Improving Travel League Scheduling

Whether you’re a town softball program or the NFL, scheduling is complicated. Even the NFL says there is no “perfect” schedule. 

But if you are a travel youth sport league, the scheduling challenges become exponentially more complex. Travel leagues must factor in issues such as:

  • Travel Time
  • Coaching Conflicts
  • Blackout Dates
  • Ref Coverage for Games
  • Special Requests
  • Etc…

Software solutions available to a league schedulers do not contain the suite of tools necessary for travel league scheduling. Because of this, many leagues rely on spreadsheets to generate all or parts of their schedules. Spreadsheets have drawbacks that include:

  • Slow and arduous processing
  • Difficulty managing last minute changes
  • Inability to scale as league complexity grows

The time required to complete a 150 team schedule using available technology can require over 150 hours complete. That’s nearly 7 full days!
