Does anyone know of any upcoming clinics in the Sacramento area? I am a first year umpire that has the "bug" big time and am looking for any training or instruction. Any help would be great.

Fall Ball

   Starting in a few weeks will be fall ball at Sac City college, this is a HS league that plays four days a week. These games are for umpire training and are not paid. However it is a great opportunity to practice our skills in a not competitive setting, as the games are practice for the teams as well. I myself have used this for the last three years and found it to be a great help once the next season begins.

                                   Good Luck,

Fall Umpire Clinic


Circle September 13 and 20 on your calendar. There will be a free umpire clinic held both days at American River College from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Register on this site. It's the best training you can get in the Sacramento area. You'll get a fantastic start on your umpire career at these clinics. Hope to see you there.

9/13 Clinic

Once again, Swanny & crew (too many to thank by name) did a great job with the Saturday clinic @ ARC.  As a rookie just finishing 1st year with NCOA/RCOA there's ALWAYS something I take away to add to my growth as an umpire. 

Thanks again to the entire crew of instructors
