The event attracts the top presenters from across the country and the world, discussing interesting topics that are designed to attract both Fast Pitch and Slo-Pitch umpires.
Start planning now to attend! Hook up with a buddy and share accommodations! Bring a fellow official along! Invite an umpire from the USA or some other country!
