NIF Trophy

This reward program has been available to USA Softball umpires since 1986.  Today, it is considered the highest level of reward program for USA Softball Umpires, not including the USA Softball Hall of Fame Umpire classification or ISF certification.  There are currently over 2,200 members certified with the National Indicator Fraternity (NIF), with approximately 100-125 added annually.  To qualify the umpire must have umpired or served as an USA Softball National Championship UIC or assistant UIC for three USA Softball Nationals, or can substitute attendance at an USA Softball Advanced Umpire School for one of the nationals.  Approval by the local commissioner and the Regional UIC is mandatory for acceptance.  The program is popular for those umpires who have advanced to the next level.  It is a select group, considering that there are nearly 50,000 umpires nationwide.
