Soccor Coordinator help

Hi, I'm just starting out with the Soccer Coordinator app for the iOS tech degree. I think I created a dictionary for each soccer player, ( i.e. let player1 = [name: "name", height: "height, experience: "YES", guardian: "guardianName"), with each players information assigned to each key. I then created an array the dictionaries, (let array = [player1, player2, player3, ect.). I'mm having trouble with iterating through the dictionaries to sort the players by their attributes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Jason, I am not sure if we are allowed to use any of the array sorting capabilities or not cause they weren't really covered, so one option I am working on is to add some metadata for each player to aid in a home-grown iterative sort, i.e. a sort tag made up of experience and height, for example This way, I am not using something that maybe wasn't covered, will comment that this would have been preferred, but will simply iterate and flag-as-assigned through my array of players until all consumed and assigned to the three teams. Thinking maybe a player with experience and 42" high could be tagged for sorting purposes as 142, and a player without experience and 46" high might be 046. Then I work down from high to low. Just a thought.
