Gateway Field Hockey Academy Skills and Drills

  • Offered in fall, winter, and spring

    Academy is a great option for a beginner or intermediate players that love field hockey and want to develop their skills without a huge commitment of time to the sport. They may sign up for individual sessions in fall, winter, and/or spring. Athletes in Academy train one time per week and do not have to play in the league on the weekends, but can up for league if they would like to play games on the weekends.  Academy sessions are typically seven weeks and coincide with Gateway league during each season (spring, fall, and winter). Academy is a great stepping stone before joining Gateway Club. 

    Each week the Academy coaches focus on various skills including: passing, receiving, hitting, sweeping, lifting, defending, 2v1 concepts, goal-scoring, attacking, and much more!  

    We also offer a GK Training Academy!
