"We used online draft for our NJB basketball draft and our Bronco Baseball league draft. The set up was fast, simple, and so efficient!!! At the actual draft I connected my laptop to a tv and made the picks. It was very quick and easy to assign each player, once the Manager's made their selections. I have conducted at least 50 youth sports drafts over the years and using OnlineDraft was a phenomenal improvement. I used to spend hours setting everything up and then at the actual Draft, my old system was very cumbersome. I would highly encourage utilizing, and recommend OnlineDraft for anyone who has ever run, or been involved with any type of draft format. This program is AWESOME!!!"

"We used OnlineDraft for our kids' Pony league drafts in a couple divisions this year and it was fantastic! Very easy to set up, great display during the draft to keep everyone on task, and simple to manage the process and disseminate the team information after it was completed. This is a no-brainer for youth leagues!"

"This draft tool is fantastic! I just participated in a draft for a kids basketball league and I did the entire thing sitting in seat 30D while flying between Los Angeles and New York City. The draft went very smoothly and it was easy to follow and sort the players and make the selections. This was such a fantastic tool to use for a kids' league and I could imagine it would be great for working out other details like vacation home dates and more. Well done, OnlineDraft!!"
