These are pages of videos used in the February 13th clinic. Keep in mind, the umpires get all these plays right, you have to figure out why.

As you are working Varsity high school games, think about who would nominate for the 2017 High School Varsity Coach of the Year award. The criteria are:
Must coach home games in our jurisdiction
Positive influence on the players
Respect for the umpires
Respect for the game
As mentioned at the General Meeting on January 30th, the WOA sublimated shirt will be required for Varsity high school games this year. There are two options for purchasing these shirts and neither option will be on site at our Vendor Day meeting.
The local option is via Sound Athletic Supply in Auburn/Federal Way. Call them at (253) 839-8045 to place an order and arrange a delivery/pick up option. This is a family run business and you might have to show up at the house to pick up your shirt. Prices for S-XL are $41.95 and go up $2 per shirt per size.
The second option is via Gerry Davis. Call-in or online ordering is available and their price is $49.90 per shirt plus shipping. There is a 7.5% discount available via our WOA affiliation but you have to tell the salesperson or order it on-line via their “Shop by Association” menu.
Failure to wear these shirts during Varsity games will be counted against the offending umpiring organization’s ability to send umpires into the post-season.
