The Redmond Lacrosse Club recently hired Rob Eidson as its new program director.
Formerly of the Bellevue Boys Lacrosse Club, Eidson will be in charge of defining Redmond’s coaching program and philosophy, recruiting and managing coaching staff at youth levels, as well as assuming the role of head coach of the varsity team.
Eidson is originally from the Philadelphia, Penn., area and played varsity lacrosse at West Chester East Senior High. In college, he played for the University of Mary Washington (Virginia) in the National College Lacrosse League and was team captain. He led the squad in scoring and was named to the league national all-star team. Before moving to Washington, he coached varsity lacrosse in northern Virginia’s 4A high school league.
His Bellevue junior varsity teams won two championships and notched a 41-4 overall record during his three-year coaching tenure.
“I am very excited about the opportunity to join this lacrosse club and community,” he said in a press release. “As a leader, I believe in stressing four key principles. Those principles are dedication, teamwork, management of details, and taking pride in being a role model. I typically refer to this role model concept as being the ‘Gold Standard.’ I would like to leverage these four principles moving forward in everything we do, both on and off the field, as an organization.”
