What We’re All About
Track Record of Success
WHEN DO WE UMPIRE:
We have a spring and a fall season with the spring being slightly larger than the fall. In between seasons, we send many umpires to USA Softball and other travel Tournaments. By the end of the year, we have umpired more than 6,000 softball games.
During the spring, new umpires can expect to interact with many of our Advisory Board Members who will serve as mentors. Please contact Chico or Brian

DRESS / UNIFORM:
We require you to wear an approved USA Softball Uniform. Uniforms and equipment can be purchased through payroll deduction, once all dues are satisfied. One of our Board Members is the USA Softball Uniform dealer for Georgia, so it is easy for you to get what you need. Uniforms will be available for purchase at all meetings.
USA Softball Rule Books:
USA Softball Rule Books are available when your USA Softball Registration fee is paid.
We pay every other week through automatic bank deposit. There are other changes that will be explained. Assuming you meet the necessary threshold, we will provide you with a 1099 at the end of the year.
WHAT WE EXPECT:
· We expect you to be on time, every time – Remember, “to be on-time is to be late”
· We expect you to dress like a real umpire, i.e. proper uniform, clean and pressed, shoes polished.
· We expect you to study USA Softball Rules, becoming proficient as you work more games.
· We expect you to review your local rules before every assignment.
· We expect you to interact amiably with the coaches and parents.
· We expect you to act like a professional at all times.
· We expect you to “kill ‘em with kindness”.
We use an on-line system called Arbiter Sports (www.arbiterssports.com) to schedule games, track your availability, issue invoices and pay. This system is easy to use after a little trial and error!
WHEN DO WE START (Tentative):
Generally, we will start the 1st part of March (for the spring league) and the first part of September (for our fall leagues and HS). Starts differ significantly by parks
