Q: My child is a 2008 high school freshman, can they sign up?

A: If your child is already in High School and they are part of a Freshman, JV or Varsity team then they should
not sign up for this first round of SSF. 

Q: Are the clinics beneficial for Goalkeepers?

A: The clinics are beneficial for all players regardless of position. However, if you are a serious GK and the TPT clinic conflicts with Bend FC 'GK' training, we encourage you to attend the 'GK' specific training.

Q: Can I sign up if I my child is younger than 5th grade?

A: No! The SSF clinics are specific to age/grade. 5th grade is our youngest grade and SSF is not designed or beneficial
for younger players.

Q: Can I go in the 6:15pm timeslot even though I am a 5th/6th grader?

A: No! The intensity in the 2nd hour increases due to the age and physicality of the players.
