SAIST has added Rugby and Rugby 7’s to our program to provide the top athletes in the USA an opportunity to come together and participate in international competition. We will be recruiting across the nation for athletes who have excelled in Rugby at the College and Club levels for the opportunity to compete in a tour abroad. AIST has been invited by New Zealand, Argentina, Italy and the United World Games in Austria to bring a select group of athletes abroad to compete against some of the top teams from around the world.
2015 will mark the first time in AIST history that a select team of Rugby players will come together to represent the USA in international competition. This once in a lifetime opportunity will be a first class tour giving you the opportunity to compete, explore and gain an educational experience of a lifetime.
AIST has been operating professionally organized select teams since 2002 for several different sports. We are very excited to offer Rugby as a new opportunity for all levels of play. If you have been selected to join AIST for a select team traveling abroad, we hope that you will consider the opportunity to showcase your talents and join us on tour.
We have several references that you are welcome to contact if you have any questions about AIST and the opportunity we provide. Please let us know if you have any interest or concerns about the invitation you have received. We hope that you will consider joining us for our inaugural season in the summer of 2015.
Our program is designed to give athletes the opportunity to experience your sport on an international level. Some tours include tournament play against national teams and other tours are exhibition tours vs. club teams. The experience to explore the world combined with sports gives you the unique opportunity to be more than a tourist. You’ll enjoy meeting new friends from around the world and teammates from all over the USA. We hope you will learn something to help you improve as a player and gain knowledge of the world around you. Here are a few other reasons to travel with AIST:
