What Our Camp Participants Are Saying...

I attended the Diamond Umpire Academy Camp this past weekend in New Jersey. It was by far the best camp I have ever been to. With my little experience, I was at first intimidated. By the first hour, I was totally comfortable. These are top notch, A level officials who really want everyone to eat and win. I was especially impressed with Steve Gould. His attention to detail and clear explanation of teaching the art of officiating was very much appreciated. Tom Meyer was extremely thorough and encouraging. I learned more from Tom and Steve in a weekend than I ever have before. If you want to climb the ladder and perfect your craft, please attend this camp!
