Nobscot Valley Softball Umpires Association, Inc. (NVSUA) was formally established in the mid 1960's. NVSUA is a 501(c)3 organization and is affiliated and governed by the policies and playing rules of the USA Softball which is the National Governing Body of softball in the United States. NVSUA has three (3) major objectives, as follows:
1. Train men and women to administer USA Softball playing rules in the capacity of umpire to players within town/leagues that are under the jurisdiction of NVSUA.
2. Promote a safe and enjoyable environment for all players/towns registered with USA Softball.
3. Work with coaches and players to increase their knowledge of softball.
USA Softball of Massachusetts offers training one or more times per year consisting of Classroom/Zoom Sessions for rules, mechanics, and general knowledge. NVSUA then provides on field hands-on training and new umpire mentorship following the classroom sessions.
