UMPIRE CLINICS - Fall 2017
Are you interested in umpiring this Fall?
New umpires are required to be at least "League Age 12", and must attend:
one (1) Basic Classroom Rules and Procedures clinic and
one (1) Field Mechanics clinic.
Each will run about 3 hours in length. In the classroom clinic, you will learn how the umpire program is run, how to sign up for games, and we will review the most important rule situations that you will encounter. The Field Mechanics clinic is to teach on-field positioning and responsibilities.
Sunday 8/20 – 10:00am-1:00pm, Classroom training
Thursday 8/24 – 6:00pm – 9:00pm, Classroom training
Tuesday 8/29 – 6:00pm – 9:00pm, Field Training
Thursday 8/31 – 6:00pm – 9:00pm, Field Training
Returning umpires may also attend these classroom and field sessions but it is NOT REQUIRED.
Umpire Training is getting started for the Fall 2017 season. If you have not completed umpire training and wish to do so, please contact: Mitch Hiller at
