USA Softball - Umpires
Fast Pitch & Slow Pitch
The Greater San Joaquin Softball Association offers one of the best umpire programs in the nation. Our training program goes to great lengths to get our umpires prepared for the season. This way we can offer a consistent, organized effort week in and week out. Each season we offer several training clinics. We provide ongoing instruction and evaluation of all umpires.
Ron Adkins has recently accepted the position of UIC after 30 years with former UIC Frank Cortez after becoming rated ISF (International Softball Federation), which is the highest achievement for an USA umpire. In an association of our size, that is per capita well above any other nation wide. Greater San Joaquin can also say, we've had one of the two American umpires selected to the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. There has been 61 umpires selected to the National Indicator Fraternity.
We would be remiss if we did not mention the hundreds of umpires who work recreation softball in all the cities of our association. Without their continued effort, the backbone of the program would not be as successful, and our achievements would not be as impressive.
If you want to become an umpire, it is a great part time job that works around your busy schedule, and creates life long friendships, click on the link to get more information.
