The NCAA will be holding meetings in Chicago on January 23 and Baltimore on January 30.  The NCAA pre-season exam will start on Monday, February 1.  Go to ArbiterSports for more information.

The CBUAO pre-season exam will be available Monday, February 8.  Umpires working for CBUAO only can take this exam in place of the NCAA exam.  Those that take the NCAA exam and pass are not required to take the CBUAO exam.

CBUAO will hold preseason BASEBALL meetings on Saturday 1/30/16 at 4pm at the NCAA Baltimore clinic (Hyatt Regency Baltimore, 300 Light Street, Baltimore, MD 21202 ) and Sunday 1/31/16 at the DANBURY PARKS AND RECREATION CENTER, 7 East Hayestown Road in the Danbury, CT at 12 noon. Umpires are required to attend one of these meetings in order to receive spring or summer assignments from the CBUAO in 2016. Attendance requirements can also be met by attending an alternate/approved NCAA meeting. There is no pre-registration for either meeting. Only umpires who have registered for assignments through the CBUAO for 2016 will be permitted to attend these meetings. Direct all questions to nzibelli@cbuao.com.

The Joe Driscoll Foundation has been established in memory of longtime CBUA Member & Past President and 3-time College World Series Umpire Joe Driscoll.

In 2007,  Joe died of a massive heart attack as he was preparing to leave for his game at Tufts University.

Joe was truly a legend in college baseball umpiring. His generosity and willingness to give back to the game he loved guided us to establish The Joe Driscoll Foundation in his memory.

Each year, the Joe Driscoll Foundation awards $2000 scholarships to students who are related to a member of our association.
