Due to COVID-19 and an attempt to keep student-athletes safe, the NCAA has adjusted its helmet rule for this season only.
Effective immediately, student-athletes may wear their personal helmets even if they do not match team colors. This rule adjustment only applies if the personal helmet meets NCAA helmet safety requirements.
I encourage you to consider signing this petition which would extend the NCAA softball season into the summer rather than an abrupt cancellation.
In just a couple days, the 2020 NCAA umpire exam will expire. If you’re looking to umpire NCAA softball and want to be available for post-season assignments, you must register and complete this test with a passing score of 90% or above. That test closes at 5pm on Thursday January 30.
The test is available on the NCAA Central Hub.
The NCAA Softball test is available via the Central Hub in Arbiter. The test is open until Thursday, January 30 at 4pm Central Time.
