A Showcase for Honour-Roll Student-Athletes
For baseball and softball players who are focused on excelling in the classroom as much as they do on the field, the Headfirst Honor Roll Camps could be a great option for you. As I have said before, there is a misconception that the most important thing is being seen by as many coaches as possible—what is more important is being seen by the right coaches that fit the vision of where you, or your son or daughter, want to compete.
Headfirst camps are the longest running and most attended showcase camps in the US for academically focused student-athletes. For their upcoming Northeast showcases they even have lists of university coaches that have committed to attending the events, you can view them here:
If a number of coaches/schools on these lists standout to you as potentially great fits for your post-secondary athletic and academic experiences, then Headfirst could be a great opportunity for the right exposure.
