2024 Umpire Clinic

RAAA Softball is once again partnering with Laurie Dineen, a Minnesota State High School League umpire trainer and NCAA Division III umpire, to host an official USA Softball Umpire Clinic. The clinic is open to anyone 13 years and older (including adults), and prepares participants to umpire 6U, 8U and 10U games in Rockford, earning $65 per night! And because it is an official USA Softball Umpire Clinic, with just a little paperwork and a nominal fee, participants can become an official USA Softball umpire and officiate league games all the way up to the 18U level anywhere in Minnesota, earning up to $48 per game!

RAAA is committed to fostering new umpires for youth softball. Our cadet umpire program continues in 2023, where new league umpires will be assigned as a second umpire in the field, allowing them to learn the ropes with a more experienced umpire. RAAA’s goal is to have two umpires on the field for all league games, ultimately improving the experience for players and fans.
