The American Indoor Lacrosse Association (AILA) announced it will hold a regional qualifying event hosted by the Minnesota Swarm for the inaugural IMG Indoor Nationals on September 28-29th at the Hastings Civic Arena in Hastings, MN. The IMG Indoor Nationals is an invitation and qualification only event series for U15, U17 and U19 US indoor lacrosse teams.

"We're excited to see the Twin Cities area get the opportunity to host a regional qualifying event for the inaugural IMG Indoor Nationals," Swarm Co-Owner and President Andy Arlotta said. "This tournament will be a great opportunity to showcase Minnesota's indoor lacrosse talent as well as help raise awareness for the benefits of playing indoor lacrosse."

The top teams in each of the regional qualifying events will meet in Philadelphia, PA, on Jan. 10 -- 12 at the Wells Fargo Center to vie for the championship.  The IMG Indoor Nationals will also take place in conjunction with the Philadelphia Wings opening game of the 2014 National Lacrosse League professional indoor lacrosse season and also the 2014 U.S. Lacrosse National Convention.

“We are excited to give players the opportunity and the platform to develop and showcase their indoor lacrosse talent,” said Johnny Mouradian, General Manager of the Philadelphia Wings and the founder of the American Indoor Lacrosse Association.  “Competition definitely breeds success.  Our long-term goal is to generate a greater level of youth involvement playing indoor lacrosse providing field lacrosse players the opportunity to compete and develop a special skill set that will enhance their field game and lacrosse IQ.”
