Audition/Observation Camp: DUA is excited to announce its return to the Mid-Atlantic region! We have found a home that will provide umpires working in several conferences the ease of driving to a high level camp. The camp will be based in the Pennsville, NJ area easily accessible to major hotel and dining options. This event will be held in conjunction with a Gold level National qualifying tournament. The camp is intended to provide an opportunity for umpires to audition for and/or move up in the ranks of several NCAA conferences that will be represented by their respective coordinators and/or assignors. Umpires will work competitive games using the collegiate three umpire system. All games will be evaluated by our outstanding DUA staff of post season and WCWS umpires. Campers will receive feedback and instruction during and following each game. Umpires will work games at all three positions.
Level: Intermediate to advanced Requirements: Umpires must have some collegiate experience working the collegiate three umpire system.
