Notes from the Training Staff – September 2019

Fall Ball has started. What is the official title for college Fall Ball? See page 10 of the NCAA Rule Book for the answer. Are there special rules for Fall Ball? The answer is yes…have you read the recently re-posted article on the Locker Room?

You should have registered with CCSUA for the 2020 season. There are a lot of games to cover and you are not on the list of Active Officials until you have registered.

Have you taken the September test yet? It will no longer be available after September 30, 2019. The assigners are in the middle of their assignments for the 2020 season. They are looking first for umpires who are using the resources to train year-round.
