It's funny because some states, Oregon for example, that says do not use NFHS at all, use CCA exclusively. Other states like NJ and FL use NFHS to a fault. To be honest I don't go to clinics for rules anyway, I go for mechanics. If they are teaching pro mechanics, no big deal. Changing three or four rotations is easy.

I can credit NFHS about 100% with my departure from HS ball.

They are idiots. Sorry but it needs to be said!

The only thing worse than the body itself are the umpires that swear by it and use it as some sort of way to make them feel important or more "qualified" than they actually are.

And HS ball appreciates your decision. You're too good for that level.

I don't know if this would be any good to attend guys...NO INSTRUCTORS ARE NFHS certified!!!

Lol. (So ridiculous!)

If you work primarily for an NFHS group than I don't see what's wrong with wanting to attend a primarily NFHS clinic.

Disclaimer- I don't work primarily for an NFHS group

My point has been that the main focus of most clinics is plate work. Base work and plate coverages are next on the importance scheme, rules are way down the list or not discussed at all. So to me, no matter what system they are teaching, plate work is plate work. If they learn a few rotations that are different that your group, that is easy to change. However, getting your 90, making pivots, reading trouble balls and most other base mechanics are the same. There are minor differences between pro, CCA and NFHS but not enough to keep me from going to a clinic or recommending it to any of my guys. Anytime my guys can attend a clinic, I'm all for it.

Why do you say this? I understand they have a few rules that are a little wacky. However, most of their differences are because of it being for student athletes. They make rules for sportsmanship, participation and safety. Their mechanics straight up suck and should not be used. I suggest using CCA but some use pro. I use CCA because enough of our guys work college and instead of learning two sets I try to make it easy.

      I have attended this clinic along with many of my past and current collegiate baseball partners.  Members on this board that have attended are ACPAR72, Ironman and I am sure several others.
      The instructor staff at this clinic are many of the same instructors that work other midwest umpire camps and clinics.  All work college baseball and many worked professional baseball.
      There will be live games to work.  In the recent past there have been both collegiate/junior college and high school level games to work.
      I have personally worked collegiate baseball with at least ten new to college baseball umpires that were assigned games because of their performance at this clinic.
      Past instructors include; current AAA Umpire Paul Clemons of Topeka, current AA Umpires Tyler Olsen and Grant Conrad. Former AAA and Major League Fill-in Umpire Seth Buckminster,  2017 NCAA Super Regional Umpires Bill McGuire of Omaha and Mark Wagers of  Wichita. 2017 NCAA Regional Umpire and former minor league umpire Tim Cordill, Former minor league umpires Mark Hutchison, Carlos Martinez and others on staff in the Big XII, Big 10, Conference USA, Missouri Valley Division I Conferences.
      Highly recommend you attend if you are interested in learning the 3 man collegiate umpiring system.
      I am not being paid or otherwise rewarded or remunerated for this endorsement.  I know that you will get great instruction, be treated well, meet lifelong colleagues and friends and learn a lot.  It WILL make you a better umpire.  PDF Flyer attached.
