2020 USA Softball NJ District 2 Umpire Information

Hello Potential Umpires:

As I consider it very unlikely we will be able to offer an indoor umpire class as we normally do over the winter, we will be offering a fall baseball/softball umpire class outdoors this fall, on Saturdays from 4pm to 6pm, for six weeks running, in Cranford.

We will begin on Saturday September 19, and continue until we have completed 12 hours of instruction, with makeups for rainouts.

Although you will also learn the book rules, this is a hands on, field-based class. I assure you it is not easy, and when you have completed the class, you will be ready to take the field on Day 1. We have a lot of fun giving this class, and if you have an interest in this stuff, you will no doubt enjoy it as well.

The cost is $125.  Please forward this note to anyone who you believe might have an interest, as we always need to bring in new umpires. This course is also open to umpires who have worked before, but want to sharpen their skills, and get the opportunity to work with our staff in USA NJ D2.

Learning how to umpire doesn't help much if you don't have a source for games once you are certified. As the umpire assigner (and commissioner) for USA NJ SB District 2 (the ASA), umpire assigner for the Union County Conference HS Baseball, the coordinator for Cranford Middle School Baseball and Softball and assigner for Scotch Plains Middle School Baseball, New Jersey assigner for Blue Chip Softball Showcases, and umpire assigner for more than 25 other leagues, in both softball and baseball, I normally have about 7,000 - 8,000 games a year to assign. This, of course, was not an ordinary year.

If interested please reach out. 

The class is also available to those who have been with us in a class before, but have not yet had a chance to get on the field much, or at all, and want to improve their skills. For any who have taken the class in the past, there is no additional charge.

Thanks, Keith Hoffman
