Next Level U Sports x Midwestern Ontario Bearcats College Combine Recap

  • 19 July 2022

It was a weekend filled with growth, exposure, and competition. Next Level U Sports in partnership with the Midwestern Ontario Bearcats hosted their first annual college combine in Waterloo this past weekend. With over forty-five participants showcasing their skills and abilities to the over twenty-five college coaches in attendance and viewing online, the atmosphere was outstanding, and the play was even better.

On Friday night, our Next Level U Sports team hosted a recruiting information seminar where we discussed the ins and outs of the recruitment process here in Canada and in the United States. It was a great event for our team and the student athletes hosted at the new Yard 41 Facility, home of the Midwestern Ontario Bearcats. This event set us up for an eventful Saturday filled with high flying action. Hosted on a beautiful day in Kitchener, all student athletes and staff put in a fantastic effort in all of the drills and game simulations.
