Our umpire association formed in the Virginia, District of Columbia and Maryland areas in 2012. Champion Officials Association has over 40 years of experience officiating at all levels of softball. Our Executive Board includes a President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer, and two Members-at-Large.


Whether your interest is in youth softball or you aspire to become an umpire at a national championship, our training will help you qualify for the job. We will help you learn everything you need to know about umpiring softball. Joining Champion will assist you in learning the rules of the game and the role of an umpire. We have umpires who are on the USA Softball Staff at a local and regional level. We also have umpires at all levels, from recreational to high school to college. Some members have worked the highest levels to include international games, World Cup, and the JO World Cup.


Being a part of Champion will be a rewarding. Champion has a valuable pool of resources for training, obtaining games and getting to know the officiating community. Our meetings and training sessions will be the foundation to properly getting you started as a softball umpire. It is always our goal to teach new umpires and refresh veteran umpires to be the best they can be.


We look forward to getting you on the softball diamond so please CONTACT US.
