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 for age groups 12U- 19U.  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. Currently, the Florida Hawks participate in this program for our 12U-19U age groups only.

If available, the link to the current Fall  TARSA schedule can be found here.

Because TARSA is a Fall season only program, Florida Hawks FC will form teams for our in-house recreational program up to the 19U age group for the Spring season. Please click here for information on the Spring recreational season program for 13U-19U age groups.
