Pathway to College

Through the baseball network Coach Dixon has accrued over his collegiate and professional career, he is opening doors for the student-athlete.  From fall visits to colleges and on the field introductions to head coaches, Next Level looks forward to a bright future for the native New Mexican player.

Next Level has put together a coaching staff second to none. Jamarkus James (Next Level’s hitting coordinator) former center fielder with the New York Yankee’s organization is assisting each and every player in our high school program with assembling a player profile, using his past collegiate experience. While prioritizing academics, this begins our process in helping find a school for the student athlete. Whether a high caliber Division 1, Division 2, Division 3 or NAIA that stresses academics before sports we will find the right program for our players.

Coach James and Coach Dixon both chose the junior college route. This option is great for individuals that are growing academically and gives the athlete an opportunity to play on the field immediately as a freshman. No matter what collegiate path our players choose, we have lived the experience and will provide them with guidance.

About Us

Next Level offers a complete baseball program for players to follow to take them from Little League and beyond with dedication and a great work ethic. Our coaching staff has over 27 years of Professional Baseball experience to back that up.  Now that we’ve completed our 3rd year, we have taken teams to compete at an Elite National level and seen college recruitment. Through a Professional off-season workout program used by the Cubs, White Sox & Rangers, to our individual positional drill work and injury prevention program, we have seen immediate success. Inquire above about our combines and testing to see if you have what it takes to take your game to the Next Level.
