2015 FHSAA Softball Training Manual

   SOFTBALL

Softball season will be upon you before you know it, most of you have either began your training for next season or the planning for your trainings. As past state clinicians or state finals umpires you have established  yourself as a Leader in your Local Association. The commitment you have and are making to the game of softball in Florida in order to make it the best possible is to be congratulated.

The FHSAA Evaluation process over the past few years have shown there needed to be a more consistent approach to the training the umpires were getting. Everyone from Pensacola to Miami should have the same training material to best prepare for any post-season assignments they may be assigned to work. With the goal of having all parties working from the same page, a NEW TRAINING SYLLABUS for 3-Man Mechanics has been developed.

The link listed below has the current information you and your umpires need to know as you prepare for the 2015 High School Softball season. You have videos and power-points for mechanics, the evaluation form and process, requirements and expectations for you and your umpires who may wish to be considered for Post-Season assignments next year.

The goal is to have all parties educated on what is expected and acceptable from a umpire or association who strives to work post-season games.
