The Tacoma Tides was an American soccer club based in Tacoma, Washington that was a member of the American Soccer League. Although not long-lived, the club is remembered today for its backup goalkeeper—well-known American soccer coach Bruce Arena.


In their only year of existence, the Tides finished 2nd in the ASL Western Division. They defeated the Utah Golden Spikers in the playoff quarterfinals, 2-1, then lost in overtime to the eventual champion Los Angeles Skyhawks in the semifinals by a score of 2-1.
