What is TARSA?

TARSA is an area association of recreational programs and is offered only in the Fall season.  TARSA is an acronym for Tampa Area Recreational Soccer Association ( and is a scheduling body open to area soccer clubs.  Playing TARSA feels a little like “travel soccer” because there are both home and away games playing other soccer clubs.  TARSA is a recreation play.  There are no tryouts, the season is shorter, everyone plays at least ½ the game, the coaches are volunteers, etc. just like in-house club recreation.

Because TARSA is a Fall season-only program, Florida Hawks FC will form teams for our in-house recreational program up to the U19 age group for the Spring season.

Age Groups

Eligible Age Groups: U11-U19

Players are divided into an Age group based on the year in which they were born. FYSA and US Soccer use these "Age Groups" to define field size, team composition, and ball size.
