Clinic Overview
UCU offers innovative instruction preparing umpires to work advanced two-man mechanics at the NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III, JUCO and NFHS Varsity levels. We believe in an intense and professional approach to the instruction of two-man umpire mechanics with an emphasis on plate and base work augmented by live game evaluation and on-field drills.

Program of Instruction
Instruction 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.

The talented staff of instructors will be led by UCU President, Chris Marshall, a four-time Super Regional Umpire and Conference Coordinator for four Division I Conferences and Alex Skandalis, Conference Coordinator for four Division III and two Junior College Conferences.

The clinic will take place on college campuses in the Syracuse/Cortland area.
