Pool Player

A pool player is registered player on the RDYSL Roster. Pool players are eligible per RDYSL to play in all league games, but share a roster position with other pool players and will not be listed on all game rosters. Pool players will be guaranteed to play in 3 games. At the coach’s discretion, Pool players can be selected to play in additional games where full-rostered players are unavailable. There are typically 16 or 17 full rostered players and 2-6 pool players. This option is only available to the U13 and older age groups.

Pool Player Fee includes all of the following:

  • Insurance, NYSWYSA and RDYSL registration fees
  • Minimum of 3 RDYSL games, with the possibility of playing in 8-10 games
  • 1 tournament
  • Fields and Training Equipment
  • VSC Travel Uniform

Pool play is a process that can be used by a coach in age groups U13 and older when their roster is above 18 players. It allows the “sharing” of the 18 game day roster positions between the 18 and up to the 22 roster position (max allowed by RDYSL). This can be, and should only be, utilized when a team’s roster is above 18 players.

Example:

Team A has a roster of 19 players. Players 18 and 19 have been identified as the pool players, (most likely objectively through the tryout process). Players 18 and 19 will share the 18th roster spot on game days. In this example, 2 players will each only be eligible to play in 6 games for the season, thus allowing Team A to have 19 players and still game roster 18 players for each game. These players are full members of the team but are only eligible for half the games. The pool play position can be used up to the allowable roster size of 22 players. If there were 4 pool players identified on a team, in a 12 game season, each player would be eligible to play in 3 games each. This does not guarantee playing time, as always playing time is up to the head coach. Pool play only guarantees that the player is eligible to play in those three games.
