AIST originally started as a select team organization in which we recruit athletes from around the world to represent the USA in international tournaments and exhibition games. Over the years, we have developed key relationships with clubs, National teams, hotels, transportation and other tour necessities to provide these experiences not only for individuals but also for groups at a competitive price with excellent quality and value.
