The Inter-Athletic Council of Officials (IACO), Metro-Chicago is hosting Beginning Umpire Clinic, designed for new Umpires with little or no experience via  remote learning.

Simply put, you can get clinic credit in the comfort of your home in front of your computer.

Umpires who have not attended an IHSA clinic or who have never umpired a high school game will find this clinic extremely helpful. Our goal is to help you acquire the knowledge necessary to improve your skills as an umpire, get you connected with a Local Officials Association (LOA) and ultimately assigned to high school games. We encourage experienced officials from other sports who are just starting as a softball or baseball umpires to join us.

We will also assist in registering new umpires. Umpires from youth and park district leagues are welcome to attend. The clinic will be directed by Illinois High School Association Certified Clinicians. The IHSA registered official who attends at least 3 of the 4 sessions may receive Level 1 Baseball or Softball Clinic Credit.
