2022 Next Level Collegiate Umpire Camp


Dates of the Camp: 09-11 September 2022. Pre-Camp meeting will be Friday evening at Pioneer Park (TBA). Games will begin early Saturday morning and continue throughout the day. Early Sunday games; plan on leaving the fields by 3:00 pm.

Location: Pioneer Park, 8755 N. 83rd Avenue, Peoria, AZ 85345 (map)

Camp Format:

Officials will work 3.5 innings (or half of the time limit) and then be given feedback. A second crew will finish the game.
All Campers are expected to be proficient in the three-man system, well-versed in the CCA Collegiate Softball Umpires Manual, and very familiar with the NCAA rule book and Case Book before coming to this Camp.
Focus of this camp will be on field performance at the Collegiate level.
Observations will be focused on the finite differences that separate extremely successful officials from the pack.
NCAA Mechanics & Rules will be used.
In order to provide campers competition that will closely mirror what would be seen during an actual NCAA contest, games will be between Arizona Junior Colleges (several National Championships) and Premier Girls Fastpitch teams.

Instructors: All Instructors have worked in the NCAA post-season. Our staff includes Mike Bartling, Paul “Smokey” Edds, Tracy Laycock, Tanya Garig, Sally Walker (SUP), Jim Sanderson, John Baca, Katrina Kershaw, Brett Higgins, and Mike Gump.

Conference Coördinators: Jim Adrian, Terry Ching, Dave Neidlinger, Joanne Venditto (SUP), and Sally Walker (SUP) have been invited.

Lodging: Lodging is not included in the price of the camp. The tournament director is still negotiating for a competitive camp rate at several hotels in close proximity to the complex. Our goal is to have breakfast included in the rate for campers. Once we have details solidified we will email campers with the information.

Cost: The cost of the camp is $275 per camper. Lunch will be provided each day, as will water for all campers.

Payment: Payment is required when application is submitted. If accepted for the Camp, this payment is non-refundable. If you are not accepted for the Camp, your money will be refunded.
