The Spring 2018 Season Schedule is Here!


Happy New Year! Ready for some soccer?

We are pleased to announce the Spring 2018 Schedule. Games start Sunday, January 21st.

As many of you know, we are playing at Damon Garcia once more, instead of the Cal Poly fields in seasons past. We have built in 5 extra rain-out weekends which can be worked into Redemption Tournament games if not used. Thats 12 weeks of soccer if we don’t get rained out! Woo hoo! 

SLOWS will be playing on fields B and the Daryl Damon upper field this season.

Fall 2017 Redemption Tournament Schedule

Hi SLOWS! Here is your Fall 2017 Redemption Tournament Schedule and information. 

Since we are an 8 team league this season and have had beautiful weather (fingers crossed!) with no rain outs, we are fortunate to still have the extra weeks that we have reserved on our contract available to us for normal play. For this reason we are able to have our tournament consist of FULL games, everyone will be guaranteed ALL 3 games and times will remain 9:00AM and 10:45AM! The first Round will be on 10/8/17, second 10/15/17, and final games of the season will be 10/22/17.

Update: Remainder of the Fall Season Schedule

Here’s an update from our Executive Board regarding the remainder of the season:

This week was the end of league play for our season and the standings will be used to determine placement for the end of the season tournament. Because Field A has been heavily used since the field opening, is already in terrible shape, and taking into consideration your safety, we have changed our permit for the remainder of the season and we will play on Fields B and C. 

The games for October 1st are friendlies, were picked at random (literally the team names were written on pieces of paper and two at a time drawn out of President Rachel’s hat), and give us the opportunity to play the 8th game we lost this season when we lost a team.

The games are as follows:

10/1 – Friendlies: 
Field B at 9:00AM-Vultures vs. Ice
Field B at 10:45AM-Sharks vs. Dynamite

Field C at 9:00AM-Lightning vs. Crush
Field C at 10:45AM-Napoli vs. Atlas

For the dates of 10/8, 10/15, and 10/22 we will be having a tournament that spans over these three dates. This will allow us to play FULL games over 3 weeks instead of playing 3 shortened games in one day. Placings on the bracket will be determined based on season rankings. Kory Fontes will distribute the schedule after all the results from Sunday and other missing season games have been submitted.

It is important that you submit all scores to as soon as possible. 

Thank you!

There will be 7 league games and 4 rain-outs/friendlies.

Team Reps: Please keep an eye out for Surge players looking to connect and join a team. We would like to keep them playing so we can have them back on the schedule in the Spring. If you know anyone that would like to play and you can’t fit them on your team please be sure to pass them to Surge for next season.

Fall 2017 News

Hi SLOWS! Hope you’re enjoying your summer! 

Just a quick note regarding the Fall 2017 Season so you can plan ahead: 

The season will be starting August 6, with no games Labor Day Weekend (but be sure to get a team together for the SLO Friendly Tournament!), with the Fall SLOWS Redemption Tournament on 10/29.  That builds us in two rain out weekends since we’ll be playing at Damon Garcia.  If we don’t use them, we will just have a gap in play, but we have 3 fields reserved for the 29th, so will keep it that weekend, regardless.
Team Reps: Deposits are due next month along with signed codes of conduct- remaining balances due at August 2 meeting. Layne will be sending out your Team documentation soon!

SLOWS Redemption Tournament – Spring 2017

First off – CONGRATULATIONS to Napoli, our Spring 2017 Season Champions!

And now down to business! Thank you for being patient with us while we worked out scheduling and such – our Spring 2017 Redemption Tournament Schedule is here! Games will be played on the Cal Poly Turf Fields. 

You may notice that Atlas and Surge are missing from the schedule – they are short players and won’t be able to field full teams. If any Surge or Atlas players would like to join another team for the tournament, please show up before the first game and we’ll fill in spots as needed! 

Please give yourself time to park and check in before the first games start. All players will receive a wristband so the usual check ins with the referees will not be necessary. 

In the event of a tie, there will be a 10-minute ‘Golden Goal’ overtime.  At the end of that 10 minutes you’ll move onto Penalty Kicks. 

Weather looks to be on the cool side, with a slight chance of rain, so please plan accordingly! 

Make-Up Games This Weekend!

How can it be that our Spring 2017 season is almost over?

Just a reminder that this weekend, April 30th, are the make-up games for the January 22 games when the fields actually DID get rained out due to standing water.

Times/Fields are below:

Please be aware that some surface streets will be closed due to the SLO Marathon/Half Marathon that is also on Sunday. Los Osos Valley Road and Foothill will be closed – please check here for all of the details.

Stay tuned for the Spring 2017 SLOWS Redemption Tournament schedule!

Spring Season Update – Are you having fun?

Hi SLOWS! Hope you’re having a great season so far out there on the Cal Poly Turf Fields.

Please be sure to send your scores to Kristina so she can update the standings:

Looks like this weekend we will miss the heavy rain, but it will be chilly out there!
Unless there is another crazy deluge, games are scheduled to go on like normal.

Have fun! 


Hi SLOWS – Sorry to bear the bad news, but the Cal Poly fields are flooded and they have cancelled all games this weekend.

Please pass the word along to your teams as soon as possible. Our League Coordinator is working on rescheduling the games and we will pass along that information as it becomes available.

Good news is that next weekend looks to be clear and sunny!
