Umpires must be 12 before December 31, 2018.

 

Payment and Reimbursement 

Umpires will be required to pay the cost of the clinic up front and will be reimbursed by North Langley Baseball when the following is met.

  • Umpires provide receipt of fees paid
  • Umpires must pass the certification test 
  • Umpires must umpire a minimum of 5 games for North Langley during the 2018 Spring season. 

 

Umpires who have been sponsored by North Langley should expect this to be their main commitment. 

 

 

Level 1   

Level 1 clinics are meant for new and younger umpires and are based on 60-foot baseball diamond.  (Mosquito/11U and below).

 

 

Level 2

 

  •  Level 2 clinics teach 70-foot + baseball (Peewee/13U and up).  They are more advanced in rules and training.  Umpires are expected to attend a Level 1 clinic before attending a Level 2.  Since clinics are free with membership, an umpire could attend both clinics in the same year if they umpire at multiple levels.

If you are unable to attend the clinic in North Langley, there are ongoing clinics until the end of March  please check the BC Umpires Association web site for clinic dates and time
