ASA/USA Softball announces 2015-2016 National Umpire Schools
OKLAHOMA CITY — The Amateur Softball Association (ASA) of America and USA Softball announced 11 ASA/USA Softball National Umpire Schools, including an Advanced National Umpire School for Fast Pitch, that will take place across the country from Dec. 2015 through June 2016. The schools will take place in 11 states: California, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas and Virginia.
“These 10 ASA/USA National Umpire Schools and the Advanced Fast Pitch Camp are designed to teach umpires at every level the ins and outs of being an ASA/USA umpire,” said ASA/USA Director of Umpires Kevin Ryan. “They are also designed to leave the umpires with training ideas to go back to their Local Association and share with their complete umpire program. To continue to learn and lead while on and off the field is something ASA/USA Softball holds in the highest regard. Attending one of these schools would be extremely beneficial to all who attend.”
Each ASA/USA National Umpire School is run by a team of National Umpire staff members, who serve as the clinicians. With a ratio of at least one clinician per 25-30 students, each participant will receive hands-on personal instruction on both fast pitch and slow pitch umpiring including base and plate mechanics. At the Fast Pitch Advanced Umpire School, instruction is focused on fast pitch only while the ratio is one instructor per 10 students.
Registration fees for National Umpire Schools vary by location. To register for an upcoming National Umpire School or an Advanced Umpire School, please contact the school coordinator listed on the National Umpire School section of ASAUSASoftball.com. Please note that only certain schools are currently open for registration.
