Tallahassee Soccer Club is a volunteer run and operated, non-profit organization committed to improving our local community through soccer.
Community: a hyper focus on improving the local soccer community of players, fans, coaches and organizations. We believe in the power of community building through volunteerism, charity and inclusion.
People & Family: everyone belongs to our diverse family and deserve to be treated like it; members, players, fans and more. Also, puppies.
“The Battle”: a fierce desire to win through passionate competitiveness and a “never-give-up” mentality. Show up, commit, give your all for the team, club and community.
Communication: be open and transparent at all levels of the club; share information freely, actively listen and respond in a timely manner and be accountable to our community.
Our club was founded in 2018 by Chris Petley after working on the process for a year. In May 2018 we held a public unveiling in front of 150 people on a 100 degree Wednesday evening. We knew then that we were on to something.
In 2019, the club competed in the Gulf Coast Premier League and finished as the Eastern Conference Champion. That year also featured recognitions for Josh Bruno as the Eastern Conference Coach of the Year, Hugo Peruzzi as GCPL Goalie of the Year and Aron Wimberly, Johnny Fitzgerald and Boneco Bazil as members of the Eastern Conference Best 11. The team recognized Hugo Peruzzi as the Fan Voted Player of the Year and the Defensive Player of the Year. Aron Wimberly was recognized as the Team MVP, Boneco Bazil was the Offensive Player of the Year and Michael Seng was the Golden Board winner.
Our 2020 Season was cancelled due to Covid.
In 2021, we began play in the Gulf Coast Conference of the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL). We competed up until the final game of the year for a playoff spot, but fell short with our result in Mobile, AL. That season, Joe Peralta was named to the All Region and National Team. Our team awardees were: Johnny Fitzgerald, Member Voted Player of the Year, Cameron Earls, Team MVP, Sy Fontenot, Attacking Player of the Year, Sammy Friedrich, Defensive Player of the Year, Mateus Bitencourt, Young Player of the Year.
We once again played in the NPSL for the 2022 season, though we did not have a ton of on the field success. Sy Fontenot and Jack Chambers were named to the South Region Team of the Year for the NPSL. Our own season awardees were: Johnny Fitzgerald, Player of the Year, Bosco Pery, Defensive Player of the Year, Sy Fontenot, Offensive Player of the Year, and Andrew Geyer, Young Player of the Year.
Community soccer is about individuals joining together to bring their passion to life. We live here, we planted roots here, and we want to continue to make Tallahassee the place we love. Tallahassee Soccer Club is community driven, family friendly, and locally supported by design. This club belongs to all of us, and it will take our community working together to make it happen.
