Pitchers Hands?

Played in 1 tournament and the ump says hands have to be apart when the pitcher steps on the mound, takes the sign and hands come together.
Played in2nd Tournament and the ump says hands have to be together when the pitcher steps on the mound, takes the sign and then goes into her pitch.
I'm totally frustrated especially when they send the baseball umpires to softball games.
(High school games)
Please clarify.
Thanks

EVERY softball rule set requires the hands to be separated when stepping onto the pitching plate, and remain separated while simulating taking a signal.
