UMPIRE RULES CLINICS: Our first rules clinic will take place on Sunday, March 29th, 2:00 p.m. at The Buff. In addition to going over rule changes & clarifications, this meeting is used to register all umpires and collect the $55 registration fees. The annual on-field clinic will take place at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 3rd. The clinic will be run by DUIC Krieger. All umpires are asked to be in attendance. Managers and players are not only welcome, but encouraged to attend as well.

UMPIRE PAY: At the league meeting in March, it was approved to increase umpire pay in the 2020 season to $28 per game. This is an increase of $2 over last season. State tournament pay remains at $25 per game, though that will very likely go up in 2021.

BAT STICKERING: In order to have your bats checked and stickered for the 2020 season, contact either DUIC Krieger or USA Softball of North Dakota Director of Operations RC Courtright. One or both should be at the complex for each league night's opening games. No other umpires or local administrators are authorized to sticker bats. We will attempt to be as accommodating as possible, but we would prefer that teams do not use bats until they have a sticker in place.

REPLACEMENT UMPIRES: Umpires who are unable to work their scheduled games need to reach out to other umpires to find a replacement. Click here for the contact information of our other umpires.
