In college sports a prized recruit might be given the designation of a red shirt freshman. This means that can practice with the team, but will not play. It will mean that the student will be one year ahead of their athletic eligibility.
This term is related to college sports. The governing body for college athletics is the NCAA. College athletes are eligible to compete for up to five years, however, most sudent-athletes choose to graduate in four years. When a college freshman gets injured prior to their first college sports season or if they are not prepared to compete at the college level as a freshman, they have the option of red-shirting. This is a formal registration process with the NCAA which allows the athlete to preserve a year of their eligibility.
Yes, a player can redshirt once at any time during their collegiate career (with very limited exceptions for season-long injuries). If a player plays sparingly (or even is a every-play starter) as a freshman, they can still redshirt as a sophomore. After that season, they would be a junior in college, but considered a sophomore in terms of eligibility.
Redshirt is a term used in college athletics that refers to a delay or suspension of an athlete's participation in order to lengthen his or her period of eligibility. The player is required to wear a red shirt every game on the bench.
No, if a Red-shirt freshman plays in a bowl game, they lose that year of eligibility.
A redshirt freshman is a player who sits out their first year of attendance at a college. In NCAA rules you can only play four years. So if a team has a position already filled a player will redshirt for a year in order to maintain the full four years of eligibility for when the position opens up. When a player redshirts they are able to practice with the team and even play a minimal number of plays during the season.

It means Red Shirt Freshman. The player is on the team but wont actively be on the roster so they don't burn a year.
Soccer itself has no "red shirt" rule. The term "red shirt" as applied to college athletics is about eligibility to, in general, play for "another year" because a player "sat out a season" due to injury, scholastic performance or the like. The particulars may require a good bit of interpretation, but they are set down in the case of college athletics by the NCAA. A link to their site is provided.
A player that greyshirts starts his 5 year athletic eligibility the 2nd semester of his first year. He can then redshirt the following year and have 3.5 years of eligibility remaining. Since football is a first semester sport, he can then play 4 full seasons of football, having practiced with the team an additional 2 years, one as a grey shirt (practicing in the fall but not becoming a student until the spring) and one as a red shirt (enrolled and practicing, but not appearing in a game).
No, the grey shirt freshman cannot participate in team meetings, practice or weight train in any fashion not available to the general student population as a whole. They are essentially "on their own"
While both recipients of grey and red shirts attend classes at a school before participating in football games, the difference is in the player-to-be's time of enrollment:Via John Mackovic of The Desert Sun: "Grey shirt is a term used to designate an incoming freshman who waits until the second semester to enroll rather than the fall. Collegeathletes are allowed a five year calendar to play four seasons. The calendar begins once one is enrolled. By waiting until the spring to start college, a player will be playing his last season in the sixth year after high school rather than the fifth. "In contrast, infoplease.com explains that "When a player is given the "red-shirt" designation by his or her coach, that means he or she has participated in a college's academic year, but did not participate during that year's sports season. Most likely a "red-shirt freshman" in college football is a sophomore in college who practiced with the team his first year, but did not play in any games (at the coach's request), or was seriously injured during his first season." By redshirting, a player gains an opportunity to learn schemes and techniques, rehabilitate an injury, learn a new position and/or physically develop without losing a year of eligibility.

Grayshirt is a term used when an athlete is accepted as part of the team, but delays his enrollment at his future college. This is done so that his eligibility clock does not start until he starts school during the second semester.
