West Region: Softball Umpire Clinic
March 20, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - March 22, 2020 @ 2:00 pm$120
Little League’s Western Region is proud to present its first ever umpire training clinic designed exclusively for the Little League Softball Umpire! If you haven’t umpired softball before, this is a chance to expand your game. The vast majority of the mechanics used to umpire a Little League softball game are universal throughout Little League. If you are an experienced softball umpire, this is an opportunity to get ready for the season, meet other softball umpires and expand your softball umpire network. Over the course of this weekend we will reinforce the basics of Little League’s two-umpire mechanic system – both on the plate and in the field. In addition, you will learn both the rules and on-field mechanics that apply specifically to softball. We will address recent rule changes within the softball program, provide you drill repetitions on the field, along with plate work in the cages and simulate live game opportunities. And you will have the opportunity to ask questions of Softball Regional and World Series umpires. Come join a group of highly-qualified Western Region instructors for a weekend of education and camaraderie as we work to continue to expand the Little League Softball program!
