The Continental Indoor Lacrosse League (www.ci2l.com) has announced their league tournament schedule for the 2015 season. This marks the second season of these “Tournament Weekends” which allows teams to play more games without an intense travel schedule.
New CILL Commissioner A.J. Collier commented, “We are excited about the Tournament Weekend format, the fans will get to see some great box lacrosse and the CILL member teams will be able to stretch their budgets and get more league games in!”
Tournament weekends will kick off on August 8th and 9th in Grand Rapids Michigan where the Dragonfish will host the Lansing Hot Rods, Pittsburgh Octane, Milwaukee Marauders, Cleveland Demons, and the new Indianapolis Copperheads. Four additional tournaments will take place this season:
August 22nd and 23rd in Milwaukee, hosting the Chicago Outlaws, Grand Rapids Dragonfish, and Indianapolis Copperheads.

“This is going to be an exciting season for the CILL,” said Dan Shea, Director of Scheduling, “The grass roots campaign for this league is catching on as we have added 2 more teams for this season Grand Valley (out of Grand Rapids) and Indianapolis. With these tournament style weekends, we are hoping to bring out the casual lacrosse fan and the hardcore fans to enjoy a great weekend of fast paced high scoring lacrosse. It definitely is going to be a good time for the kids and families as we look to get all of our youth fans in each city out to enjoy this great game.”
