The Blue Convention is a major event for umpires organized by Softball Canada every three years. Officials of ALL levels from across the country (and internationally) meet to discuss a variety of topics and participate in a series of workshops to learn and improve their umpiring skills.

The event attracts the top presenters from across the country and the world, discussing interesting topics that are designed to attract both Fast Pitch and Slo-Pitch umpires.

Start planning now to attend! Hook up with a buddy and share accommodations! Bring a fellow official along! Invite an umpire from the USA or some other country! Workshops are geared to be useful for the rookie umpire right through to the elite umpire. Guest speakers are always entertaining and informative.
