Our History

We started out working for the City of Mesa assign their Baseball and Flag Football programs. After a couple of years we added the Jv Program for the Arizona Intrerscholastic Association. Through referals we added some Jr High programs. Along with the training of the umpires for the Jr. Highs.

I became the Chief Training for Region II Baseball, which is the training arm for the Arizona Interscholastic Association. I did that for 5 years and for the next 2 years was the president of Region II Baseball, we changed the name to the Arizona Baseball Umpires Association.

As president in 2009 I was fortunate to be the lead commitee member for baseball as Arizona hosted the largest gathering of sports officials at one location for a Sports Summit. It was held in Tucson and was put on by National Association of Sports Officials (NASO), National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) and the Arizona Interscholastic Association.

Over the years through referrals I have added more associations for assigning. We assign all sports, Baseball, Softball, Flag Footballl, Tackle Football, Basketball, Volleyball and Soccer.

Last year we assigned over 8000 games

We have over 250 officials in the system.

We assign by using Arbiter Sports. an assigning service owned by the NCAA
