Curriculum

the Mid-American advanced Umpire Clinic

Plate Work

Field Work

Rules/breakout sessions

We will spend a great deal of time working with you individually to help you develop a consistent strike zone and to improve your mechanics. We will also work on your stance, voice, tracking, and timing.

We will walk you through the responsibilities of the plate and base umpires, covering crucial items like pause, read, react, working 2nd base, and taking plays at the plate. Then you will run drills with live teams to master the process.

We will go over crucial NCAA rules and points of emphasis. You will also attend several breakout sessions throughout the weekend - reviewing mechanics, video sessions, nutrition and fitness.

Signals & Mechanics

Handling Situations

Professionalism

We will fine tune your signals and mechanics to make them sharp and crisp which will help project confidence and sell your calls.

 

 

Handling situations is what separates the good umpires from the great ones. We will cover how to handle game situations, balks, arguments, and ejections.

We will go over what is expected of umpires both on and off the field. You will hear directly from supervisors on what they look for in prospective umpires.

live game evaluations

Equipment Check

Advancement

You will work live games while receiving instant feedback from our instructors.

Proper fitting equipment is vital to your safety and wellbeing on the baseball field. We will ensure your equipment is safe and fits properly before getting behind the plate.

We will discuss several topics that will better prepare you for being a "crew chief" at your current level or a more experienced umpire at the next level.
