We are looking forward to a very successful 2021 Cadet training class for NFHS Baseball umpires and NFHS Softball umpires learning the NFHS rules, mechanics and general IUA information. The IUA is proud to have these individuals learn how to become baseball and softball umpires in the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA).
A note from the instructors: I want to thank you for your interest in attending our school! The IUA has a 40+ years history of training baseball and softball umpires to support the NJSIAA High Schools in Southern New Jersey.
This is your time to become one of our next success stories whether that means becoming a New Jersey State Championship umpire or providing the sub-varsity teams with quality umpiring. The IUA training program is designed for you. Our training methods are organized to instruct umpires on the NFHS and MLB baseball / softball rules while providing field mechanics and the necessary skills to become a better umpire, such as…
- Classroom Training: Class discussion will include the rules of Baseball or Softball, field mechanics/field responsibilities, plate mechanics/responsibilities and handling situations along with videos. All class materials are supplied with registration.
- On Field Training: This training will include on field base and plate mechanic/positioning drills. (This training will reinforce instruction learned in the classroom and is in addition to the classroom training)
- Plate Umpire Training: This training will include plate mechanics and positioning drills. (This training will reinforce instruction learned in the classroom and is in addition to the classroom training).
Thank you, again, for taking the time to explore what our program has to offer! I look forward to providing you with a comprehensive experience at the IUA Cadet Class, and am thrilled to be able to make a difference in your umpiring career. If there is anything I, or my staff, can assist you with, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We’re here to help.
