TARSA Soccer Program

TARSA is the Tampa Area Recreational Soccer Association, a Tampa Bay Area soccer league for kids aged 12 to 18 years of age. Approximately 150 teams and 16 clubs in Hillsborough and surrounding counties participate in TARSA. While the league is not a “competitive” program, it offers players a little more competition than an in-house rec league might offer.

Registration Fee: $250

Early Registration Discount: Players who register before midnight on September 9, 2020 will receive a $20 discount off the registration fee.

Sibling Discount: There is a $10 discount offered for each additional player.

Equipment: The club will provide 2 jerseys, one pair of shorts and two pairs of socks. You are required to supply cleats, shin guards and a size #5 ball.

Age Groups Offered:


U12 Boys and Girls

U14 Boys

U16 Boys

U19 Boys


U12 Girls

U13 Girls

Note: If we don’t have enough players to form a team in a division, Coed teams will be formed. We also reserve the right to combine Age Groups, if needed.
