The program is designed to handle up to twelve separate sessions during the season. You will specify the week for each split and whether to have separate stats for each session. Stats can be reset at each split for teams only, players only or both teams and players.
You can enter your own schedule or use the ones that are provided with the program for league sizes of 4 to 34 teams (even numbers only). The entire schedule can be entered at the start of the season or weekly as the data is entered. Any schedule can be customized for position weeks.
You can enter as many position weeks as you need.
Scratch, individual or team handicapping. Individual handicapping can be different for men and women or other categories. Team handicapping uses either the standard method of the percentage of the difference between the team average and a scratch score or the team difference method of the percentage of the difference between the competing teams' averages.
Standings and awards can be sorted by either scratch or handicap totals.
UNEARNED SCORES (PINS IN BOWLING)
Absentee and vacancy scores (pins in bowling) can be credited to a team.
UNBOWLED SETS (FRAMES IN BOWLING)
Each game of competition in bowling consists of ten frames. Other sports will label these sets differently. Any game in bowling that is not played or not completed will have unbowled frames. This can happen if a player arrives late, leaves early or is injured. Any game can be designated as having unbowled frames. This feature can also be used to designate pre-played or post-played games that you want to count for wins and losses but not credit to the team.
You specify the number of points to award to a team for winning a game, a series, and the high game in series. Forfeits, absentee and vacancy scores are easily processed by the program. You can also specify whether a team automatically wins if the opposing team forfeits or if they have to beat their average minus an offset to win.
MATCH POINT LEAGUE
Fully supported by the program with option to include Peterson Bonus Points.
Many options are provided for changing or modifying the setup of the league. Raw scores and statistics can also be edited in the registered version.
