Brendan Sullivan

Founder & President

My life continues to be impacted in countless positive ways by the incredible teachers and coaches I had growing up here in the Washington area. I started Headfirst to give young people the same opportunities that I was fortunate enough to have growing up; to learn how to play with joy, be a great teammate and friend, set and achieve personal goals, overcome obstacles, and to develop their leadership skills – no matter the activities through which they find their current passions. We work year-round to create an environment built on thoughtfulness, teamwork, love and inspiration which enables all of our campers, musicians and student-athletes to prosper and enjoy their time in our programs.

Dream job as a Kid

Most of my childhood dreams involved a professional sports uniform – and I feel fortunate to have had the experience of playing professional baseball. Now I live my dream job and I never could have imagined loving my work as much as I enjoy what I do every day with our inspiring Headfirst team.
