In 2017, Tarr joined the USA Softball National Team coaching staff as an Assistant Coach for the Women’s National Team (WNT), helping guide the 2017 roster to a Gold Medal finish at the Pan American Championship in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.  Returning to the coaching staff in 2018, Tarr once again had a Gold Medal season with the WNT as the team captured back-to-back World Championship titles at the WBSC Women’s World Championship in Chiba, Japan.  In addition to their Gold Medal finish, Team USA also secured the first of four available berths to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, joining host country Japan who earned an automatic berth.
