Gateway Leagues and Mini Sticks
Offered in fall, winter, and spring
Gateway Leagues and Mini Sticks are open to athletes in JK-12th grade that are interested in playing league games on a weekly basis during each seasons. Gateway was the first club in St. Louis to offer professionally run field hockey leagues and have been doing so for over 20 years. In the fall, high school athletes are competing in their school seasons so they cannot participate outside of school teams. In the winter and spring, leagues are offered for all ages. All leagues are held on outdoor turf fields at either Sport Port or Villa Duchesne, or indoors at STL Athletic Center and/or Villa Duchesne. Leagues consists of grade level teams competing weekly in a team game format. Games consist of a ~15 minute skills instructional warm-up followed by 40 minutes of gameplay (divided by two halves). We do our best to place athletes with other athletes from their schools and/or teammate requests. Mini Sticks includes fun skills/game development and progresses towards league play. Mini Sticks and Leagues fill quickly, so please register early.
Note: Year Round Elite Club members receive all league seasons. Prep Club members receive the season they are participating in. All Club athletes will automatically be placed on a league team and do not need to register for league.
