The REC Foundation which manages robotevents.com has changed the TSA registration for this year.  

In the past VRC (Non-TSA) teams and TSA teams used the same registration process and used the same team numbers. As of last year teams, TSA and VRC both paid the $150 registration fee to become an official team.

Now REC Foundation has split the VRC and TSA.  To become a VRC team each team pays $150 to register.  To become a TSA team the fee is $0.  If you have a VRC number you will NOT be able to register that team for a TSA event.  Instead you will need to create a TSA team ($0 fee) and then you can register for TSA events.  The TSA team numbers are automatically generated so you will not be able to choose a number. 

TSA Competitions will be known as TVRC

IQ Competitions will be know as TIQC
