The Metroplex Softball umpires Association, Inc. registers, sanctions, and
trains umpires as independent contractors to provide umpiring services to MSUA
leagues and tournaments. The annual Umpire training (February Each Year) includes three classroom
sessions held on three consecutive Thursdays and a 2-3 hour on-field mechanics

zip; home or cell number, and email address) to firstname.lastname@example.org. All umpire training includes rules,
case study, a take home exam, and on-field training.
The registration fee for all umpires is
currently $85 [$60 for USSSA

National Office. This registration fee must be paid prior to an umpire
being allowed to work any league or tournament game.
The official MSUA umpire uniform can be purchased from
BOOMBAH. The official shirt for MSUA league
play will be WHITE. Umpires must also purchase, the new hat, shorts or
pants and BLACK or WHITE socks. All of these items have the new USSSA logo. For
tournament play umpires will be allowed to wear the RED or WHITE
shirt and should bring both when working tournaments.
Umpire schedules are emailed and/or mailed to each
umpire and will also be posted below after the league registration and schedule
creation process has been completed. Only the original schedules will be posted.
Changes or substitutions will not be posted. It is the umpires
responsibility to work with the scheduler if a change needs to be made.
