USA Softball Umpire Training Opportunities

There's always a need for umpires. SSUA will train you for free anytime during the year. See SSUA contact information on the Umpire page below.


If you want more intense training than we offer in Spokane on a weekly basis, a USA Softball National Umpire School is the way to go.

2020 schools and camps have finished or been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

A list of 2021 schools and camps will be available around the first of the year and will be linked here on the USA Softball of Idaho District 8 (Spokane) website at
