Each tournament is a two-day (Sat/Sun) event of 40min matches (2 x 20min halves) structured in an international format and held at various locations. Its goal is to prepare all participants for success at the National Indoor Tournament Qualifiers (NITQ) and/or the National Indoor Tournament (NIT), as well as, provide a JPIL experience to teams who are not able to commit to multiple weekends of league competition.
