2022 Gateway Summer Programs

  • 2022 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 everyone's needs.

    We have our two four day Gateway Summer Camps for an intensive but fun learning experience for all ages. Gateway Camps have been around for nearly 40 years!  New this summer is our Gateway Mini Sticks Camp, which is open to our youngest athletes in PK through rising 4th grade.  They are a perfect introductory mini camp offered in July.  Elite Clinics are great options that provide experienced athletes high intensity training and skill development.  Similar to last year we will have our Gateway Fit Club program (which is included for our HS Elite and HS Prep Club players) and involves fitness training during July to help prepare for the fall season.  Lastly, everyone loves to play games! So we are offering Gateway Summer Open Play, a five 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 adults open play! Goalies are free to play in the summer pickup!

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 700 athletes attended Gateway Camps in 2021 and 2022 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 37th year of Gateway Camp in St. Louis!
