About AVSR Global

AVSR Global is on the scouting trail, finding recruits and reporting them to subscribers.  If you’re a newcomer, here’s what you’ll want to know.

What will I get by subscribing?

You’ll get accurate reports on available, high-quality international recruits who are bound for American collegiate teams.

How detailed are the reports?

Extremely. They combine critical, in-person scouting with comprehensive reporting. Subscribers get a remarkably clear view of each recruit as a future collegiate student-athlete.

Whom does AVSR Global serve? Coaches or athletes?

Coaches only.  It’s a news service for coaches — not an agency for athletes.  Bill Feldman, the scout and publisher, is a journalist working for coaches. He doesn’t promote or represent athletes.

Who pays for AVSR Global?

Subscribing colleges pay for the service. American coaches pay to subscribe, and that’s who is served.

Who finds and evaluates the recruits?

Bill Feldman does the scouting. He searches for elite recruits, and he reports only a select few of the players he sees. Throughout his career Bill has earned the trust of coaches for his precision and depth as a talent scout.

Does AVSR Global “place” athletes?

No. There’s no steering or meddling. AVSR Global simply reports the news to subscribers, and each subscriber is free to recruit the athletes directly.

At what levels can the recruits make an impact?

Mid-Division I or higher. Some can thrive for top-25 Division I teams. Most are better suited for mid-level teams. AVSR Global recruits have competed in 37 conferences in DI, DII, DIII, the NAIA and the NJCAA.

Do two-year colleges subscribe?

They do ... and they win.  Every year, some of the nation’s top junior college teams find key recruits by subscribing.  Most AVSR Global recruits go directly to four-year schools, but some each year choose junior colleges.

Can I see video of the recruits?

If you prefer to evaluate players by video, AVSR Global isn’t for you. It’s a scouting service, not a video service. However, video clips are available publicly as supplements to most reports.

Is AVSR Global a full-time, year-round service?

Absolutely. Reports are published and updated continually. Bill Feldman is a full-time volleyball scout, working exclusively for American coaches.

What countries does AVSR Global cover?

There are no boundaries. AVSR Global has reported athletes from Estonia to New Zealand, from Mexico to Luxembourg. The primary focus is central and eastern Europe.

What is the “AVSR” in AVSR Global?

American Volleyball Scouting Report, founded in 1985, served as the USA’s premier domestic volleyball recruiting service for two decades.

Are American players still reported by AVSR Global?

No. After more than 20 years as the top domestic volleyball scouting service, AVSR became AVSR Global, reporting only on recruits beyond the USA.
