Athletics Overview:   
 “Citizen, Scholar, Athlete”
                                               
 
Mission Statement: From its founding in 2009, Gateway College Prep School's leaders have believed that physical activity is valuable for its own sake and that vigorous exercise is complimentary to the educational purposes of the school.  Within this context for human development, it is the mission of Gateway College Prep's Department of Athletics to offer a wide range of high quality programs that will encourage and facilitate all participants to realize opportunities for athletic participation, physical fitness, health and well being.

Because of this mission a competitive athletic program is offered. Gateway College Preparatory School is a member of the University Interscholastic League (UIL) and the Texas High School Lacrosse League (THSLL).  Over 1,000 Texas public schools compete in the UIL making the UIL one of the worlds largest extracurricular youth organizations.  UIL member schools are assigned to UIL conferences and districts based on total high school enrollment.  

Our basketball, baseball, cross country, softball, track & field and volleyball teams compete in UIL Conference 3A (high school enrollment 221 - 479) against similar size schools such as Jarrell, Lago Vista, Florence, Blanco, Comfort, etc.  Our soccer and swimming teams compete in UIL Conference 4A-5A (enrollment 480 -  2,149), and our lacrosse teams compete in the THSLL against large club programs and private schools.  All of our teams seek the best competition so we schedule non-district games against UIL Conference 3A, 4A and even 5A size schools and local private and parochial schools in the Central Texas area. 
 
Students who participate in the UIL/THSLL sanctioned sports may do so during the school day athletic period and receive credits toward graduation.  Club team (non UIL/THSLL sports) participants may receive PE credit.  
 
School sponsored UIL/THSLL teams & club teams*  for school years 2016 - 17 will include:

·         Co-ed Tennis     
 
* Non UIL/THSLL club teams practice and compete outside the school day.  Students who want to join a club team are charged a Club Fee to help cover the costs of coach stipends, uniforms, facility rental fees, game and tournament entry fees, etc.
