THE CAMP

The #1 Summer Sports Camp in Santa Barbara!

Welcome to Next Level, an athletic experience to remember. We have partnered with professional athletes, Santa Barbara's top college, high school, and club coaches, and various nonprofit organizations to provide a unique summer experience for Santa Barbara's youth athletes. At camp, campers have the ability to play baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, soccer, and volleyball while receiving unparalleled instruction. We are unlike any other camp out there!

 

For example, campers can play basketball during the morning session and then play baseball during the afternoon session. If a camper wants to play the same sport all day, every day, they are able to do that too. Each camper gets to decide what sport they want to play!

Our goal for each camper is that they will improve their skills, make new friends, and most importantly, HAVE FUN! Camp will be held at Page Youth Center's beautiful facilities.  Reserve your spot today!

 

ETHOS

While we love the game and everything sports has to offer, seeing the joy on a child's face when they get "it" is why we coach. Our camp is for the kids, just made by kids who grew bigger and still want to be a part of the games we played decades ago! Our mission is to give every child the opportunity to develop proper athletic fundamentals through safe, positive, and efficient coaching techniques while allowing them to try new sports or take their current game to the Next Level.
Children are the lifeblood of our community and we understand the role that sports play in their development. Sports develop teamwork, passions, perseverance, confidence, friendships and so much more. As coaches, we look at ourselves as an extension of the education that children receive from their parents, schools, and experiences and open our camp to every child that loves sports as much as we do.
 
In 2019, we have donated over $25,000 back to our local community in camp scholarships and donations to help fund local schools, after-school programs, and aid families in need. We want to take our community and our children's summers to the Next Level!
