Why Travel?

  • It gets you out of your comfort zone and teaches you about yourself (you’ll be surprised)
  • Travel teaches you economy, politics, history, geography, and sociology in an intense, hands-on way no class will.
  • It puts life in perspective
  • You’ll make friends from across the globe (networking 101)
  • It looks great on your resume (employers aren’t looking for mediocre, they’re looking for leaders)
  • You’ll discover the world’s incredible cultural diversity
  • You’ll experience places you never imagined existed
  • You might learn a new language
  • You’ll have incredible adventures (and stories to tell)
  • Experience completely new cuisines
  • Travel happiness is infectious (you’ll get to TELL YOUR STORY!)

Seeing the world provides an education that’s absolutely impossible to get in school. Fortunately, the school of travel is always taking applications, no entrance exam required. If you’re open and willing, travel will make you an incredibly more well-rounded human being. And that’s really the goal, isn’t it?

Who Are We?

USA Athletes International, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to giving amateur athletes and coaches the opportunity to participate in international Olympic-style sporting events throughout the world, while also allowing them to broaden their educational and cultural knowledge of the world through the experience.

With 28 years experience with international sports tournament travel, USAAI has grown to be one of the oldest and most respected sports travel organizations in the country. What started with one baseball team has grown to 10 different sports, with tens of thousands of student-athletes visiting more than 25 different countries.

USAAI has been participating in international competition since 1992. Originally called the Midwest All-Stars, the organization provided overseas playing opportunities to baseball players. The success of that program eventually prompted requests from abroad for other sporting teams to participate. In 1998 the organization incorporated and received its 501(c)(3) nonprofit status (available upon request), changing its name to USA Athletes International. We now support a total of 15 different sports that compete in 25 different countries throughout the world.
