Happy Holidays

As the Holiday Season is upon us, we at GSB want to wish all of you around the world and safe and happy Holiday Season. In 2013, GSB will launch its VERIFIED service, allowing players all over the USA to have scouts come out and evaluate them while they play in live games. We are extremely excited about this, as our goal is helping as many players as possible. Rather than the expensive showcases where only tools are evaluated, GSB has spent almost 15 years educating, evaluating and exposing professional athletes around the world. For the past 5 years, GSB has done the same for players looking for college scholarships. In 2013, we will start identifying and educating the youth market, allowing parents and athletes to be know where they are at, what to expect, and what to work on.

We thank all of our staff and associates for their time and hard work. We wish the recently signed players a healthy and successful season, and for all those players looking for opportunities.....we look forward to serving you!

An ever-changing sports landscape requires dynamic organizations willing to innovate and adapt in order to meet the needs of the communities served. Global Scouting Bureau has provided collegiate and professional opportunities for over 2500 players in 23 countries worldwide based on the strength of our network.

We have been very fortunate to connect with many of you using new social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Through these channels, you have notified us of players searching for opportunities, as well as opportunities available for players on various different levels in various different areas. What you may not know is that these are the exact qualities GSB looks for in a scout!

Becoming a scout with GSB allows you to provide opportunities for the players you work with, as well as to help the teams you have relationships with find players. Beyond that, GSB will PAY you for your work! We are always looking for former players, current and former coaches and scouts to come on board to help us to educate, evaluate, and expose athletes!

GSB benefits by bringing in qualified scouts who can identify and assist talented players in continuing their careers. Expanding our reach allows us to better serve the players and teams we work with.

Associate scouts benefit financially, as well as by expanding the number of options and opportunities they can provide for the players they serve, as well as EVERY player in his area.

Players benefit when their coaches, managers, and mentors become scouts by taking advantage of an expanded number of opportunities around the world!

If you think you have the relationships, drive, and willingness to help players that it takes to become a scout, visit us at GSBsports.com and let us help you and your players along the way!
