Happy New Year to everyone! I would like to take this time to introduce myself and provide some information about 2019 with USA Softball of Arizona. My name is James Edmunds and I am the new AZ State Umpire In Chief/Assignor/Umpire Trainer. I have been an umpire, assignor and umpire trainer for over 10 years and look forward to working with all of you.

First I would like to thank Mr. Bobby Pena, USA Softball of Arizona Commissioner and Eurby White J.O. Commissioner for this amazing opportunity. Thank you for trusting in me to do a great job for this awesome organization.

Training - We plan to give you the training you need in order to be the best you can be. Training will be provided in our four Az Districts; Central-Metro Phoenix, Southern-Tucson, Northern-Flagstaff and Western-Havasu/Laughlin/Kingman/Yuma. A thorough two day training session will take place on March 2-3, 2019 in Chandler where all USA Softball registered umpires in state are invited to attend.

Opportunites - There are many umpiring opportunites out of state and large tournaments that we will send you to. Our enhanced training support and resources will help you achieve these goals.

Umpires Goals - Our intentions are to get to know you and to find out your short term and long term umpire goals. We are excited to showcase our USA Softball of Arizona Umpires in our upcoming Az tournaments and have no doubt we will see great success. It is important to us that you feel comfortable talking to your district UIC's and having them vested in your future.

In closing; I want to stress that my door is alway open and would be happy to discuss with you your thoughts and asperations.
