ASA Umpire LogoThe ASA umpire program is among the nation’s largest officiating organizations with over 35,000 officials actively involved each year. ASA officials are nationally recognized as the best trained and proficient in the sport and are involved in competition starting with league play, city, state and national championships. Ultimately, ASA umpires could officiate events such as world championship, Pan American and Olympic competitions.

The ASA annually hosts local, state and national umpire clinics which literally blanket the nation and bring the best instruction available in the sport to every region. Over the last decade, the Amateur Softball Association’s umpire program has become an innovator in the production of quality training materials. When a clinic is not available – videos, books, slides and other instructional aids allow instruction to continue.

Congratulations to Kim Johnson – one of USA Softball’s six newly certified umpires for international competitions by the World Baseball Softball Confederation – Softball Division!  Kim completed testing at a WBSC Umpire Seminar in early June.  The testing includes written examinations, on field evaluation, leadership testing, and physical skills tests.  Kim, who is a Deputy Umpire In Chief for USA Softball of Cincinnati, is one of four Cincinnati umpires with USA Softball Elite status.  This status is a pre-requisite for applying for WBSC Certification.  Be sure and congratulate Kim next time you see him on the field!
