FAIR PLAY is an application that allows coaches, team managers and teachers to substitute players on and off the field of play fairly and without having to spend time looking at the clock and answering the ever-present question... "When am I back on?" A built-in timer clearly indicates when the player can return to the field of play and, which player (or players) need to be next substituted. This substitution app is revolutionary and will assist the coach of any junior sport where substitution is necessary.
FAIR PLAY is available on both the iOS and android platforms and can be easily downloaded from the Itunes App Store and the GooglePlay Store. Choose your store below to download the FAIR PLAY APP now and get started immediately.

3. The Master List:
Create your Master List of players (ie: entire team or class). This list will be saved however, alterations may be made if required. The Master list will be saved to prevent you re-creating the list of players/team members each week. Tick off the available/present/participating players on the Master List to create your Sub List for a particular game (ie: perhaps only 8 members of your 10 registered players are available to play). Once you have ticked your available/present/participating players, the Sub List of actual, present players is created. To remove a player from the Master List, simply swipe left.
4. The Sub List:
The Sub List is the list used for substituting players. You may move the position of each player in this list by touching the three bars to the right of the players name and dragging into desired position. To remove a player from the Sub List, simply untick the player on the Master List.

7. Substitution Alarm:
Select an alarm from the 5 available options (Bloom, Calypso, Choo Choo, Descent, Fanfare). This alarm will sound with three bursts after the substitution time has finished counting down. Simultaneously, the next player/set of players will be clearly identifyed in bold text and, the Transition Timer will begin to count down.
8. Transition Time:
Select a transition time from the 6 available options (0sec, 10sec, 30sec, 1min, 2min, 5min) to allow players time to be moved on and off the field of play before the substitution timer begins for the next player/set of players.
9. Transition Alarm:
Select an alarm from the 5 available options (Bloom, Calypso, Choo Choo, Descent, Fanfare). This alarm will sound with three bursts after the transition time has finished counting down.

Tally marks clearly indicate how many players have been substituted. These tally marks will stay visable until they are cleared by the user.

15. Example of how FAIR PLAY can be used:
Touch Football - The team has 10 registered players on the master list. On a particular game day, after the relevant boxes are ticked identifying available/present/participating players, a sub-list of 8 players is created. 6 players are on the field at any given time so, 2 substitutes are on the sideline (player numbers 1 and 2 from the sub-list). Selected substitution time is 3 minutes and alarm chosen. Selected transition time is 30 sec and alarm is chosen. The start button is pressed. A tick will appear, automatically, against the names of the first two players (players 1 and 2 of the sub-list) and the substitution timer begins the three minute count down. The alarm will sound for 3 bursts after which, the transition timer will automatically start the selected 30 second count down. At this point, players 1 and 2 will be substituted with players 3 and 4 (from the sub-list). Once the transition timer alarm sounds for 3 bursts, a tick will appear against the names of the next two substituted players (players 3 and 4 from the sub-list) indicating that they have been taken from the field of play and the subsequent substitution timer will begin the 3 minute count down, and so on. Use the pause button in the event of injury or the like that may disturb the time of play.
