The "better" collegiate spring tournaments are "umpire by invitation". IOW, you need to know someone, or they need to know the umpire. In years past, the National/Olympic team have played in one or more of these tournaments.

Usually, a very good level of ball. Once had an umpire tell me after working her first game with Finch and Fernandez throwing, "boy, they threw an awful lot of pitches that sounded like strikes".
