Program of Instruction
Umpiring curriculum includes comprehensive classroom discussion of mechanics and techniques, NCAA Rules and CCA Mechanics, The Strike Zone, Handling Situations, Communication, Philosophy of Plate and Base Work, and Field Work and Drills.
Students develop advanced thinking methods and methodologies for recognition of play development with a specialized focus on non-routine and unexpected variations.
This innovative instruction prepares umpires to work three-man mechanics at the highest level of NCAA baseball. Students will be taught the learning techniques to become leaders and crew chiefs in their local associations and how to elevate their game at all levels of organized baseball. This intense and professional approach to instruction of advanced three-man umpire mechanics is augmented with live game assignments with evaluations of on-field performance.
