About Us

Our History

LA Coastline Umpires Association is a fastpitch softball umpire organization, founded 15 years ago by Debbi Lauderback and a group of Veteran USA Softball and NCAA Collegiate officials. Our objective: to provide a high-quality instructional program in the training, preparation, and development of fastpitch softball umpires. We are committed continually to improving our unit through monthly round-tables, training clinics, a mentor and observation program, computerized assigning, and a website. We provide umpiring services to USA Softball girls fastpitch leagues, ‘A’ travel ball friendlies, and youth fastpitch tournaments in the Los Angeles, South-bay and Orange County areas. For information about our monthly round-table meetings or how you can get involved in our unit, please email us!

Please accept our invitation to join us at our next meeting. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 6:00 pm. Meetings are free – please bring a friend along!

LA Coastline Umpires Association is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) fastpitch softball umpire organization. We are a year-round training organization established to provide a high-quality instructional program in the training, preparation, and development of fastpitch softball umpires. The underlying reason that we have our association is to try to keep people current and to stay sharp, and to keep them thinking about the rules. Year-round, LA Coastline members continue training. Monthly round-table meetings include case plays and discussions; unusual situations members dealt with or errors they made – along with good old fashioned camaraderie. We have a variety of workshops and clinics that members can select from based on what umpiring goals each member has.
