Camp Director Paul Ramsey
Paul Ramsey, previously the Head Coach at UCSB, Pepperdine University, College Of The Holy Cross and Assistant Coach at Hofstra University is currently the Director for Santa Barbara Lacrosse Camp & 805 Lacrosse Project.View Paul Ramsey's Bio ⟩
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.

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.
