Headfirst Honor Roll Camps are open to rising or current high school student-athletes of all classes (rising freshmen through rising seniors). Our mission is to provide a platform through which student-athletes can play with purpose to achieve their goals of playing softball 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

Ballplayers are welcome to travel to the Honor Roll Camp without an accompanying family member (though most do arrive with family) but will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the airport and ballpark.


Arrival Time & Check-In

Camp will begin on the morning of Day 1. Student-athletes and families will receive specific instructions for arrival time on Day 1 in advance of camp. Check-in generally takes place between 7:00am-8:00am with programming starting shortly thereafter.

Typical Schedule, Day 1

While event schedules can vary, Day 1 typically includes our offensive and defensive showcases (including speed assessment), an optional college recruiting seminar for parents, and no less than 2 games for student-athletes.

Typical Schedule, Day 2

Day 2 is comprised of additional simulated games. Once again, each student-athlete will participate in at least 2 of the 4 scheduled games. Our final round of games will end by approximately 4:30pm on Day 2.

Comparing Headfirst Honor Roll Camp to other events aimed at helping high school ballplayers pursue college athletics is like comparing life in the Major Leagues to a season spent in A-ball. There is Headfirst. And then there is everything else. Mike Barnicle, Journalist & Father of Headfirst Honor Roll Camper
