This program is open to anyone that currently umpires baseball or anyone who is interested in becoming an umpire. This day long clinic will sharpen the skills needed to becoming a better umpire. 

The program will also be a benefit to current umpires that would like to 'move up' in High School levels or on to the college ranks, as current HS (NFHS) and College (CCA) mechanics will be taught.

We will start with some of the basic fundamentals of umpiring and build on those concepts throughout the day. We will focus on 2-man mechanics.
~ Proper plate positioning/mechanics
~ Cage work - calling pitches
~ Proper field mechanics/Positioning
~ Proper signaling
What do students need to bring?
~ Umpire uniform (If you have one) or clothes for running and baseball activities.
