CADET PROGRAM

The cadet program consists of approximately 10 classroom sessions and 1 on-field mechanics session. The NJSFU cadet program will improve the knowledge, skills, abilities, professionalism, and confidence of the cadets. At the end of the program, each cadet will be required to pass the NFHS baseball and/or softball test.

Becoming an NJSFU umpire has a lot of great benefits…
 
Working games. There is almost an unlimited amount of games to be worked. Once certified, you can work the freshman, junior varsity, and varsity level. There are no "minimum requirements" in the form of time or games before you can work at the varsity level. The best umpires get the best games.

Insurance. When you become a member of the NJSFU, you are covered under the National Federation High School Insurance Policy. The cost is a part of your annual dues, and therefore, you pay nothing extra. Insurance covers all baseball and softball games, not just high school contests.
 
Training and Materials. As a part of the cadet program, you receive rule books, handouts, power points, and a multitude of hands on training that will better your knowledge and skills.
 
No assignor fees. It's as simple as that.
