O’Dea Lacrosse: “There is no substitute for hard work.”

The O’Dea High School Lacrosse Program is quickly becoming one of the premier programs in Washington State. In 2014 head coach Drew Snider began the lacrosse program. As a player, coach Snider has been extremely successful on a collegiate, professional, and international level. As a coach, Snider won a D2 championship with the Nathan Hale Raiders in 2013 and then started the O’Dea program in 2014. After the inaugural season the Irish were moved from D2 to D1 due to their progress in year 1. At the end of the 2016 season the team competed in the D1 state Quarterfinals. The success of the program is in large part due a commitment to a high standard of excellence by both players and coaches. The Irish finished the 2018 season in exceptional fashion, winning the State Championship earning the first State Title in program history. Our goal is to compete for a championship each season. Coach Snider has put together a solid coaching staff, including Eli Gobrecht, John O’Neill, Kris Snider, and Craig Snyder who have numerous years of experience in the game. Go Irish!

The Lacrosse schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather.
