History of AIST

AIST SELECT TEAMS (INDIVIDUAL TOURS)

Incorporated in 2001, American International Sports Tours (AIST) was born out of the vision of Chad Wilkinson and Gary Haarmann. Recognizing the demand for an honest, loyal, and reliable international sports tour provider, they aimed to open up the world of sports to others. In the early days of AIST, communication relied on phone calls and traditional mail invitations to handpicked players.

Today, we have harnessed the power of social media, online statistics, and other recruiting resources to locate the finest athletes for our select teams. We conduct nationwide tryouts, some of which are graced by professional athletes, and offer online tryouts for those unable to attend in person.

Our relentless search spans the entire country to find exceptional athletes who will proudly represent the USA in international competitions.

We actively encourage friends and family to partake in these remarkable experiences alongside the athletes. Each year, we take immense pride in assembling high-quality teams, ensuring an unforgettable experience for all who seize this extraordinary opportunity.

TEAM AND GROUP TRAVEL

Beyond our individual tours, AIST also specializes in tailored group or team travel opportunities. Embarking on an international journey with your team fosters unity and creates lifelong memories. Teams are presented with the chance to compete against formidable opponents, experiencing their sport on a global scale. Often, the host teams enjoy socializing post-game, allowing your team to immerse themselves in the local culture and connect with residents.

Opting for a sports tour not only grants your team more time on the field or court but also offers the chance to delve into other cultures while exploring some of the world's most breathtaking destinations. The unique fusion of sports and travel creates an incredible experience that transcends that of a typical tourist.

Sports provide the opportunity to engage and connect with like-minded individuals from diverse cultures—a fantastic way to witness your team's growth and foster deep bonds. We spare no effort in ensuring a professional experience, delivering top-tier service, and upholding the highest standards of quality throughout our tours.

Established in the year of 2001, AIST has built a reliable network of partnerships around the world to bring you the best value and services for international sports travel.
AIST has undergone a remarkable journey of growth and expertise development over the past two decades. We have dedicated ourselves to perfecting the art of providing exceptional international sport tour experiences. Through our extensive knowledge and extensive network of contacts worldwide, we possess the ability to support teams at all levels of play, ranging from professional clubs and NCAA Div I to youth divisions.

Our highly sought-after individual select team program has garnered significant popularity among athletes who are unable to travel with their respective teams or schools. At AIST, we extend a warm invitation to talented players from across the nation to join our select teams, proudly representing the USA in prestigious international tournaments and exhilarating exhibition games.

Amazing Tour

Keilani Walker
Student Athlete

It's all around an amazing tour! We got to travel to a lot of places, experience an incredible culture and then finish with an Italy Lax Cup Championship! The people on tour and the culture were phenomenal. I would highly recommend these opportunities to any athlete considering the opportunity. I'm very grateful for the invitation I received to represent the USA with AIST!

Immersed in Italian Culture

Kia McNeill
Head Coach - Brown University Women's Soccer

“Our international trip with AIST to Italy was a trip of a lifetime, and will be a lasting memory for all of us for years to come. We were able to truly immerse ourselves in Italian culture by touring a wide range of cities and getting a first-hand experience of the history, beauty, and culinary excellence Italy has to offer. In addition to that, we were also able to play two professional teams, one of which plays in Serie A, the top professional league in Italy. I know this was a bonding experience that none of us will forget or take for granted. As a coach, that is the most rewarding part for me.”

Our trip was awesome - a 10! Our local guides and bus driver were just fabulous! We scheduled a lot of sightseeing, practice, and games on a 10-day tour, it all happened and all went well. Everything was great from the organization, food, transportation, and accommodation. It was truly a top-notch experience!

Safe and comfortable the entire trip!

Mitchell McPartland

Just wanted to reach out and thank you for all of your help setting up our tour in Brazil. Your staff did a wonderful job hosting us and making our group feel safe and comfortable the entire trip. We would highly recommend Brazil to anyone asking for a destination to go to. Thanks again, looking forward to working with you again in the future!

Excellent Experience

Aram Chahbazian
Softball Parent

We had an excellent experience. It was very organized and well-planned with a great balance of planned/guided touring, free time and sports time. I was struck by the way AIST was able to seamlessly balance three different sports all traveling on the same bus, but with different play schedules and locations. Well done!
