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 Leader 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 Leader’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 Leader 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 Leader 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 Leader 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.

What if the best day ever made you better every day? At The Headfirst Companies, we 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 everyone comes to us with unique gifts and unlimited potential. We’re here to unlock that potential with innovative and engaging programs designed to strengthen six core developmental skills. We believe these Super Six™ skills – optimism, resiliency, hope & goal-setting, emotional mastery, self-efficacy, and grit & determination – are the key social and emotional building blocks to authentic happiness and lasting success, and the challenge of their practice is our journey.
For over 20 years, we’ve been creating programs that inspire children and young adults to courageously engage with the world, celebrate the challenges that come with trying hard things, and meet every opportunity and every setback with persistence, patience, and a positive attitude. We do this work because we believe in the simple yet profound power of play to spark inspiration and unlock potential, and we’ve built our reputation on a foundation of core values and proven results across three distinct organizations. Headfirst Summer Camps are award-winning STEM, STEAM, Sport, and Travel camps designed to create immersive, hands-on learning environments which utilize the power of play to entertain, challenge, and inspire. Headfirst Honor Roll Camps are two-day baseball and softball showcase events connecting coaches from the nation’s most academically competitive colleges with high school student-athletes who have what it takes to excel in the classroom and on the field. Headfirst Professional Sports Camps are youth baseball programs operated in conjunction with the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Washington Nationals, and – new for 2018 – Pittsburgh Pirates which combine behind-the-scenes stadium access and player meet-and-greets with curriculum-based baseball instruction to spark passion, build skills, and create Major League-worthy experiences. Together, The Headfirst Companies programs hosted more than 14,000 campers in 2017.
