Mission & Vision
Our Mission and Vision
Next Level Basketball is committed to the development and progress of young student athletes in the Barrie and surrounding areas. Our goal is to teach the essential skills and instill the required work ethic that is needed for athletes to take their game to its “Next Level”. By providing a positive, fun, yet challenging environment, we are able to maximize the opportunities for our athletes to thrive and succeed.
Next Level Basketball prides itself on staying up-to-date on the latest trends and providing advanced instruction by knowledgeable, enthusiastic and experienced coaches. Our Directors are former CIS players and coaches who have had team and individual success at a National level.
We feel that our experience as high level players combined with learning from some of Canada’s top coaches has provided us with a unique view on how to help our athletes develop the skills and mind set needed to continually improve their performance.
Maine Red Claws (NBA D-League)/ Assistant Coach – Canadian Senior Men’s National Team
“In my twelve years as a CIS head coach, Scott Seeley was the player that was most dedicated to improving his abilities which resulted in a small town kid becoming one of the best university level players in Ontario. Now, as a coach, he is bringing that same dedication and drive to helping young players in his area reach their potential and beyond. He is an excellent teacher of the game and has firsthand experience in how to best maximize one’s abilities on the basketball court.”
San Antonio Stars (WNBA)/ Syracuse University (NCAA)
“If you want your child to learn and understand how to play the game of basketball, develop the necessary skills needed to play the game and the mentality and hard work required to be successful, Next Level Basketball is the perfect choice. Your child will receive hands on instructions, and view demonstrations by highly experienced coaches who explain the purpose of each drill. Plus, they encourage their players to push themselves and make mistakes, because when you play outside your comfort zone, that’s where success lies!”
London Lightning (NBL Canada)/ Former Player Canadian Men’s National Team
“Having worked the Next Level Summer Camps for the past 5 years, I have experienced firsthand the passion, dedication and tremendous knowledge Scott and his team put into making these camps such a success. As a player and a coach I have been involved in basketball camps across the North America for over 20 years. Next Level has put together the perfect balance of great basketball coaching knowledge and a fun energizing environment where players can learn and develop.”
Michigan State (NCAA)/ Canadian Senior Women’s National Team
“I had the privilege of working with Next Level Basketball this summer and I can truly say that they embody their name to the fullest! I was so inspired by the energy and enthusiasm the coaches and staff gave to the athletes. It was amazing to see how much fun they were all having learning, working hard and playing the game of basketball! This is a must attend program that I will recommend too all young kids looking to elevate their game & have fun while doing it.”
Stanford University (NCAA)/ Canadian Junior Women’s National Team
“The Next Level basketball program is one of the best basketball specific camps geared towards improvement and becoming not only a better basketball player but a better athlete and teammate. The repertoire of skills that the coaching staff brings to the court challenges the players, giving them a chance to be ‘comfortable being uncomfortable’, and encouraging mistakes and learning. Scott Seeley coached me in grades 11-12, helping me to improve my confidence on the court while working with me individually based on my role on each team, ex. leadership responsibilities. He introduced skills and concepts that helped me throughout my high school and JUEL league seasons for two years, resulting in National Team selections for both of those years. I not only became a better basketball player but a better teammate and athlete. Coach Seeley and the entire coaching staff are very versed in the game of basketball, and ultimately make Next Level basketball camps a fun and competitive environment to be in!”
