or Facebook account, and you will login using your Google or Facebook userid and password. The technical term for this is Federated Login. We did this for two reasons:

  1. These two providers have full-featured, robust, and secure access control systems.
  2. Many persons have an account on one of these systems. By leveraging their existing account, they can avoid having yet another userid and password to remember.

How it Works

The process for logging in to ClaytonBocce.org:

  1. Click Login in the upper right of this page.
  2. On the login page click one of the three buttons to select the login service you wish to use: Google or Facebook.
  3. Login on your selected service. (This step may be skipped if you are already logged in to the service.) The first time you login you may be asked to authorize Clayton Bocce to link to your account. After you login you will be returned to the Clayton Bocce website.
  4. You will only need to do this the first time you login. Register your Google or Facebook account with your Clayton Bocce account. When your ClaytonBocce.org account is set up, you will receive an email with a one-time registration code. Enter your one-time registration code on the registration page and click the Register button. This will create a link between your Google or Facebook account and your ClaytonBocce.org account.


  • The ClaytonBocce.org login page has a checkbox labeled Remember Me. If you are using a private computer, you may want to check the Remember Me box on the login page. This will cause your browser to store your login credentials on your computer and automatically log you in when you access the Clayton Bocce website. Note: your login credentials are sensitive, so you must use https for automatic login. (ie. https://ClaytonBocce.org).
  • This website does not access any of the information in your Google or Facebook account. Your contact list, calendar, friend list, etc. are not visible to this website. Your userid and password are not passed to this website.
  • When you are logged in, Login in the upper right corner will be replaced by your name. Click or hover over your name to open a pop-up menu where you may logout or view and update your account profile.

What If I Do Not have a Google or Facebook account?

We anticipate that most bocce league members will have a Google or Facebook account. If you do not have one you will need to create one. The alternative would be for the bocce website to have its own userids and passwords, but then you would have to create one of those, so what's to be gained?

Google accounts are simpler than Facebook, so if you just need an account to access the bocce website, we suggest a Google account.

  • To create a Google account:
    • Go to the Google Home page.
    • Click the Sign in button in the upper right corner.
    • Enter your email address, click Create account and select the type of account.
    • Click the Next button and follow the prompts to enter your information.
  • To create a Facebook account:
    • Go to the Facebook Login page.
    • Click the Create new account button.
    • Fill in your inforamtion and click the Sign Up button.
