Pool play is a process that can be used by a coach when their roster is above 18 players. It allows the “sharing” of the 18 roster position between the 18 and up to the 22 roster position (max allowed by RDYSL). This can be, and should be; only 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.
