Ramsey's UCSB teams won the WWLL Championship five times and were runners-up or successful in the league tournament third place game another six times. The Gauchos qualified for the WCLA National Tournament in nine of ten seasons and were national runners-up in 2013. Following his first stint at UCSB Ramsey moved east to coach at the NCAA Division I level at College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts. The Crusaders made the Patriot League Tournament three times out of five under Ramsey and garnered upsets of Boston College, Bucknell, Colgate, Duquesne, Hofstra, Lehigh and UConn during regular season play. From there he assisted at nationally ranked Hofstra University on Long Island for two seasons. The Pride were eventually ranked 15th in the country while he was assisting in Hempstead.
A move to become head coach at Pepperdine University in Malibu pulled Ramsey back to California. Under Ramsey, the Waves went from unranked to 19th ranked in the WDIA, now called the WCLA. When the UCSB position opened up after three years at Pepperdine Ramsey again became a Gaucho. His 2008, 2009 & 2012 UCSB teams won WWLL championships while the 2010 were runners-up and the 2011 team won the 3rd place. In 2013 the Gauchos marched all the way to the national championship game before losing to four-time champion Colorado State.
Ramsey switched gears in Fall 2016 and took on the role of Director for 805 Lacrosse Program. The program coordinates youth lacrosse, travel teams and tournaments in the Santa Barbara area.

In just his second year at the helm, Kirkpatrick led Chapman to the best season in its brief history and earned an at-large bid into the NCAA Division III Tournament. In just its fourth season as a varsity program, he has molded the program into one of the best in the SCIAC and on the West Coast.
Kirkpatrick served as an assistant coach on the women's lacrosse team during its transition from a club sport to varsity sport. He spent three years as an assistant before being named the head coach.
Kirkpatrick began his coaching career in 2010, less than a year removed from his college playing career. Kirkpatrick was a four-year member of Chapman's men's lacrosse team, serving as the team goalie from 2006-09 and was inducted into the program's Hall of Fame in 2012. He spent five years as an assistant with the men's club team.

Kirkpatrick led the Panthers back into the SCIAC Tournament championship in 2017 - the Panthers third trip in five years. The Panthers had had three consecutive winning seasons under Kirkpatrick's guidance (2015-17) and back-to-back double digit win seasons in 2016 and 2017.
The Panthers trip to the title match was its second in four years. In 2016, they had seven All-SCIAC selections and five IWLCA All-region selections. His first season as Head Coach saw five Panthers earn All-SCIAC honors.
Staff Samantha Keary
After an excellent career as a dual-sport student-athlete for the Bulldogs, Sam Keary returned to the University of Redlands in August of 2016 to begin her duties as the graduate assistant for the women’s lacrosse program. In addition to coaching the Bulldogs, Keary attends the School of Education in pursuit of her Master of Educational Administration.View Samantha Keary's Bio ⟩
As an assistant coach, Keary serves as the team's defensive coordinator, spearheads the recruiting efforts, and manages the team's academic success program and their social media accounts. Outside of coaching, Keary brings a team-first mentality to every aspect of the athletic department. In November 2017, Keary was recognized as the 2017 IWLCA Assistant Coach of the Year.
A Southern California native, Keary was born in Laguna Hills, grew up in Mission Viejo, and now resides in Redlands. She attended the U of R from 2012 to 2016 and graduated with a degree in Psychology while also obtaining her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.
As a student-athlete, Keary was a key contributor to the women’s soccer and lacrosse programs as a four-year starter.
For soccer, she became a three-time member of the All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) First Team while also earning All-West Region honors on two occasions. In 2015, Keary helped lead the Bulldogs to the program’s fifth SCIAC Championship and the first since 2008. In 2014, she was part of the team that earned the automatic bid to the NCAA Championships with an impressive run through the SCIAC Postseason Tournament.
In lacrosse, Keary’s success was similar, as Redlands captured a pair of conference titles during her tenure. In addition, the Bulldogs advanced to the third round of the 2014 NCAA Championships, resulting in the best postseason showing in program history. Individually, she collected back-to-back First-Team All-SCIAC awards and a pair of All-Region awards to finish out her career.
Not only was Keary an exemplary athlete but she was an impressive student as well. This four-time Redlands Scholar-Athlete also landed on the SCIAC All-Academic Team for soccer and lacrosse. A repeat Dean’s List member, she earned a spot on the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll as a senior. Due to her contributions on the field and successes in the classroom, it came as no surprise that Keary was named the Frank Serrao Senior Co-Scholar-Athlete of the Year at the University of Redlands upon conclusion of her illustrious career.
Prior to joining the Maroon and Gray staff, Keary worked as the Girls’ Director for Silverfin’s summer lacrosse camps. Her past job experiences provide great insight and application to the Bulldog women’s lacrosse team.

In addition, Kibler directs The Tenacity Project, a Portland-based company that focuses on development of high-school age lacrosse players. She is head coach of the Tenacity Elite 2019 and 2021 youth teams, which competes regionally and nationally.
Kibler believes the most important element in leading the program forward is building team camaraderie within the program. “A huge piece of being successful is team bonding,” she said. “It’s about having girls who want to be together and stay together through good times and hard times. Implementing an accountability factor is very important.”
According to Kibler, the kind of student-athletes who best fit within her program “are passionate about wanting to consistently work out and be part of a successful exercise routine. They need to build not only endurance but body awareness and be proactive and enjoy working hard within an exercise program.”
Linfield was the first Northwest Conference institution to add women’s lacrosse as a varsity sport in 2002 after five years as a club program. Women’s lacrosse became an official NWC sport in 2015 with five inaugural members. This spring, the conference adds two new programs, bringing the league’s lacrosse membership to seven.

Camp Questions & Answers
How experienced do you have to be to attend camp?
Players should already have at least 5 years of playing experience, have at least one year of varsity experience, be on their way to making varsity at their school, have elite travel team experience or have the recommendation of their club or high school coach. Each player should be able to go lefty or righty and handle at least 95% of passes thrown to them in drills and game situations.
Is this a recruiting camp?
College coaches will be on staff just like they are at all of our camps. However, we are not guaranteeing you will be recruited or get a scholarship.
If you're not guaranteeing recruitment to a college then what's this camp all about?
This camp is for the college bound player to get coached by college coaches in a situation where you will be treated like a college player. It will still be a teaching and learning situation, like all our camps, but in a more competitive setting.
Should I attend both the instruction camp and the SB60 Showcase at the same location during the summer?
Attend both camps when schedule allows to get the most out of your camp experience. A $150 discount is offered for campers who attend both camps as resident campers to encourage attendance at both camps. If you qualify for the SB60 Showcase then you will be in the advanced group in the Game Development Camp. We've extended this super deep discount for players who love lacrosse and can't get enough of it. By attending the first camp you'll get all our skill development and great coaching in groups with campers of similar experience level. You'll then be warmed up and ready to go for the super competitive SB60 Showcase that follows where the pace of play jumps up a notch and challenges all athletes.
