Default Roster Sizes

I have noticed a trend particularly in ECNL/DA/NPL level where teams create very big rosters from 22-26 players. Is there any legitimate reason to do this? After all it's kids soccer and I would think the kids just want to play.

They can scrimmage 11v11 in practice without having to invite another team.

I canít answer the GDA reason, but if you notice many ECNL and NPL rosters within clubs have duplicate listings. If a player is not registered with an ECNL team, they can not play in an ECNL game should there be injuries or absences. Most ECNL teams will roster some of their 2nd team players so they always have the option of pulling up players. It also gives those players the opportunity to attend ECNL events

Yes it happens but not that often. Most don't go bigger than 22. And yes some are dual rostered; a lot of spill over ECNL players play on the aggregate team

Also ECNL sub rules make it easier to give players on a bigger roster decent PT vs GDA.

Even those sub rules cant handle a roster of 22 players. That is ridiculous.

How can the U19 NYSC GDA roster 25 players? NYCFC has 19 for that age group. Isn't the DA rule only 16 players can per game?

that isn't the point and no need for the hostile reply. the op said that an ECNL team couldn't get 22 players enough playing time with unlimited subs. so with only 5 subs in a game and no reentry, how does a coach manage a DA roster of 25? NYCFC has maintained a more manageable roster size.
