You can share your playbooks with your entire team. Share with your players and parents.
You can also grant access to the rest of your coaching staff so they can create and edit playbooks as well.
Our route drawing tools are not only easy to use, but also allow for complete customization.
You can choose the color, draw solid, dashed or dotted lines and choose the thickness of each line.
You can also customize the route endpoint with shapes such as arrows, circles, square and also a tee.
You can change everything about your players when drawing plays with CoachYouths Basketball Playbook Designer.
Choose any color scheme or stick with the default black and white. You can also change the player's label, animation speed and position type.
You can set delays during animation and show any passes, so that the timing is perfect.
Every situation is different, so every playbook should be customizable.
You can create playbooks with as few as 3 players all the way up to 6 players.
This allows coaches of any basketball team to use our playbook design application, for any league or pick up games.
Sometimes you just need a paper copy of your playbook, no problem you can download a PDF of your playbook and print it at any time.
We provide 5 main formats for download:
We also allow you to download JPEG images of your entire playbook, useful for embedding elsewhere such as WORD or PowerPoint.

**As of 07/25/2014 trial users will no longer have access to download PDFs for printing, the PDF generation is very resource intensive and we need to save these resources for paid members.
If you would like to continue using our application all you will need to do is save a credit card for payment to your account, nothing else is required, there will be no changes to your playbooks, teams or anything else.
That's right there is NOTHING to install, our playbook creator is 100% web-based, nothing is installed on your local machine.
The cloud is a concept in which your data and/or software applications reside on servers around the world, NOT on your local machine, this allows you to access your playbooks from any modern device with an internet connection.
This means you can access from your laptop at home, on the road, your desktop at work or even at your hotel lobby, wherever you are, you can access your account.
There are NO limits to the number playbooks or teams you can create.
When you signup you can choose a Plan, even during your free trial. The plan you choose will determine the limit on the number coaches with whom you can share your account with.
So if you have 2 other coaches on your team you would need the 3 coach plan, if its just you then you only need the single coach plan, we have plans from 1 to 10 coaches.
YES, this is a web based application, no software has to be installed on any device, so you are free to login and draw playbooks from an modern device with an internet connection.
NO, you are able to use any device that has a modern web browser, so you can use it on a tablet, laptop, or desktop running Windows, Mac OSx, Android, even Linux.
The short answer is MAYBE, it will depend on how new the phone is, if you have a supported browser and if the screen size is big enough, if the screen size is too small you will have a hard time using it to draw plays. We recommend a tablet instead.
For Internet Explorer you must have 11+, otherwise a version of Firefox, Chrome, Opera or Safari that is not more than a year old will be fine. If you have an old browser you really should update it, all of the popular browsers are free to update.
