About Our Organization

The Capital District Softball Umpires Association registers and trains softball umpires.  We also provide officials and umpire assigning services to public high schools and colleges, as well as youth and adult leagues within our jurisdiction (the greater Albany, Saratoga. Glens Falls. Hudson, NY area).  We are affiliated with NYSSO (NYS Softball Officials) and USA Softball.  Subject to availability, we also provide officials for softball events sponsored by PONY and other sanctioning authorities.


Are you interested in becoming a softball umpire? Please contact the officers listed on our Contacts page.

Do you have any teachers, coaches, former athletes(baseball/softball players) interested in becoming a softball umpire?  Please forward them this information.


Umpire development is a result of classroom and field mechanics training.  Due to the large area we service, classes are held in three locations.  Officials are required to attend a minimum number of these sessions (as per our by-laws) as well as a mandatory season ending business meeting to remain in good standing.  A list of meetings, classes and mechanic’s sessions is now available  (see Schedule).
