Easy Setup

Setting up your Youth Sports League Draft is a snap. Just sign up, and then enter a name for your group. Then import your athletes from SportsEngine and configure your draft. It is FREE to sign up and get started.

In Person or Remote Drafts

OnlineDraft works great either way. If all of the coaches meet for the Draft, connect a laptop to a TV and use our DRAFT BOARD. OnlineDraft will simplify the process whether your Draft is In Person, Remote, or a combination of the two.

Pre-Assign ("Slot") Players before the Draft

You can pre-assign, or "slot" players before the Draft begins. Once you have set your draft order, you can make any selection in the Draft before it begins. If certain players need to go at certain picks, we have you covered.

Assign Players during the Draft

Sometimes picks come together. For example, when you pick a player with a sibling then you may need to pick the sibling in a later round. From the DRAFT BOARD it is simple to assign any player to any pick in the draft.

Full control of the Draft Order

We will help you build your draft order quickly, but you have full control over every pick in the draft.

Administrator control of the Live Draft

Administrators can start, pause, resume, and end the draft whenever they like. Further, the Administrator can pick for coaches and enforce pick time limits.

List View of all Players

All player details are available to Coaches in a List. Rosters can be downloaded to a spreadsheet after the draft.

Pre-Rank Players before the Draft & AutoDraft

Before the draft coaches can rank all of the players. At the draft, all of their ranks are available to help coaches make their selections. AutoDraft can be turned on at anytime to have the system pick for you based on your rankings.

Multiple Drafts?

OnlineDraft works great for leagues with multiple divisions and drafts. Often players not selected in a draft need to be added to the next draft. With OnlineDraft you can easily import the undrafted players into the next draft.

Works on any Internet-Connected Device

OnlineDraft works great from any Internet-connected device using a modern web browser. Use your desktop computer, laptop, smart phone or tablet to make your picks.

What about Trades?

After any draft you can use the "Trade" feature to quickly trade players. A record of the trade is added to the draft log.

Email and SMS (text message) Turn Notification

Coaches can choose to receive an email and / or a SMS (text) message whenever it is their turn to make a pick. Notifications will keep your draft moving.

Which Sports?

OnlineDraft works great for all sports leagues that need to form teams from a pool of players: baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, football, hockey, lacrosse, and more.

League Rules

The OnlineDraft system has all of the functionality needed to comply with your league's official draft rules and regulations. Players can be easily loaded from the registration data via a spreadsheet. The draft order, configuration, and details remain password protected. The league administrator has complete control over access to the draft system.

"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!!"
