I am coaching a local parks and rec team this winter and we are conducting a draft this week. We already evaluated the players based on a scale from 1-5 and just need to find a way to make equal teams. What would be the best way to hold a draft if there are 5 teams and around 50 players? We will obviously allow fathers to coach their sons and honor any other legitimate requests. Thanks in advance!
I don't know if you all have had your draft yet, but here in our Parks and Rec League we do it a certain way to get and try and keep the teams even. we have Rounds in our draft and we start with the best players first. Also if your child is in that round then you have to choose him as your pick for that round. Also since we have a coed league, we even out the girls on each team also the same way. We also have it go, like with 5 teams, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 1, 4, 3, 2, 1, 5, 3, 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, 2, 1, 5, 4, then back to the top. I hope that this can help you, if not this year then next season.
