The Cortland Clinic
3-Man Umpire Development
Our instructional staff is comprised of current and former Triple-A professional umpires, current and former NCAA postseason umpires, and leaders in the umpiring community.
September 24 – September 26 | Only 12 Spots Available
This clinic is designed for umpires currently working NCAA Division I, umpires looking to advance to NCAA Division I, or umpires wanting to advance to NCAA Division II or Division III post-season.
UCU/MAC offers innovative instruction preparing umpires to work three-man mechanics at the NCAA Division I Conference level. UCU/MAC believes in an intense and professional approach to instruction of three-man umpire mechanics, emphasizing base work augmented by live game evaluation and on-field drills and instruction.
We are only accepting 12 umpires for this clinic! This is a great opportunity for learning the umpire craft in a small group. All registrations are subject to approval.
UCU President Chris Marshall, a four-time Super Regional Umpire and Conference Coordinator for four Division I Conferences, leads this clinic’s talented staff of instructors – including lead instructor NCAA Division I Super Regional Umpire Brian deBrauwere.
The clinic will take place on the campus of SUNY-Cortland.

MAC/UCU attempts to accommodate your travel plans. Still, umpires should be prepared to participate in the evening of training on September 24th and a full day of training/games on September 25th and 26th.
Umpires are responsible for their own lodging, transportation and meals.
Clinic tuition is $325 and includes all activities – classroom, on-field training, and evaluation games. All registrations are subject to approval. If an umpire is not approved, they will receive a FULL REFUND of any monies paid.
All attendees must confirm full vaccination for COVID 19, confirm a negative antigen test on September 23/24, or confirm a negative PCR test between September 20-23. We will ask the question. We are not going to check cards or tests – we will use the honor system, but these things must be done.
Register by September 18
Registration closes on September 18 or when the capacity for this clinic is filled. Umpires approved for this clinic will be notified by September 19 or earlier.
This umpire development opportunity is a joint training program offering by Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Umpires and the United Collegiate Umpires.
