TEAM AIST Softball

AIST traveled Europe in July of 2021 with 5 AIST select teams.  At times, it seemed as if we were the only tour bus in all of Italy due to the Covid19 pandemic.  We were able to navigate through the country providing our athletes and fans an experience that they will remember for the rest of their lives.  Now, in 2022 we are traveling with more than 600 passengers to several destinations around the world.

For those of you who are interested in joining an AIST select team in 2023, now is the time to book your roster spot!  We look forward to having you on tour soon!

AIST will surpass 22 years of international tours in 2023!

AIST Softball

Since 2002, AIST has been traveling the world with select players from across the country to competing in a variety of sports. The selection process is based on recommendations from coaches as well as statistical leaders from around the nation at all levels of college play. For our high school selected players can be from an AIST Tryout, college coaches recommendations, college showcase events or from our research of online player profiles.

As a player you will gain cultural experience, personal growth, as well as improving your skills and creating many new friendships along the way. We hope you join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Attention Coaches!

AIST is always in search of qualified coaches to lead our select teams. Coaches will be able to enjoy working with players from all different backgrounds.

Tour Responsibilities for our Coaches:

  • Game Management – Put together rosters for each game
  • Instruction – Provide instruction to help players improve
  • Run Practices – If needed, we will have 1-2 practices on tour which you will be able to work with your team
  • Chaperone – AIST staff will handle all of the details, however we may require a little assistance in looking out for our players on tour
  • Enjoy your tour – AIST staff will be providing you with all the support of the tour. You will have the freedom to explore and visit the destinations at your own speed.
  • Recruit – We do hope that our selected coaches will be able to help promote the team and find players to join the roster. AIST does most of the recruiting, but it certainly helps when we have coaches who can pull 4-5 players from their own team or conference.
  • Travel Free – AIST covers the tour package for our head coaches.  In some cases we are also able to provide you with spending cash for the tour to make it more enjoyable for you.
