Florida Youth Soccer Association
WELCOME TO THE TARSA SOCCER YOUTH RECREATIONAL SOCCER LEAGUE.
The season will start on October 29th and will run 10 games thru end of February. Most games will be on Saturdays but one weekend, we will have both Saturday and Sunday games. Some age groups depending on odd number of teams will play some Sundays.
TARSA (Tampa Area Recreational Scheduling Association) was instituted in 2000. The purpose of our league is a scheduling tool for the soccer clubs we support in area from Citrus, Hernando, Pasco and Hillsborough Counties within FYSA. The individual clubs have teams from the 12U thru the 19U age divisions for Coed and Girls age groups. Although we are not a competitive program and specialize in recreational soccer, there is some travel between clubs in area and scores along with standings are kept and a End of Season tournament is held each year to determine an age group champion in each gender.
REGISTRATION can be done through the club nearest you and is usually held in July, August and September. Play for each season usually runs from late October thru February. Recreational tournaments are held throughout the season also. Click on "Clubs & Locations" tab at top of page for more info on each club and to get to their web sites for the club nearest you.
TARSA has followed the guideline set by USYS and FYSA to move to calendar year instead of school year. TARSA has decided to have the following age groups initiated for the upcoming 2022-2023 season. For Coed we will stay the same as in the past, U12, U14, U16 and U19.
For Girls division, it has been determined that the better course is to emphasize the younger age groups for the girls so see below age groups.
Girls will have a U13 group playing on 9v9 field with size 4 ball. We will have a U14/U15 girls division on 11v11 field with size 5 ball. Finally, we will have a U16-U19 Girls High School Division.
Please see table below to determine which age group your teams will be in through your clubs. The clubs will be notified of this change and will register players accordingly. If players request to move up an age group, that decision will now be left to club DOC's and approving officials and approval through FYSA or TARSA is no longer needed. Absolutely no player will be approved to play down an age group. Playing up age groups is solely to the discretion of the clubs.

We all know that refereeing soccer games is easy. Well at least when you are on the sidelines. Referees seem to becoming extinct now a days. It is a thankless job and takes much patience to handle. Many younger referees have been turned off by all the negativity involved with players, coaches, families and friends. Well here is a chance to become that referee you always dreamed of. Becoming one only required an on line course and getting assigned to a referee assignor.
For more info on how to become a referee, please visit the below website.
Being a referee is a task as we continue to lose each year good young people as referees due to parent verbal abuse along with coaches and players being abusive also. It's easy to be on sidelines instead of middle of action but we applaud all referees for the dedication and service they provide our kids during a season. If you would like to earn some good money and become a referee, please visit the website listed below and learn how to register.
