• Ability to create your own formation or customize existing formations using the drag-and-drop Formations editor.
• Make substitutions in 'Real Time' for quick position switches OR use 'Delayed Mode' when planning multiple subs. At substitution time, the sub list shows who's coming out, who's going in, and the positions being filled.
• Pre-plan your Lineups for games or save the current player field as a Lineup. When switching to a new lineup during a game, Coach it displays a list of player substitutions and position switches.
• Timers: Keep track of player time 'Out’, player time 'In' and the number of times out per player. Timers turn yellow and/or red if player time exceeds user settings.

Best app for managing a team on game day, easy to setup custom formations and it makes managing substitutions so much easier with its time tracking and pending sub features.
Great app for managing line-up and substitution challenges
I have coached youth soccer for 8 years and am a coaching coordinator. Managing subs has always been one of our coaches' biggest challenges. I was excited to see this app released and finally got to "field test" it this weekend -- it addressed so many common issues. First, one of my players who confirmed they were coming and I put in the starting line-up got sick and no-showed -- it was easy to make that change on the fly. The ability to track playing time made it so much easier to make sure players got their time on the field. The substitution list -- who is coming out, who is going in and what position they are going in at -- makes it so easy to call off, send in, etc. Paper notes always got messy for me by the second half and I hated it when I sounded confused -- now I can keep it all straight. With just a little bit of "practice" at home the night before, I found it very easy to use, even in the heat of real match play.
Other than the same request made by other reviewers -- for more or customized statistic categories -- I didn't find any bugs or issues during my use. It is flexible, intuitive and easy to use with just enough options so that any level of coach -- from the newest rec coach to a competitive trainer -- would find it useful for their needs and team level. I will demo it at next season's coaches' meeting.
Absolutely love the latest update! I'm actually glad that you have to add a calendar entry, and filtering stats by team and game is brilliant!!! I've used this for both a team I coach as well as a team my son plays on, and the stats themselves are incredible for validating what I see as well as pointing out trends that I need to be aware of as a coach. In terms of substitutions, that has helped immensely coaching 8v8 when there are 15 kids on the roster. The few improvements I would make are: staging substitutions, being able to move a player into a position who slides into another with the third going out. Custom stats in this version is also brilliant. It would be great to be able to have a view to place where on the pitch the shots are taken graphically, as well as adding pictures instead of soccer balls as icons. Those are nice to haves. As a tool, this has been integral to managing time and rotations for our youth team. Absolutely love this app!!! Believe me, you will realize that your return on your purchase has been achieved by the start of the second half.
