Soccer Game 

The SLAC soccer group, made up of employees, users and friends, have been playing on site since around 1970. We have a friendly pick-up game every Tuesday and Thursday at noon, and everyone is welcome. For many years, the game was played in the main quad area - before there was a fountain - moving to a less bumpy field at the Arrillaga Recreation Center after it opened.

There is a traditional game with / against SSI participants. The game this year is scheduled for Wednesday Aug/14 after Project time. The walk from Kavli Auditorium to the field at Arrillaga Recreation Center is ~15 minute, and we plan to have the game start at 18:00.

Players at all levels are welcome. Please remember that we are not playing in the World Cup! Team size (and field size!) will be adjusted depending on the number of participants, and substitution is encouraged so everyone can play. Play competitively but no slide tackles or other similarly aggressive moves - we want everyone to enjoy the game and to go home without injuries. If you are interested in playing, please remember to bring your soccer equipment: cleats, shin guards etc. and pay attention to this page for updates on e.g. team jersey color later.  

Spectators are welcome as well. 

Everyone (players and spectators) is asked to fill in the sign-up sheet to help us plan for drinks and refreshments. Players will also need to sign a liability waiver form at SSI registration desk. Please check later for updates and signup.
