The West Florida Flames/BAYSL Classic Soccer Program is a recreational soccer program that began in 1975. Teams are coached by a volunteer coach under the supervision of the director for the classic soccer program. These teams will play 8-10 games per season. The U5-U12 age groups will play in-house games on the weekend and U12 and above age groups will play in the Tampa Area Recreation Soccer Association (TARSA) league. All 4-7 year old players enter the West Florida Flames Classic Soccer program in the U5-U7 ages. When a player reaches the U8 age, they have the option of staying in the Classic Soccer Program or joining the West Florida Flames Elite Program (competitive soccer). We acknowledge competitive soccer may not be the best fit for all players for a variety of reasons ranging from physical abilities, time commitment issues, family conflicts, dual sport obligations, or financial concerns. The Classic Soccer Program offers a solid opportunity for players to continue to develop their skills and compete on their team in a setting they prefer that matches their level and interest.
The West Florida Flames (BAYSL) Classic Soccer Program offers three distinct seasons per year for players to enjoy soccer. Online registration now available:
