Vermont ASA: Umpires
The ASA umpire program is among the nation's largest officiating organizations with over 27,000 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.

Here in Vermont, umpires have the opportunity to officiate mens, womens, and co-ed slow pitch, both in league and tournament play. Another opportunity is in girls fast pitch tournaments. Some of our umpires advance to work ASA National Championships.
Our umpires are under the leadership of Dave Christiansen, our state UIC.
Current ASA umpires may be interested to find several fies available on the Download page.
