Gateway Elite Club

Practices, Games, and Tournaments

Elite Club is our highest program at Gateway Field Hockey!  In 2021 Gateway was named by USA Field Hockey, the National Club of the Year!  Elite Club is a year round program with practices and games throughout the spring, fall, and winter as well as camp and clinics in the summer.  Elite Club teams also play in local, regional, and national level tournament.  The traditional enrollment time for Elite Club is in February/March for the start of the spring season, however we do allow athletes to join Elite Club midway through if their experience is strong enough and they have the desire to join.  Elite Club is open to players with strong individual and team skills that want to train and play at a high level and are committed to the sport.  Athletes in Elite Club are absolutely able and encouraged to play other sports, as we want well rounded athletes, but field hockey should be a priority. Elite Club players do need an Elite Club uniform.  If you think your child is ready for Elite Club and would like to join for the remainder of the 22/23 season, please REGISTER HERE and use discount code FALL2022. Players must be able to commit for fall and winter season as the Elite Club season runs from March 2022 through February 2023.  The 2022/23 fees are prorated for the remainder of the year with the discount code however camp is not included for fall registrants.
