Learn from some of the top college and professional umpires on the MAC/UCU Instructor Staff.


Continuing education is critical to the success of the MAC/UCU program. This 2021 clinic season offers both online and live training.

Prior to our fall weekend Showcases, we offering a unique umpire development event presenting classroom instruction online – covering mechanics and insights for the 3-man umpire system. Specific topics as well as special guests are being planned and will be announced as they are confirmed.

Students learn valuable insight into working the mechanics during our class instruction from MAC-UCU instructors. Highly prepared presentations with visual graphics and video give students the type of instruction to learn the best practices and methods when umpiring high-level collegiate games.
