About this app

If you're tired of having to do "team captains" every time you want to change up teams, but don't want entirely random teams either, give this app a try.

This team picker is designed for Ultimate Frisbee games. Team player distribution is based on 7 different player skills and allows selecting which players are there before picking teams.

Skills used: height, speed, catching, throwing, defense, competitiveness, experience, endurance.

The algorithms used are quick and efficient, and produced fairly balanced teams based on the skill ratings. It takes only a few seconds to add a player to the database, and only a few seconds more to un-select players not present.

Some advanced options are available in the Preferences, as well as turning on a more detailed explanation of the team balances after the algorithm is done selecting players.

* Supports 8 different player skills with ratings of 1 to 5.
* Add, edit, and delete players.
* Pick any number teams.
* Select players available for current game.
* Force certain players to be paired with or separated (split) from others.
* Mark players as inactive to make selecting available players quicker.
* Backup, restore, send (e-mail, Dropbox, etc.), and receive/load player database.
* Import and export CSV versions of the database.
* Easy and lightweight interface.
* Can try to make teams' gender distribution equal.
* Optional skill weighting.

A wonderful tool that does what it's designed for very well. Our pick-up teams are decided instantly and the games are more balanced and competitive than before we started using the app. Even though it hasn't been updated for a number of years, the app is still great and the developer is still incredibly helpful. Definitely recommended!

Works well but I play with a few different pickup groups, and it would be nice to be able to group/tag players so when I play with one group I don't have to sort through all the players in my other groups. Would also like to see overall player ratings, to make sure I've got the weights and individual ratings calibrated-- it's often easier to compare two players overall than on the basis of specific attributes.

Hi Adam, Thanks for the suggestion. I'd like to implement a way to switch between player databases (e.g., Pickup Group #1 and Pickup Group #2). I hope it will be in version 2.0 ... sometime this year. I may get to the score comparison part quicker though - it should be relatively easy to add to the "Edit Player" view.

I have been using this app every week for several months now and the teams come out perfect. Highly recommend
