2018 Softball Clinic

Posted on December 10, 2017 / Posted under Announcement, Softball

Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Fenton High School.

The clinic will begin at 8am and run until 2pm. Some of the items covered include new rules, points of emphasis, and questions about the IHSA Part 1 test. A pizza lunch will also be served. At 2pm, officials may go to the small gym, where newer umpires can “get behind the plate” as high school pitchers and catchers will participate.

Sunday, March 18 at the Rosemont Dome Field #1.

AOA has the field from 5 to 7pm, when high school teams will scrimmage while newer umpires can “work” an inning or two. Veteran umpires will also be on hand to help serve as mentors. Umpires should plan on having full umpire equipment for both clinics if they are going behind the plate.
