go grizzlies!

The mission of the SLOCA Athletic Department is to build excellence and character both in sports + in life. Even in our Athletics program at SLOCA, we are committed to a love of learning and strive to develop in our athletes technical and teamwork skills as well as a robust love of the game. We also embrace a model that balances academic and family commitments with our practices and competitions.

Our Athletics Program is an integral part of our culture here at SLOCA.  We offer athletics starting in Kindergarten, where kids up to 4th grade engage in intramural-based play.  At the Middle School level, we are involved in league play, with our own division and league titles.  We are CIF-sanctioned at the High School Level.  We are also one of the only schools to have a rock climbing club sport; the Bouldering Bears is open to all levels and meets at the Pad in SLO.

Last year was a breakthrough year in SLOCA Athletics: 

  • We took home all championships (flag football, basketball, and volleyball) at the Middle School boys level.  
  • We went to the CIF playoffs for both girls and boys volleyball at our High School level.
  • Girls High School volleyball won the David Low Tournament.
  • One of our volleyball coaches, Isabel Mitchell was awarded High school boys coach of the year. 

GO GRIZZLIES!

Last year, 55% of students participated in SLOCA athletics.

We are always looking for college students and adults to join our great purpose and vision for athletics!  If you are interested and available to coach, please let us know at athletics@sloclassical.org.
