Game Time Scheduler

GameTime Scheduler automatically builds round robin game schedules in seconds for any sport, including soccer, basketball, football, baseball, softball, hockey, volleyball, raquetball, wallyball, golf, and more!

It easily handles divisions with even or odd numbers of teams, and produces schedules with any number of playing locations.
Game Time's built-in editor enables you to make any manual changes you like while helping you to avoid creating conflicting team, field or official assignments.

Create as many schedules as you want and share the fields:
With each new division schedule you can choose to "coordinate with" one or more existing schedule so that you can share the same fields or courts among multiple division schedules without creating conflicts!

How The Schedule Wizard Works:

  • You fill in the blanks on each step of our easy to follow Schedule Wizard,
    by entering this information:
    • the team names (up to 30 at a time)
    • the field names
    • the times each field is available
    • how many games each team must play during the season
    • (You can adjust Game Time in many more ways, but the standard settings are appropriate for most schedules)
  • At your command, Game Time generates your schedule.
    • GameTime selects days, times, fields and officials for each game
    • holidays you selected are automatically skipped
    • team and field assignments are prevented
    • all your chosen options are obeyed
    • any special exceptions you entered for teams or fields are honored
  • In seconds, your schedule is complete!
  • Use Game Time's Analysis Reports to confirm that the schedule meets your needs
  • Use Game Time's Reports to print beautiful schedules

GameTime will schedule up to 30 teams at a time, yet there is virtually no limit to the number of teams that it can handle since you can combine as many division schedules as you like.

( GameTime can operate independently or linked with League Administration Software and Tournament Time Live! )

Create "Travel" Schedules

You can assign one or more "home fields" to each team, and Game Time will ensure that home games are played on one of the team's home fields.

Or, if you choose, Game Time can use any field other than one of the visitor team's home fields instead (if your schedule is very tight).

Create "Practice" Schedules

Create pre-season practice schedules, or use Game Time's "Coordinate With" option to schedule practice games on the times that your fields have not already been scheduled for games!

Detailed Analysis Reports Save Your Reputation!

Game Time's many analysis reports enable you to QUICKLY review the schedule to ensure that it meets your needs.

The benefits of Game Time don't end with creating the schedule:
You can manually adjust the resulting schedules, and generate the best analysis reports that you can imagine!

The totals for these important schedule statistics are immediately at your fingertips:

  • Total games for each team (and how many of those are Home or Visitor)
  • How many times each team plays each of the other teams (and how many of those are Home or Visitor)
  • How many times each team plays on each field
  • Total games on each field
  • How many times each team plays on each day of the week
  • Total games on each day of the week
  • How many times each team plays at each hour of the day
  • Total games at each hour of the day

Particularly if you manually entered the entire schedule, these analysis reports prove themselves priceless for making sure that each team gets a fair share of the good fields and times.

Game Time's Post-processing "Balancer" Makes Things Even Better!

There are literally billions of possible schedules that can be created for just 16 teams...
So, once Game Time has created your schedule, you can use Game Time's "Balancer" to shuffle your games around to improve the schedule balance in many ways:

  • Games per day for each team
  • Even out Games on Monday v/s Games on Tuesday, (and Wednesday, Thursday, etc), for each team
  • Games on each Field for each team
  • Distribute Games over different times of the day, for each team

Printing Reports is Very Flexible

GameTime has a powerful report designer which enables you to change the font (and size, and color) for each column in your report;
you can turn any column on or off;
and you can even move your columns around so that they print in a different order.

Sort your reports by ANY COLUMN, and add Dividers (Horizontal blank lines, thin, thick, dashed or even double lines) between days, weeks, months, sets, games and/or round robins to make your schedule more readable.

Game Time also allows you to save your schedules in multiple formats to make it easy for you to publish them in whatever way you prefer (including Word Documents, Plain Text, PDF, HTML, XML, JPG and BMP).
The choice is yours for complete flexibility.
