What if the best day ever made you better every day? Here at The Headfirst Companies, our goal is to continually cultivate a remarkable team whose mission is to develop and inspire the personal best in children, young adults, and each other. Together, we operate live academic & athletic experiential events – that are powered by the knowledge that all campers and athletes come to us with unique gifts and high potential. From pre-school to high school, our events unlock that potential by engaging participants wherever they are on their developmental journey with captivating programming, uplifting coaching & teaching, and age appropriate content centered around key social and emotional building blocks that we call The Headfirst Super Six™. These critical skills promote lasting happiness and success by fostering optimism, resiliency, goal-setting, emotional mastery, self-efficacy, and grit, and the challenge of their practice is our journey.
To put our mission into practice, we have built our reputation on a foundation of core values and proven results in developing and inspiring character and confidence, while operating three separate organizations: Headfirst Summer Camps, Headfirst Honor Roll Camps, and Headfirst Professional Sports Camps. Headfirst Summer Camps are award-winning STEM, STEAM, Sport, and Travel camps in the Washington, D.C., Bethesda, and Northern Virginia metro areas for children ages 3 to 13. Headfirst Honor Roll Camps are two-day baseball and softball camps that take place annually in California, Florida, D.C., and New York, and connect high school student-athletes with coaches from the country’s top academic colleges and universities for the nation’s most unique scholastic baseball and softball showcases. Headfirst Professional Sports Camps are operated in conjunction with the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Washington Nationals, and Atlanta Braves in each team’s home market. A series of one-week camps are offered to boys and girls ages 5 to 13 and feature four days of first-class baseball instruction and a private tour of the team’s ballpark on the fifth day. Together, The Headfirst Companies hosted more than 14,000 campers in 2017.
The Headfirst Professional Sports Camps mission is to enrich the lives of children nationwide by providing a fun and safe environment that simultaneously builds character and self-esteem. The Site Director brings the Headfirst Professional Sports Camps mission to life by using their passion both for baseball and for working with children to create a positive, high energy, life-changing experience for every ballplayer and staff member on site. The Site Director’s role is to supervise, coach, and provide constructive feedback to the Headfirst Professional Sports Camps leadership team and coaching staff, while working closely with Headfirst Headquarters to ensure that each ballplayer has a safe, enjoyable, and enriching experience at camp.
The Site Director must live Headfirst Professional Sports Camps’ core values at all times, acting as a role model for all staff and a pillar of dedication, integrity, and professionalism within the Headfirst Professional Sports Camps community. The Site Director must always prioritize operating a safe and secure camp, taking personal responsibility for the physical and emotional wellbeing of every program participant. In addition, the Site Director must be a proactive resource, problem solver, and sounding board for all parent concerns and staff issues. Cultivating and maintaining strong relationships with everyone involved with Headfirst Professional Sports Camps – from facility partners, to ballplayer families, to on-site and HQ staff – is a crucial component of this role, and the Site Director must remain mindful at all times of their role as an ambassador for Headfirst Professional Sports Camps.
