Course Schedule

Umpire

The OUTS Evaluation Course is a seven day/six night evaluation and placement course, where students in attendance are eligible for placement in independent professional and college summer leagues. This year, 30+ umpire positions are available for placement during the upcoming season.

OUTS will begin on February 14, 2017 and conclude February 20, 2017. The first couple of days will primarily include training and drills on the Three-Umpire Ssystem and rules and interpretations. This will also include instruction on handling situations. The remaining portion of the course will be primarily devoted to the evaluation of student performance and the selection of qualified umpires for placement. There will be continued advanced training during this time on specific areas such as crew dynamics, administrative responsibilties, incident reports, etc.

OUTS + Beachside Umpire Classic

Students also have the option of extending their training by choosing the OUTS + Beachside Umpire Classic option (February 9 - 20, 2017). This option will provide you a comprehensive look at both the Two-Umpire and Three-Umpire Systems, rules and interpretations, and footwork and mechanics training.

Training

Our goal is to provide advanced training for students that attend our program so that they are best prepared for jobs in independent professional baseball. Our field work and drills are designed to improve umpire mechanics and instill greater confidence. Our instructors' combined 40+ years of professional baseball umpiring experience can assist each umpire in determining the style and mechanics that best suits their personality and body. We will focus on improving each umpire individually.

Umpires will be placed on crews during their time at the course, and all assignments will be made as a group.

Instructors

Our staff includes current and former professional umpires, MiLB and independent league supervisors, and Wendelstedt Umpire School instructors.

Evaluation and Placement

This course is meant to be an advanced extension of umpire school. Students will be evaluated using the same criteria and standards for professional umpires in Minor League Baseball. Students will be evaluated, of course, on their performance on the field. Judgment for plays and situations is a key factor, but we are primarily looking for instincts, timing, and positioning. We will also be focused on poise, demeanor, and ability to recover from unusual situations on the field. Unlike other program evaluations, we will provide instant verbal as well as written feedback on your performance on the field. We will work in real time with umpires to accentuate their strengths and manage their weaknesses.

Each student will then receive a face-to-face evaluation of their work, and whether/where they will be placed for the upcoming season.

Results

We have provided umpires for several independent professional and college summer leagues all over the country. Many of the students that attend OUTS have ultimate aspirations of attending umpire school and moving into profsessional baseball. 53 OUTS umpires have attended umpire school and received placement in professional baseball after training with us! That huge success rate, along with our affiliation with the Wendelstedt Umpire School and a staff including MiLB Umpire Development supervisors, makes our program a key stepping stone to reaching your ultimate goals.
