Gateway Field Hockey Fall Programs
2019 Fall League and Mini Sticks
Gateway Field Hockey offers professionally run leagues in St. Louis for over 20 years. All of our leagues provide coaches and umpires on all games and are held on turf. K-8th grade divisiongames consist of a 15 minute warm up followed by 40-45 minute of game (played in two halves). Mini Sticks is open to PK, JK, and K athletes wanting to learn the game, they will practice skills and do fun small games rather then large organized games. All league games are all held on turf at Sport Port International and/or Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School. Parents do not have to coach or volunteer but are welcome to help if they would like. You can register as an individual or with friends to form a team. If you are registering with friends, please make note of friend requests in registration form below.
If you would like to practice (in addition to the games) please register for Fall Junior Club which includes Fall League and Games.
Games are held within the time block between 11am - 4pm on Sundays between September 8th and October 13th at Sport Port in Maryland Heights. Makeup date will be on Sunday, October 27th.

2019 Fall Academy
Fall Academy is a skills and drills training program for beginners and intermediates that are simply looking to learn and/or improve their personal game without the time commitment of Club and/or Leagues. Academy runs in from late August - October and focuses on different skills and concepts each week. Academy is different than Club because it DOES NOT include league games. All Academy sessions are held at SportPort International on water turf #3. Many athletes register for Academy and Spring League to enhance their training.
Note: Fall Academy begins the week after club practices and Academy athletes will be grouped together, they will not be grouped with club athletes. If you want your daughter to practice with the club athletes then you need to register her for that program.
