FAQ

What kind of training can my son expect?
This will be a rigorous training experience that introduces young quarterbacks to the kind of mental and physical preparation needed for the NFL Draft. Training will be customized based on the age and skill of each participant and is suitable for quarterbacks of all levels. We do require that participating quarterbacks have experience playing organized football for a school and/or club program. Participants must be willing to work hard, be coachable and be on their best behavior.

Why is this event scheduled during the school week?
Although the Senior Bowl is played on a Saturday, most Senior Bowl events happen during the week, including team practices. To maximize the opportunity and give participants the most memorable experience, we believe it’s important to hold the event when Senior Bowl players and NFL coaches are present and available. We regret that our participants will likely need to miss school, but hope that the educational and motivational benefits of this one of a kind experience will justify their absence. We are happy to provide documentation to your child’s school to confirm attendance and program itinerary.

Are parents allowed to attend?
Parents are allowed to attend and watch events and are invited to join us for the Thursday evening meal. Due to space limitations, we may not be able to accommodate parents for the Saturday morning film session. Please note that parent/family member tickets to the Senior Bowl game must be purchased separately. To do so, please click visit seniorbowl.com for ticket information.

What should my child bring/wear for training?
Players should bring water and dress appropriately based on weather conditions. All football training will occur outside.

What is your refund policy?

If you need to cancel, refunds will be given if cancellation occurs on or before January 21. Please note that we cannot provide a refund for Senior Bowl tickets.

Who can I contact if I have questions?
