Red Wolves – Boys Select Travel Teams

Our regional travel teams are for players that are serious about lacrosse and want to take their game to the next level but not at the expense of family and friends.

You will learn and develop new skills, strategies and techniques that are used by the top programs in the country.  Through our teachings every player learns the flow of the game where they learn to read and react as opposed to running set plays.  Simply put we teach and develop lacrosse IQ.

If you are interested in a great program with solid results (see our commit page) check us out!  We believe that after a long hard spring the summer is meant to showcase your talents, work out and have more time with family and friends.  Less is more with our travel teams!

We don’t classify our teams as “elite” and feel it is not the right focus when helping young men become outstanding members of society and great teammates.  Instead we focus on the big picture which includes family time, having fun, learning and playing great lacrosse and for that want to play at the next level we provide the opportunities and the results to back it up!

At Origins Lacrosse Club, we have in mind the best interests of our athletes while maintaining a commitment to fielding strong teams. We work the mind and the body with a dynamic style that is both realistic and challenging, giving close attention to the proper techniques and mechanics that are essential for success. Our programs of individual skill instruction, game situation drills, and scrimmaging will benefit everyone, from new players to those who want to play at the highest level.

We believe lacrosse is a lifestyle but also know at the end of the day it must be fun, and Origins LC Lacrosse will offer the tools young lacrosse players need to take their game to the next level.   Where we go one, we go all!

Origins LC Select Curriculum
The Origins LC Select Lacrosse Curriculum is the organizational structure guiding our teams. The Curriculum maps out all practice plans, pre-game routines, and in-game strategies to ensure that each team receives the same excellent level of preparation.  Origins LC Lacrosse emphasizes aggressive and unselfish play on offense, a cohesive defense based on communication and slides, and a team-first attitude with clearly defined roles.

We develop and coach our players in a proven system with results to back it up.  Origins LC Select is designed to allow players to get maximum development and enjoyment without requiring the resources and travel commitments that other travel teams require.

Culture
Origins LC Select is designed to allow players to get maximum development and enjoyment without requiring the resources and travel commitments that other travel teams require.  Our Teams cater to the entire family, not just the individual player. At every tournament we have a section where players, parents, siblings, and friends mingle between games in a family-friendly environment. This social component allows players and families to build lasting friendships.

Recruiting
Origins Lacrosse Club has always set itself apart by focusing on development and great coaching but we also know there is a desire by some of our player to play at the collegiate level.  If you want to play in college let us know and we will guide you through the process. All U-14 and HS players should also fill out a recruiting profile that will be sent to you after you register.

Playing time
Our Teams play to win, but not at the expense of the development of each team member.  Our objective is to put every player in a position to be successful and help the team to win. Every player will be given an opportunity to play.  In addition to giving every team member opportunities for success, we will also be competing to win. This philosophy means that in special situations, such as Man-up and under two minutes left in the game, our coaches will insert the players that they feel give our team the best chance to win.  Players may be asked to fill certain roles. In some cases, this will be a leadership position. In others, it will be more of a specialty role, such as wing play or defensive midfield. We expect our players to enthusiastically accept the roles our coaches communicate for them to fill.

Scholarships

Scholarships in lacrosse generally cover just a portion of the costs associated with going to college. The chart below shows the maximum number of scholarships permitted in NCAA Division I and II lacrosse as compared to the average roster size per team. Not all schools award the maximum number of scholarships allowed and no scholarships are awarded in NCAA Division III based on athletic ability.
