The Red Wolves are excited to announce Kelly Bilz as our new Head Coach! The Baltimore, MD native is the Tennessee Wesleyan University (website) head coach and with her passion, experience and expertise our girls will be educated and challenged to new levels.
Bilz graduated from Tennessee Wesleyan University in 2017 with a degree in Exercise Science and was a three-year member of the women’s lacrosse team. During her Lady Bulldogs career, Bilz was named to the Appalachian Athletic Conference’s (AAC) All-Conference Second Team in 2015 and All-Conference First Team as a goalie in 2017. Bilz was part of two conference championship winning teams in 2015 and 2017 along with a runner-up finish in the 2016 AAC Tournament.
Our 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!

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.
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.
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-15 and HS players should also fill out a recruiting profile that will be sent to you after you register.
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.
If you are a college coach you can learn more about our amazing student athletes via our FieldLevel account.
