Why Umpire ASA?
The ASA Umpire program is among the nation's largest officiating organizations, with over 42,000 officials actively involved each year. ASA officials are nationally recognized as the best trained and proficient in the sport and are involved in competition starting with league play, city, state, and national championships. Ultimately, ASA umpires could officiate events such as world championships, or the Pan American and Olympic competitions.
The ASA annually hosts local, state, and national umpire clinics which literally blanket the nation and bring the best instruction available in the sport to every region. Over the last decade, the Amateur Softball Association's umpire program has become an innovator in the production of quality training materials. When a clinic is not available - videos, books, slides, and other instructional aids allow instruction to continue.
