Become an MOA Umpire
The Margarita Officials Association is actively
seeking applicants for membership to begin officiating the sport of
Softball. There are no specific requirements for becoming a member of the
MOA, other than an appreciation of the game of Softball, a desire to learn
the officiating profession and an interest in helping youth of all ages.
Prior experience as an umpire, while helpful, is not required.
We generally hold training programs for members
throughout the year. New members wishing to umpire High School softball must attend the scheduled MOA
training meetings prior to the start of the HS season Please check our
Training page for scheduled dates and times.
New members are encouraged to attend all meetings,
and are also required to attend training classes as well as pass the NFHS test.
Members who participate in the training classes will be eligible to officiate
sub-varsity high school games. As new members gain experience, they will be
assigned to high school varsity games at various levels. Umpires transferring
from other associations or states may be assigned high school varsity games
depending on their level of experience and performance, as determined by the
