This is a friendly reminder to all current certified umpires and umpires who have been observed seeking a new certification for 2017. Umpires who have not completed the 2017 Rules/Umpire Test, must do so by December 18, 2017 to maintain their certification, or to become certified. The testing sites will be taken down in December to prepare for the 2018 tests. Outdoor umpires must score a minimum grade of 95% and arena umpires must score a minimum grade of 94%.
As the USPA Umpires, LLC UMP Program continues to develop, safe and consistent umpiring is an important aspect of our growing sport. The UMP Reimbursement Program is equally important to USPA Member Clubs in achieving professional or certified umpires, and reimbursing clubs a portion of funds for acquiring umpire services. Umpires must be logged in as a USPA member to take the Rules/Umpire Test. To complete the Umpire/Rules test, please click here.
Umpires not meeting certification requirements will not be considered a certified umpire for 2018. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Head umpire Instructor, Steve Lane, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (352) 454-6611.
