SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (02AUGUST2010) The prestigious Surf Cup soccer tournament held on the beautiful fields of Del Mar, California brings together some of the best soccer teams from across the USA every year. An invite to this tournament alone is an achievement... success against this field is an accomplishment on another level. The Slammers sent seven teams southbound on the 5.
Slammers teams have a history of rising to the occasion against the best of the best. This event is no exception. The GU18s reached the quarterfinals, the GU17s made the elite super group semi-finals, the GU16s were super group finalists, and the GU13s and GU15s were both crowned champions... an absolute awesome showing considering the level of competition. A great job by all teams.

Amazing Story of Overcoming Odds
OAKS POLO FIELDS, CALIFORNIA (22NOV2009) - Slammers FC GU19 Wins League Cup Championship. After playing most of the season with 10 players and no subs the GU19 Slammers FC Silver Elite team were not on anyone's radar to go deep in League Cup. The GU19s snuck into the Round of 32 as a wild card... and then they slowly and systematically defied the odds and proceeded to beat 3 Gold and 1 Premier level team en route to the Finals and the opportunity to face another Premier team and League Cup favorites, the California Stars. After having a first half goal called back the girls went into half 0-0. Two second half goals found the back of the net for the Slammers and the girls who found friendship and fun all season long added another piece of hardware to the crowded Slammers family shelves. Speaking of family... the GU19 team had added players on the sidelines for the final game... their little sisters, the GU10 Silver Elite team cheered all game. It is safe to say a few of the GU19 parents realized how quick the last 8-9 years past after seeing the GU10 team running around playing together on the sidelines. The GU19s approached the Coast Soccer League Cup Championship with the same attitude they approached their season... have fun and play together as a team.
(Above and Below) The GU19 team and also 2009 League Cup Champions with their newest passionate supporters, the Slammers FC GU10 team.
