HEY SLOWS! –
SLO Parks and Rec has just contacted us – they have closed the fields as of 12PM tomorrow due to the rainstorm that is predicted to come in. We WILL NOT have games this Sunday, March 11th.
Below is a revised schedule for the remainder of the season. Here is a link to a printable PDF.
We have the fields for another 5 weeks, and as voted on at the January meeting, we have now scheduled for all 12 of the Sundays available to us according to the permit that we applied for.
PLEASE NOTE: We do take a break on April 1st for Easter, and since we are the lowest on the priority list for the City, we didn’t get the fields on April 8th due to a youth tournament.
Enjoy your weekend!!
Due to the amount of rain we’ve received, the City of SLO has closed Damon Garcia for this coming weekend.
Please inform your teams accordingly. Games will be made up the next available rain-free weekend.
Hope you are all enjoying your Spring 2018 season so far!!
This is just a quick reminder that there are no games next weekend, February 4th. We’ll be back and at it on February 11th!
Enjoy your Superbowl parties!
Hi SLOWS – We need your help!
Do you happen to work or go to school with any other soccer-minded ladies?
Perhaps there’s a bulletin board that gets a lot of eyes on it during the day that you’d think would be perfect to get the word out about SLOWS?
Know some moms who are on the fence about re-kindling their long-lost love for the sport?
Well let’s recruit them!
Let’s grow our league back to 10 teams (and then some!).

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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.

With the loss of Surge, we are down to 8 teams total, so no team has a weekly bye.
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.
