Auto Team Creator/Random Roster Generator

Our organization is trying to seek an alternative to the player draft process to form teams that we currently have. As is, sometimes too much adult interaction when deciding what players go which team can result in an unbalanced league. Even when the intent is to prevent that. 

Wondering if SE could provide a Random Team Generator within the constructs of its rostering tools, where teams can be formed at random - and with filters - so they are as balanced "on paper" as can be. Filters could include: Skills ranking, gender, hometown, coaching, age, grade, etc.... AND with the ability to have flexibility where edits could be made (if need be) after the random team generator has be used.

    @HYA Admin - thanks for the product idea.  SE is always looking to improve the rostering process so the above is helpful to hear.  The easier we make the rostering process, less time you as a volunteer have to spend.  We did just release new rostering features on April 2nd that made the rostering process more efficient and streamlined.  You can choose which registration data you want appearing in the rostering UI plus having advanced filter functionality that allows you to filter the view to your specification.  Add to the that the simple drag and drop feature, this will help balance and streamline the creation of the teams.
