Welcome to new and experienced NCUA umpires!
With the 2022 season winding down, we wanted to get ahead of the curve and have already confirmed a date, time and location for the 2023 NCUA Umpire Clinic. We are coming off another record year for tournaments and teams booked with Top Gun and our rec ball leagues and look forward to building upon that success again next year!
Below are the NCUA clinic dates. It is mandatory that all umpires attend the class room clinic plus at least one day of on-field training. Umpires attending both receive first priority when the season begins. (On-field training clinics will be added at a later date)
- The NCUA In-Class Clinic will be held on Jan. 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Greene County Sports Complex (342 US-13, Snow Hill, NC 28580)
We will be discussing a variety of topics at the clinic for new and experienced umpires in the classroom including proper dress code, proper positioning, differences in rules for leagues, signals and more. The afternoon portion will be instruction on the field, which includes rotations in 2-man crew, dealing with confrontations, balks, communication between umpires and much more!
NCUA booking fees for the upcoming year will be as listed below (Note: Fees must be paid at clinics or prior to calling any baseball)
- Tournament, Showcase, Rec baseball: $175.00/year.
We will also be discussing the new areas of tournaments that we will have in 2023.
There will also be on-field training with live teams. These dates will be discussed during the meeting and/or posted on the NCUA Website (www.ncuaumpires.com).
Thank you for your support and dedication to NCUA. We look forward to meeting everyone at the Training Clinics. Email us if you have any questions or concerns.
