Next Level Sports

Nl Sfinal Stacked Trans 01

At Next Level Sports (NLS), we are looking to break down the barriers between youth and high-quality sports training. We are looking to fill the gap between recreational sports and competitive sports to allow youth from all backgrounds and skills to continue to learn and grow in sport.

Through community partnerships, we hope to build strong ties to the sports community in London, and ensure that all athletes, regardless of skill and ability, have access to the programming they deserve.

Through a partnership with Junction Climbing Centre, we are so excited to bring a bouldering program to London Youth! BGC London will be providing transportation from the Club to J2 (1828 Blue Heron Dr.).

Bouldering is a challenging, fun, exciting way to learn rock climbing.

Volunteer Opportunities

We have lots of volunteer opportunities for high school and post-secondary students. We have a Volunteer Coordinator who supports all of our volunteers during the application process which includes a record check (for 18 and older), reference checks, training and on-going support to align you with the programs that best support your personal goals.


OR Email Erin Carter at [email protected] for more information about volunteer opportunities with NLS.

Recess Sport Program

Through funding provided by the Canada Parks and Recreation Association and the Government of Canada, Next Level Sports has been able to launch our Recess Sports Program. The goal of this program is to support lunchtime sports opportunities in schools and break down barriers between school-age children and quality sports.

We are actively looking to engage senior students in leadership workshops and opportunities with the goal of putting together a final Camp Day for the whole school.
