For youth sports clubs across the country, the task of holding effective tryouts is a major pain point. The vast majority of tryouts are managed by volunteers using paper and clipboard and entering the tryout data into a spreadsheet. This manual process is time consuming and makes collaboration and data-driven analysis difficult. This makes it difficult to draw accurate insights to place children on the right team, track player data, and communicate effectively between coaches and parents.

TeamGenius player evaluation software allows youth sports organizations to customize tryouts and focus on key selection criteria of their emphasis. TeamGenius can be run by the coaches and volunteers on a tablet or smartphone at the tryout location or home, with or without an immediate internet connection. After the tryouts, evaluators can configure teams based on their evaluation criterion within minutes. This information can then be shared with parents, so they know how their child performed and to which team and position they have been placed.
