About Us

Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the US and the West Coast is experiencing a huge rise in participation across all age levels and demographics.

Santa Barbara Riptide was created by local coaches to help foster that growth by offering year-round opportunities for players to learn the fundamentals, compete at a high level, and understand how the game is supposed to played. 

We specialize in offering Leagues, Camps, Clinics, and Travel Teams for the Santa Barbara Community and surrounding areas. 

Our training emphasizes proper understanding of the fundamentals, developing Lacrosse IQ, and enjoying the game.  Our programs teach players to honor the game while fueling the competitive spirit from which it was created.  

Our mission is to help support and grow the game at all local schools so we encourage players from all schools in Santa Barbara and surrounding areas to participate in our programs.

Our programs are focused on building community and provide players the opportunity to play and form relationships with athletes and coaches outside of their school teams.  

The primary goal of the Riptide program is to develop respectful, resilient, self-confident student-athletes who will contribute to the success of their high school programs and serve as dependable leaders in their community.
