Officials

AAD/USSSA Baseball welcomes all current as well as novice umpires (ages 16 and up) or anyone who is interested in working in an enjoyable work environment.

AAD/USSSA Umpires are TRAINED PROFESSIONALS officiating the game of baseball in the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho Metroplex competitive environment. As an AAD/USSSA Umpire you will be expected to.

·       Attend two (2) Mandatory Clinics per year, Spring and Fall

·       Complete and submit the current Officials Registration Paperwork

·       Read and apply the current AAD / USSSA Officials Handbook - Hard copies will be provided at the clinic. 

·       Purchase a NFHS case book and Umpire manual (read these as well)

·       Purchase the proper uniforms

·       Purchase the proper equipment

The mandatory clinics give our expert instructors the opportunity to teach new (and refresh returning) umpires on the proper mechanics to become a successful official.
 
The AAD/USSSA Season kicks-off with our annual St. Patrick’s Day Weekend Tournament in March and concludes with our annual Veteran’s Day Weekend Tournament in November.  In addition to these tournaments, AAD/USSSA also hosts a Cinco de Mayo Tournament, The USSSA State Championships as well as a Labor Day Weekend Tournament, Balloon Fiesta Tournament and Veteran's Day Tournament in the fall.
 
In between tournaments, Officials have an opportunity to hone their skills during league play. League play runs from the last weekend of March thru the middle of June and then picks up again in August and concludes in October.
 
All umpires in good standing have an opportunity to officiate anywhere from 60-90 games per season.
