How are athletic teams selected?

For ages 5-8, a head coach is allowed his/her own son/daughter and the son / daughter of one or more assistant coaches. Players have the option to return to their previous team from last season or go back into the draft. After coaches' sons/daughters are assigned and returning players are assigned, the remaining team members will be randomly selected by our computer program to even out each team. For ages nine and up, a head coach is allowed his/her own son/daughter and the son/daughter of one assistant coach. After those selections are made, a lottery-style draft process will be used to select half of each coach's team (this number may vary from sport to sport). Coaches will take turns drawing numbers from a hat and will draft in that order. Once half of each team has been selected by this process, the remaining team members will be assigned randomly by our computer program.
