Gateway Showcase

The Gateway Showcase is designed to provide "early in the season" opportunities for potential college bound athletes to display their talents in front of many college coaches. The Gateway Showcase is supported by the same group that organizes the Blue Chip Showcase. Our goal is to create a high quality event. To do this, the Gateway will have a limited number of teams across a limited number of fields. The Gateway will play on synthetic turf across a few locations all within minutes of each other, guaranteeing all games get played.

The Gateway Showcase, in its third year of existance last year, attracted nearly 150 college coaches over the two weekends. Kings Hammer SC welcomes teams from across the country and internationally to compete in the Gateway Showcase. 

PLEASE NOTE: This event is played over 3 days and is open to U15-U19 teams. The event is a showcase format with all teams playing 3 games. This means that some teams may 1 game per day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Friday games can begins as early as 1pm. We will host National League Conference games (Midwest, Great Lakes, Midsouth) and state league games (OSSL, KPL). We hosted over 100 MRL and state league games each weekend in 2017.
