Softball Canada Umpire Recognition Pin Program

Softball Canada introduced a new service recognition program in 2019, which was to be presented to the umpires in 2020.  Due to the world pandemic the presentation of these pins was delayed.  The ASUA will plan a special presentation when we are able at a future date, but in the meantime these pins will be delivered to the Zone executive to distribute.

The province would like to acknowledge the following individuals for their years of service to the umpire program:

*The service pins are presented to umpires who reached 5,10,15,20, and 25+ based on your anniversary calculated from 2019 and dates were pulled from 2019 national exam information, supplied by officials.  If you did not complete the 2019 exam you were not included in this program.
