USA Softball of Michigan Umpire Clinics and Registration Information

  • For 2020, we are waiving all registration late fees.

Hall of Fame Nominations

  • Our old deadline date is April 15. We are going to push that back to June 15 to give people more time to submit. Depending on the world situation, that, too, could change. For now, the new deadline for Hall of Fame submission is June 15.

We will continue to monitor all information that is coming to us from local, state, and federal officials regarding COVID-19. Again, the safety and well-being of our athletes, umpires, and staff, is our priority. We will update as needed.
