Player Management
Admin Rank

Using Admin Rank, your league can quickly apply a ranking order to all players. This rank can be generated by an objective party, or it can be the average of participating coaches, or it can be generated however your league wants. The Admin Rank becomes the default ranking for all players.

League Parity

Many sports leagues are trying to form more balanced teams. OnlineDraft can help with Admin Rank, which allows for a league ranking on each player that is available to all coaches / managers. With Admin Rank set, coaches should be able to make better selections throughout the draft. In addition OnlineDraft is a transparent system where all draft picks and trades are logged and details are to the entire group.

Easy Ranking

With our simple ranking system, we make it easy for each draft participant to get ready for the draft. Coaches/Managers can rank the players at any time before the draft. The rankings will be available at the Draft and coaches can bring an internet connected device and have the players available updated in real time.

"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!!!"

Robert S. Newport Harbor Baseball Association

"OnlineDraft and its SportsEngine Integration reduces the time and effort required of our league reps and coaches, who are all volunteers, to get a season started by over 50% allowing them to focus on basketball and not manual, one by one player rostering. It also speeds up our player draft by at least 30 minutes per draft."

John T. Lee's Summit JR Basketball Association

"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!"

Carey R.

"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!!"

Jeff B.

"This was my first time as a league director and after doing some research I decided to use OnlineDraft. What a great decision, it was pretty simple to get all set up and running within 1 day of the draft. The draft board looks great when displayed on a big screen and it only took the coaches a few minutes to get orientated and get rolling. I will be using this for my future online drafts!"
