Calling all volleyball athletes! Are you hoping to play in college? Are you truly good enough to play in college?

For 42 years, National Scouting Report has been properly evaluating potential collegiate athletes for college scholarship consideration. Only 5% of high school/club volleyball athletes in each graduating class get the opportunity to play in college on scholarship!

In order to know if you truly qualify to play in college, an athlete must be properly evaluated! The college coaches depend on NSR scouts to provide them with an accurate and dependable Scouting report. During each Hype Nation tournament, you can be evaluated. There is no cost to be evaluated.
