Winter Training

Winter training will start on the 9th of January and conclude on the 20th of March at St. John’s University on Gagliardi Field in the Skalicky Dome.  There is no training on Super Bowl Sunday February 13th.  Click here for directions.

In order for all players to maximize winter training opportunities we will be training players by age groups versus by teams.  Training will be conducted by trainers, and coaches are encouraged to attend as they are available.  Players are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible. As we continue to refine rosters on teams, some players have been identified to train with older age groups.

Winter Training Gear – We recommend players bring:

  • A Ball (Size 4 for U9-U12 or Size 5 for U13-U19)
  • Plenty of fluids 
  • Be dressed in athletic or soccer attire.
  • Including cleats and shin guards. 
  • We suggest that players who wear glasses use a strap, as well as players who require prescription eyeglasses
  • Winter training at the dome can get cold, we recommend dressing in layers.

Goalkeeper Sessions

We will be offering goalkeeper training sessions every Sunday during winter training for team goalkeepers and for any player who has an interest in learning the position. We encourage all to attend as many as you want. Sessions will run the younger ages separate from the older ages.

If a goalkeeping session is at the same time as your winter training, please let your trainer or coach know that you will be attending the goalkeeping session and they will direct you where to go.


Any questions, feel free to reach out to the Travel Director, Nicole Rykhus, at travel.sartellsoccer@gmail.com. We look forward to seeing you out at winter training!
