Legendary Goalie and Coach Jim Beardmore on life and goalies - LGR Episode 80 | Lax Goalie Rat

Legendary Goalie and Coach Jim Beardmore on life and goalies – LGR Episode 80


There are few surnames more legendary in the lacrosse world than Beardmore.

In this episode I sit up down with Maryland alum and 1987 C Markland Kelly award winner Jim Beardmore to discuss his start in lacrosse, his development as a goalie, and his methodology when it comes to coaching young men on the lacrosse field.

Talking to Jim Beardmore one thing is for sure – he is passionate about the sport of lacrosse.

He is the son of the University of Maryland former head coach, the late great Buddy Beardmore. In this chat we discuss how Jim would be hanging out with the players in the locker room and at practice and the influence that had.

Jim Beardmore attended the University of Maryland himself after graduating from the Severn School in Severna Park, MD – a hotbed of lacrosse.

In addition to dominate college play Jim went on to play (and coach) in Major League Lacrosse.

Coaching runs in the Beardmore family and in addition to the MLL he’s coached at several top high school programs including Severna Park. 

Jim has hundreds of hours of footage of himself and his Dad (the assistant coach) coaching Severna Park to another state title run. It’s amazing footage and really gives you a taste of Jim Beardmore passionate, honest, and sometimes harsh coaching style.

In the footage is Severna Park Senior Mike Gvozden from Goaliesmith.

Here is Jim demonstrating the speed, agility, and out of the crease moves so prominent in goalie’s games back then:

Here is part of the documentary that Jim and I mention several times in this episode:
