NEXT TRAINING MEETING IS MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 6 PM, AT SYSA BINGO HALL IS FOR EVERYONE!

USA Softball rule books will be available at the Monday meetings if you haven't yet received yours.

Be sure to print off a copy of the USA Softball test from the SSUA website (www.eteamz.com/ssua). Go to "Rules, Documents & Materials." The test and 2017 rules changes are at the top of the page.

Feb. 20 and March 6 meetings are for ALL umpires.

Feb. 27 is also for the new umpires, BUT Rich Hobson is setting up uniform/equipment sales this day. This is the ONLY scheduled uniform day. If you are a veteran in need of uniforms or equipment, Rich will begin selling at 6:30 pm. (Please don’t enter the building until 6:30! New umpires will be busy learning!)

WE ARE LESS THAN A MONTH FROM THE FIRST HIGH SCHOOL GAMES!! Time to get our uniforms dusted off, our bodys in shape and start thinking about how we all can be a better umpire!  

The SYSA Bingo Hall is at 1221 N. Howard, on the corner of Howard and Boone, across the street from the Arena.  Park in the Value Village lot on the west side of its building off Boone Ave., or on the street on the north side of Value Village. Enter the Bingo Hall through its  west-side entrance. DOORS WILL NOT OPEN until 5:45pm.

Rain, rain go away … but if it doesn’t …

check the status of your game

on the SSUA Weather Hotline, 509-723-4511

        

        Games canceled or postponed by weather, or other unforeseen circumstances, by 12 noon will be posted to the Weather Hotline. … Umpires will be called regarding cancellations or postponements that occur after 12 noon.

       In the event of inclement weather, if your game is not on the recorded message and you haven’t been called, GO TO YOUR GAME SITE! Because weather conditions can vary within our area, rainouts ARE NOT one-size-fits-all. You may have to postpone a game when you arrive, but that is one of your responsibilities that you can’t do from home!

WE CAN ALWAYS USE MORE UMPIRES!
