Honor Roll Camps

Headfirst Honor Roll Camps are open to rising or current high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, and our baseball prospect camps in the California region are the best showcases for academic high school baseball recruits. Our mission is to provide a platform through which student-athletes can play with purpose to achieve their goals of playing baseball at the next level. We strive to create an environment where student-athletes can perform at their very best in order to create their opportunity in front of a targeted group of engaged college coaches, who are watching their every move. We aim to empower each student-athlete with the knowledge that they have the ability to shape the outcome that they want in the recruiting process through the time and effort that they put in.

All Headfirst Honor Roll Camps include:

  • Demonstrating skills during “Showcase morning” — including defensive showcase, batting practice & objective measurements
  • Opportunities to receive instruction from and interact with the country’s best college coaches
  • No fewer than four (4) live games (2 per player each day), with college coaches performing on-field and in-dugout instruction throughout
  • Chances to gain valuable information, perspectives on the college recruiting process, and where individual players stand within it

Schedule

Arrival Time & Check-In

Players should plan to arrive for check-in between 7:00 and 7:30am on the first day of camp. Camp programming will begin at 7:40am. All players will be given a Dri-Fit numbered jersey to wear during the event.

Typical Schedule, Day 1

While event schedules may be adjusted depending on weather, Day 1 typically includes coach introductions, offensive and defensive showcases and objective measurements (including 60-yard dash and exit velocity), prep stations, all-camp talks from college coaches and 4 simulated games (each player will participate in 2 of these 4 games). For half of the teams, the day will end around 7:30pm, while the late games will end around 9:30pm.

Typical Schedule, Day 2

Report times will be based on Day 1’s team assignments and will be communicated during the evening of Day 1. Players who finish in the early game slots on Day 1 will be in the first game slots on Day 2 (likely a 7:45 report time), and players who had the late games on Day 1 will have the late morning games on Day 2 (likely a 9:45 report time). We will host an optional college recruiting seminar for parents in the morning before each team’s first game. We will then play 4 games (2 per student-athlete). The early game slots will conclude around 3:30pm and the final round of games will end by approximately 5pm.

Information for Pitchers

Primary pitchers should be prepared to throw 2 innings each day (5 hitters per inning). If primary pitchers, for any reason, would rather throw only one inning, our Pitching Coordinator will help assist in making the adjustment. Secondary pitchers should be prepared to throw 1 inning (5 hitters) each day.

My experience at Headfirst Honor Roll was without a doubt greater than any other showcase that I could have gone to or have been to. The staff there was amazing and helped me whenever I needed help and the camp is run so us players had as much communication with college coaches as possible. It is a well-run camp that I highly recommend to any player wishing to play at the next level. 2016 Headfirst Baseball Honor Roll Camper
