Covid-19 Guidelines Gateway Field Hockey follows return to sport guidelines put forth by St. Louis County Department of Health, the CDC and USA Field Hockey. In this ever changing time, we will communicate as quickly as possible any changes. The health and safety of our athletes and coaches is at the forefront of our planning. Highlights of the current guidelines for moderate frequency sports in St. Louis County... 1) Mask wearing for coaches, players, and umpires during indoor practices and games. Athletes do not have to wear masks at outdoor sessions (practices and games). 2) Social distancing as much as possible during skills and drills. 3) Coaches and players sanitize their hands and equipment frequently. Players should only use their own equipment (stick, waterbottle, etc). Players should come dressed and ready to participate. 4) Athletes and coaches will complete a health screening before each session and/or at the facility prior to entering. Parents, please check your athletes temperatures before they arrive. 5) Spectators are allowed for outdoor sports but are required to wear masks. Covid-19 Cancellation Refund/Credit Policy In the event of a mandated shutdown/cancellation of athletic programs across the St. Louis County region our refund/credit policy has two option as followed... Option 1 - A full 100% credit good for any future Gateway program without expiration date. The credit would be in the form of site credit and would be put into the parent(s) LeagueApps account for any future Gateway club, league, academy, camp, tournament, and/or clinic program. Option 2 - An 85% refund to the parent(s) credit card will be provided. The other 15% non-refundable administrative fee goes directly towards the program expenses that are paid well in advance. These expenses include but are not limited to - registration and payment fees, scheduling fees, field rental deposits, equipment, and hundreds of hours of time that are put into running programs before they even begin. We appreciate your support of Gateway Field Hockey as we navigate these incredibly difficult times. If you need to withdraw from an active or upcoming program, Gateway will provide a full or prorated site credit (without expiration) depending on how much of the program has been completed.
