Uplifting Youth Through Education | Sports | Mentoring

The Heads Up! Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching and enhancing the lives of youth through education, sports and mentoring. Since our inception in 2003, Heads Up! has had the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of thousands of youth through our summer sports and life-skills camps, mentoring programs, outreach initiatives, and other community involvement. With an extensive network of dedicated volunteers, all whom share a passion for uplifting youth, we provide our youth with the 'village' that every young person must have during those critical development years in order to reach their full potential in life. At various times throughout the year, The Heads Up! Foundation continues to plan and implement programs designed to enhance the social, academic and cultural development of young people and to utilize youth-centered instructional strategies in sports and educational activities in an effort to help young people gain an appreciation for sports competition, enhance their academic efforts, improve their overall physical fitness and further develop a healthy lifestyle.


COVID-19 has changed everything for everyone.


While The Heads Up! Foundation is committed to protecting our student-athletes and their families during this uncertain time by cancelling all events, we are also continuing the work that needs to be done to help the same people we are protecting. Student-athletes everywhere are confused about what comes next in their college recruiting process. HeadsUp! is dedicated to providing a VIRTUAL platform to educate and assist those who are committed to trusting this new process - this new way of learning and living. Now you can sign-up for VIRTUAL COURSES that are vital to all Student-athletes at all levels. We are also offering an in-depth Recruiting Course for Parents as well. Click here to learn more and sign-up today! 

REMEMBER: Wash your hands & STAY HOME!

HeadsUP! is proud to partner with and have the support of the Holden Strong Awareness Campaign - a local non-profit organization dedicated to addressing heart health matters for student-athletes. Visit their site to learn more! #HoldenStrong
