The Rochester District Umpires' Association (RDUA) provides umpire services to baseball and softball programs in the Rochester, NY area. Our primary purpose is to service boys high school baseball. We also realize the importance of serving developmental leagues and programs that allow players to continue enjoying the game when their school playing days are over. The RDUA offers members the opportunity to receive NFHS Certification and ASA Softball Registration and Certification through a clinic program that is provided at no additional costs. Please use our contact info page if you are interested in becoming an RDUA umpire.
On January 31st at Brockport High School Ron Gabriel will present the new rules and points on emphasis from 10AM till noon. As per your request immediately after at 12:30PM till 2PM will be covering balks and pitching rules. We are going to use the high school for the this clinic because of the elevated stage. One clinic credit will be earned whether you attend one or both sessions that day. You do not have to attend both.
The remaining clinic schedule is available here.
All Varsity members must attend 3 classroom sessions, plus 1 on field session to qualify for high school baseball. All Non-Varsity officials should attend four (4) classroom sessions plus one (1) on field session.
