Four years ago, four long-time lacrosse players, coaches and executives formed U.S. Indoor Lacrosse, which managed the U.S. Men's National Indoor Lacrosse Team to a 3rd place finish in the 2007 World Indoor Lacrosse Championships.
In 2011, the U.S. will make another run at a world championship, and the USIL, which includes IMG Academy lacrosse program Director, Kevin Finneran, will again lead the way.
Finneran will serve as the Director of Player Personnel and Assistant G.M.
"The growth of indoor lacrosse in the United States has been terrific, and we hope to make our supporters proud next summer at the World Championships in Prague," Finneran said. "We will assemble the 23 best players on the field and in the locker room to represent their country."
Started in 2003 and held every four years, the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships have been dominated by the Canadians, who have never lost in 12 matches.
