MYAS/Gopher State Umpire Training Clinic

 Our clinics are designed to allow umpires of all abilities an opportunity to enhance their skills and/or become educated in the finer points of umpiring.

Attending a Gopher State Umpire Training Clinic will definitely enhance your chance to work more baseball games. Assignors want trained, competent umpires on their staff.

2014 MYAS/Gopher State Umpire Game Fees

2014 MYAS Umpire Policies

The 2014 MYAS Umpire Training program featured two formats – a long clinic and a short clinic.

 

Short or Long Clinic?

If you attended a full clinic in 2013 you only need to attend the short version in 2014. If you attended the short version in 2013, you need to attend the full clinicin 2014. If you are not MSHSL certified, you will be required to take the long version every year.

The long clinic will cover mechanics and rules. The umpire will rotate between stations covering plate mechanics, the one-man umpire system, rules and game management.

The short clinic  will cover MYAS logistics and get into some of the finer points of umpiring. There will be a question and answer session with an experienced clinician. Mechanics, rules and game management will all be discussed in an advanced format.

MYAS/Gopher State Membership Requirement

In order to be an MYAS registered official, you must be a registered MYAS member. Your MYAS membership is valid annually from April 1 through December 31 of each year and is applicable to all MYAS baseball competitions. We will have membership forms at each meeting, so you can fill them out on site. Remember - your MYAS membership fee is included in the clinic fee.

To register for the Official's Clinics, log in to your Officials Control Center panel and click the Registrations tab. If you do not have a login, contact Buddy Hemric at 763-781-2220 x1717 or buddy@myas.org.

The cost of all live clinics are $30.00. If you are late (more than five minutes) you will be asked to reschedule for a new date (NO EXCEPTIONS). If you do not preregister by noon the day of a weeknight clinic or by 4:00pm the Friday before a weekend clinic, you will be charged an extra $5.00!

Background Check

If you are not MSHSL certified, you will be required to complete a background check ($20.00) prior to having the opportunity to work a Gopher State/MYAS game. Background Checks are good for TWO YEARS from the date of approval. These may be completed at each clinic or will be available upon request by your ASSIGNOR or the MYAS.

Concussion Training

Minnesota's New "Concussion Law" - The Minnesota Legislature's new Concussion Law requires on-line training for all coaches and officials and concussion education for all parents and athletes starting this fall. The Minnesota Legislature recently passed a "Concussion Law" which requires any municipality, business, school district or non-profit organization that organizes a youth athletic activity and charges a fee to follow the statutes requirements, including the implementation of concussion training and education and establishing safe return-to-play policies for athletes who sustain a concussion.

The law mandates that all coaches and officials receive concussion training and education and then at three-year intervals thereafter. Those of you who are Minnesota State High School certified will need to do the on-line video training that is currently on the Minnesota State High School League website in the Officials Corner section. For those of you who are not State High School Certified, we recommend that you go the National Federation of State High School website and complete their concussion education training; you can go to (www.nfhslearn.com). This course requires registration but it is FREE!

Both training sessions involve watching a video and then successfully completing a quiz. The training will take less than half an hour and then you can print a certificate of completion. This certificate of completion needs to be shown to the MYAS in order to officiate this season.

You must submit a copy of this Concussion Training Certificate of Completion before you will be allowed to officiate for the MYAS this season. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NOT AN MYAS REQUIREMENT, IT IS A LAW PASSED BY THE MINNESOTA LEGISLATURE.

Code of Conduct Requirement

Any Official that is not MYAS registered is required to sign and return the Code of Conduct Form prior to being paid. Fax to MYAS Baseball Staff at 763-781-1922 or mail it to the MYAS office. 

 

The MYAS will use the following umpire assignors to assign our league and/or tournament games.
