The Exam must be taken online (see NFHS Exam Website Instructions).  You can download a printable copy below.

The 2020 Tony DeVivo Award applications have been sent via email to all the chapter Presidents and Secretaries.  If your Chapter has not received the application or has any problems, please contact Joe Grady at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Part 1 of the Exam will be available online beginning on January 6, 2020.  It will be open until March 18th.

Part 2 of the Exam will be available from March 19th through April 30th.

As in years past you must get a score of 80% or better to pass the Exam.  We recommend all Chapters use Part 1 as their test for members to be certified but Part 2 can be used if needed for late joining membership. We will leave this up to you. PLEASE stress to all your members the importance of entering your BASEBALL CHAPTER affiliation when they login to take the exam! It becomes very tedious to find Chapter Members and report their test results to your Chapter when the affiliation is for another sport or an arbitrary name not recognized by this organization.

CANCELED: Due to receipt of few paid registrations as of December 20, 2019, the NY Umpire Clinic scheduled for Binghamton NY on January 11, 2020 has been cancelled. All paid registrations will be returned within the next week. We wish to thank all those umpires who expressed interest in attending.


What follows is the schedule for all clinics.  Bear in mind that the interpreter or his assigned representative MUST attend at least one for your chapter to remain eligible for the State Tournament.
