What Our Camp Participants Are Saying...

I have attended several DUA camps in the past year. Each camp I have gained more knowledge in mechanics, positioning, rules and communication. The DUA staff has much experience at the college level and provides a wealth of knowledge to the campers. My highest level of softball umpiring before attending a DUA camp was at the high school level. DUA was my first ever softball umpiring camp. I went to the camp looking for feedback from others as to where I was as a softball umpire and try to gain some knowledge. While attending my first DUA camp, I gained the opportunity to join the ODAC conference. At the end of my first season working in the ODAC, while attending another DUA camp, I gained a second opportunity in which I've joined in the USA South conference. DUA has opened doors for me in college softball umpiring and continues to help me gain more confidence on the field.
