2021 Gateway Summer Programs

  • 2021 Gateway Summer Programs

    Gateway is thrilled to offer a variety of summer programs for athletes of all ages and abilities.  We know summer is a time for travel, rest and relaxation, so we have curated programs that can serve anyones needs.  We have two four day traditional camps for an intensive but fun learning experience for all ages.  Elite clinics are great one day options that provide athletes with high intensity training on skill specific concepts during July.  And lastly, everyone loves to play games! So we are offering a six session gameplay option where athletes can play small sided games with friends, but not to worry, if you can't make a week we play pickup style so the teams change every week!  We even have a college and experienced adults section!  Goalies are free to play all summer!

Gateway Summer Offerings

Gateway Field Hockey is the leader in St. Louis summer camps!  With two sessions held each summer, we have coached thousands of athletes throughout the years.  Both camps are a great opportunity to develop individual and team skills in a fun and progressive setting.  Over 400 athletes attended Gateway Camps in 2020 and 2021 is sure to be our best yet!

Camps are open to beginner, intermediate, and elite players in grades K-12th and athletes will be grouped based on age, ability, and school at camp.  Both camps are great younger athletes wanting to learn the game as well as high school athletes preparing for their upcoming high school season!  The camp curriculum consists of skill development as well as gameplay for all athletes.

Camps are held at SportPort International on water turf and field turf. Gateway always employs knowledgeable, professional, and excited high school and collegiate coaches as well as current and former college players that are excited to coach each of you.  We hope you join us this summer for our 36th year of Gateway Camp in St. Louis!
