Baseball / Fall Tryout Dates Announced

Fall Tryout Dates Announced

Date:  Source: Headfirst Baseball Academy

Headfirst Baseball, a pioneer in the Northern CA travel ball movement, began tournament play in 2001.  Headfirst has evolved into the industry leader in player development. The proven HF system is structured with a "Style of play" that is respected at all levels in the baseball world.

Brothers Michael and Mario Iglesias, both with very enriched baseball backgrounds, have worked with thousands of players over the years and they both lead the HF organization. The Iglesias brothers played at all levels of the game and worked in many areas, including playing at Stanford, playing professionally (15 years combined with Dodgers, White Sox, Brewers, Cubs, Orioles, Braves and in Asia),coaching in high school, coaching at Stanford, working as a professional baseball agent, scouting professionally, and more! 

Headfirst grooms players from a young age to prepare for each step of the baseball journey and has sent over 350 players to college/pro baseball from the HF Academy.  Each manager is trained in the Headfirst curriculum for his division and each age level follows an organizational program relative to that age group.


* Ages are for the team players are trying out for, keeping in mind that league ages change on August 1.  This means a player who is currently 11U will attend the 12U tryout.

STEP 1 - ATTEND A WEEKLY TRYOUT OR ATTEND A JUNE/JULY TRYOUT - Tryouts are held WEEKLY (by appointment) year round and formally in June and July.  Players are evaluated by 2-4 staff members at each formal tryout.

STEP 2 - RECEIVE AN INVITATION WITHIN A WEEK - Players are then invited to join the Headfirst organization

STEP 3 - UNIFORM/AUGUST PAYMENT - This step is to assure both sides of the commitment to play HF and includes a cap, shorts, top and more.

STEP 4 - "SPRING TRAINING" - The month of August is used for training and in depth evaluations before tourney play.  Players will learn the Headfirst "approach" and "style of play" that separates the organization from all others. Players are evaluated each week in Spring Training workouts and teams begin to be formed at each age level by the end of the month.  At this point players will be designated to their new team's roster or in a "transitional" role on a team. 

STEP 5 - TOURNAMENT PLAY - The teams start tournament play in September, practicing once inside the HF Academy and once outdoors per week and playing two tourneys per month. 


The tryout fee is $20 per tryout. (Players only have to attend one tryout but may attend multiple tryouts)
