The PSIA-AASI National Team is selected on a “best in the nation” concept. Every four years, men and women are chosen to represent the association following a rigorous selection process and will serve a four-year term. For 2020, there is no set maximum number of team members.
“This process identifies our best talent for National Team Selection, but is also a way for divisions to identify and continually help develop that talent pool to keep them involved with their membership events and event development,” said PSIA-AASI Team Coach Jeb Boyd. “It greatly enhances our eight divisions by keeping our best talent involved in the everyday activities of our association to keep us as strong and relevant as possible for our membership.”
