The training classes will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Monday evenings from Feb. 23 through April 6 at the Union County Administration Building in Elizabeth. The cost of this six-week umpiring course is $160.00. The classes are open to men and women, 18 years of age and older, who are interested in umpiring softball games.

ASA Bat Performance Standards
Changes for Certification Mark and Test Standards for all bats used in the game of ASA Slow Pitch Softball were introduced in the 2013 season.

There is a new Certification Mark to be used on future bat models manufactured for the game of Slow Pitch for 2013 and beyond. The 2000 and 2004 Certification Marks will continue to be valid Marks for the existing Slow Pitch bats.

Any new models produced by the manufacturers will display the new Certification Mark as shown to the right.

All bats currently listed on the approved bat lists remain legal for ASA; ASA will continue to perform random testing of all approved models to verify conformance of the approved bat performance standard, any model found out of compliance could be added to the non-approved list. All models currently listed on the non-approved list will not be allowed in ASA.
