Meet Camp Coaches

Suzy Barcomb
Camp Director

Suzy Barcomb

Suzy Barcomb was named head women's basketball coach at Seattle University on April 18, 2016. Barcomb most recently completed her sixth season at the helm of the Cal State East Bay women’s basketball program where she led the Pioneers to the university’s first-ever conference championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in any sport. 

Read Full Bio

She surpassed career win No. 300 in February 2015 and led her team to the institution’s first-ever postseason win, advancing to the conference championships that season.

Prior to Cal State East Bay, Barcomb was at the helm of the University of Puget Sound for 12 seasons where she became the all-time winningest coach in program history.

“When this coaching vacancy presented itself, I knew it would be a tremendous opportunity for me personally and professionally,” said Barcomb. “I’ve called the Pacific Northwest my home for the better part of 25 years and I am incredibly thankful that Bill Hogan has the confidence in me and my abilities to direct the women’s basketball program.”

Barcomb started her coaching career as an assistant at Puget Sound (1995-98) and has a wealth of experience, working in every facet of athletics administration – event management, sports information, academic advising, and recruitment – in addition to coaching. She is a member of the USA Today/ESPN Board of Coaches National Committee and the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA).

Beginning her collegiate playing career as a middle hitter on the volleyball team and a forward on the basketball team at Central Missouri State, Barcomb transferred to Washington where she walked on to the Huskies’ women’s basketball team, playing one season. Barcomb graduated from the University of Washington in 1986.

“I want to thank Fr. Sundborg, Bill Hogan, and Tim Leary for the opportunity to join the Seattle University athletics department,” Barcomb said. “Not often in the coaching profession do you get to return to a place you call home and, for me, that is the Pacific Northwest. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting every single staff member while interviewing and knew this was a department that I wished to become a part of. Everyone was so welcoming and it was obviously a perfect fit while walking around campus; I felt at home.”

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

Group Discounts

If five or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $40 discount. Teams can register online or via mail/fax.

  • To register your team online: Please have a team contact reach out directly to the USSC office at 1-800-645-3226 to receive a discount code to identify your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the coupon code during check-out.
  • To register your team via mail/fax: Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax. If all members of your group pay with a Visa or MasterCard, feel free to fax your applications to 415-479-6061 to expedite processing.

Dynamite camp!

August 9, 2016: The women's team players staffing the camp set an incredible, positive example for my daughter and the "big girl" aspect of the experience - from lunch in the cafeteria to warm ups - made her feel confident. Dynamite camp!

My third year at Seattle University

August 11, 2016: This is my third year at this camp, and I love it so much. It is always on my birthday, and it is so much fun to share it with my basketball friends, and coaches. My game has improved a lot because of this camp. I will go here for as long as they want me!

My daughter was in awe working with Div 1 athletes.

All the coaches were fantastic; I think my daughter was in awe that they were Div 1 athletes. She was also touched by the head coach's inspirational speech, as she puts it. This was her only single sex camp this year and she says that makes it much more organized and pleasant. She also enjoyed being awarded a Redhawk award.

A great combination of learning and fun!

August 8, 2016: I think you've developed a great combination of learning and fun! My daughter loved the learning and competition. I loved the quality and structure of the camp.

My daughter LOVED the dining experience.

August 8, 2016: My daughter enjoyed working with the older girls, she felt she played better with the older girls and felt as though they were more at her level. I also feel like the extension of the camp hours was a huge benefit to the campers. My daughter LOVED the dining experience and the vegetarian options were a huge improvement over last year. Nice job! One improvement is to have your lines be the same as the teams, because we work in lines more than we work as teams, so having these the same would help to strengthen the teams.

My daughter now wants to tryout for her school team!

August 9, 2016: My daughter didnt know anything about basketball before attending camp at Seattle U and now she wants to play basketball for her school! She was very tired when she came home, the coaches kept her going and she's a hard one to wear down! She had a great time with her peers and really wants to come back next summer.

All the girls looked like that had a great time!

Thanks so much for making this summer experience the best of the season!

My daughter was so excited each morning to get back to camp. She enjoyed the chance to interact with the Seattle U team and can't stop talking about what it would take to go to school and play basketball for the Hawks.
I already see her practicing more than she had before camp. Her favorite part was getting the chance to play basketball all day. I would say learning life skills and the chance to practice working in teams. Thanks so much for making this summer experience the best of the season!

Thank you to all!! You're the BEST!!

My daughter had a wonderful experience!! She is already talking about next year. Joy, Rachel, and Monica made it the best first camp experience. I was nervous to send her to an all-day camp but she came home that night and told me about her first day and all of her worries were gone! Thank you to all!! You're the BEST!!

Coach B and the SU women basketball players were awesome.

Coach B and the SU women basketball players were awesome. My eleven-year-old daughter had a blast even though she did not know anyone at camp. That says a lot about the fun times and individual attention that the staff and leadership brought to camp! Thanks.
