There are training breaks in November, March, and sporadically during the summer.  Elite Club members have the opportunity to play in local, regional, and national level tournaments throughout the year.

Gateway Club is a nationally ranked club for athletes in the U8, U10, U12, U14, U16, and U19 age divisions.

Important Notes

  • HS athletes do not participate in club during the fall HS season which is why their fees are less than non HS athletes. Please make note if you are in U14 but going into HS in the fall so you register with the correct fee.
  • If you plan to participate in all seasons of the "seasonal" club it is beneficial to do Year Round Elite Club instead as there is a discount included and EC includes one summer camp.

  • $20 discount for early bird registration on or before February 15th
  • $20 late fee for registrations after March 15th
  • All 2021/22 club members continuing this spring, must renew their membership before March 15th when registration closes
