COVID-19 & The Season

Posted by Gerald Tomko on May 23, 2020 at 12:30 AM Comments comments (0)

 Good day all,

 

I hope that everyone and their families are keeping safe in these troubled times. I wanted to update you all. Softball Canada has canceled all championships however left it to the provinces if and when there will still be a shortened season in some cases. I believe June 1, 2020, is the next announcement from Softball Alberta. We will keep you all informed. You are all valued members of our association and your safety is our number one concern.

 

Stay safe out there.

Umpires from coast to coast will gather every week for Blue Connections 2020, an informative half hour of conversations designed to make everyone a better umpire. With an educational focus on developing and reviewing basic skills - every week some of Canada’s leading international umpires will focus on the basics of mechanics, game management and fitness, with a specific focus on the WBSC Umpire manuals.

WHEN UMPIRES NEED TO CHAT

SUNDAY, MAY 24 - 7:00 PM EDT

SPEAKERS: FRANKIE BILLINGSLEY & KRIS HARTLEY

 

There is sometimes confusion or uncertainty on the field. What situations demand that the umpires need to conference? When we do conference - who leads the discussion? What should they say? Join two of Canada’s leading officials as they help us understand the basic protocols around umpire conferences.
