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.
Our office is located in Olathe, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City.

As a 501 c3 not for profit organization all donations are completely tax deductible. Consult your tax professional for deduction applicability to your personal tax return!

Here are the thoughts of CMU (Colorado Mesa University) Athletic Administrator and longtime coach, Kris Mort, what she says about her experiences with USAAI (10+ tours) and her offer to you!
Kris Mort TESTIMONIAL:
"USA Athletes tours are an opportunity of a lifetime!!!"
"Yes, we can all travel... but the personal growth and broadened horizons for young adults through CULTURAL EXCHANGE OF THEIR SPORT is priceless!"
"Because of USAAI, I have been fortunate enough to have coached, traveled, seen, and EXPERIENCED Europe, Australia, South America, Africa and the Caribbean. I learned quickly that no place is the USA (good and bad)."
"If you are considering a tour or sending your athlete, and aren’t sure... feel free to contact me."
Kris Mort- Former Colorado Mesa University Softball Coach
"This was my second consecutive trip to Amsterdam with USAAI taking a men's team to compete," Booher said. "It was fun touring another country, getting to coach different players from around the country, and competing against volleyball players in the Netherlands. I will treasure the time spent overseas learning and enjoying the game of volleyball."
