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.
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.
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.
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.
Traveling From The West
For those flying, Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP) is the most convenient airport (about 20 minutes from Baseball Heaven) but both LaGuardia and JFK Airports (approximately 50 miles) are also possibilities. Baseball Heaven is located near Yaphank, NY on Long Island, in between I-495 and Route 27. For those flying home after Camp, it is best to get a flight at 6:30pm (ISP)/8:00 pm (LGA/JFK) or later if possible. Headfirst will not be able to provide rides to and from the airport.
Attending campers/families are not required to stay at a particular hotel, but Headfirst has arranged for discounted room blocks as follows:
Fairfield Inn & Suites
Residence Inn by Marriott — Holtsville
All campers will be responsible for their own lodging while at the Honor Roll Camp. Headfirst will not be able to provide rides to and from the airport.
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.
Headfirst provided a unique forum for my son to display his skills and ability. During the summer season, he had gone to several “high-profile” tournaments, yet gone relatively unnoticed by college scouts. After attending Headfirst, he was approached by 4 college scouts that wished to recruit him. The following week he had several other solid leads for excellent schools. The money we invested in this showcase was worth every penny. Father of 2012 Northeast Honor Roll Camperview more testimonials
