The Headfirst Difference

Access • Guidance • Experience

The Most Access to College Coaches

Our camps are designed to guarantee more access to college coaches than any other high-academic showcase camp and to ensure that every coach sees every athlete play – both in the showcase and in games. We also purposefully build unassigned time into each college coach’s schedule to allow for off-field conversations and to make connections with student-athletes.

Insight & Guidance for Athletes and Parents

We want you to be in the best position possible to generate interest with top college programs. From guidance for student-athletes on strategies for talking to college coaches and making that key initial contact, to helping parents navigate this often overwhelming journey, we host seminars and discussions and seek out one-on-one conversations to provide the most insight possible.

Deep Bench of Experience

We’ve been there. Literally. Each of our events is staffed with a dynamic, engaging team of former or current high-academic student-athletes. This Headfirst team has dreamed as you dream and lived a journey similar to the one you’re currently on. We cherish the opportunities to connect with like-minded student-athletes on and off the field and provide answers and encouragement along the way.
