Gateway Field Hockey Leagues
Offered in fall, winter, and spring
Gateway Leagues are open to athletes in JK-12th grade that are interested in playing league games on a weekly basis during the seasons. Gateway was the first club in St. Louis to offer professionally run field hockey leagues and have been doing so for over 15 years. In the fall, high school athletes are competing in their school seasons so they cannot participate in league. 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 Vetta Concord, Villa Duchesne, and/or Elite Performance. Leagues consists of grade division teams competing weekly in a team game format. Games consist of a 15-18 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. Leagues fill quickly, so please register early.
Note: Leagues are included for all three Club programs. Year Round Elite Club members receive all three league seasons. Junior Club and High School Prep Club memberships receive the season they are participating in. All Club athletes will automatically be placed on a league team.
Fall Covid Update: In the event that we are not in the phase in St. Louis County that allows for full competition, we will do small sided games within the assigned teams during the league game time.
