North Shore Baseball Association (NSBA) is seeking new adult and youth umpires for the 2024 season. If you are interested, please read below for more details. Previous or current Little League umpires are welcome to sign up as well!
Clinics will be a combination of online and in person for 2024.
- Online clinics details can be found here: https://bcbua.ca/2024-online-clinic-schedule
- In person training for officials will be held by NSBA on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at Sutherland Secondary School – Medium Gym (1860 Sutherland Ave, North Vancouver). Level 1 officials will attend at 8:30 AM and Level 2 officials will attend at 12:30 PM.
In-person clinic registration can be found on the NSBA website here: https://northshorebaseball.ca/umpires/ or on the BCBUA website here:
- Returning Members: https://bcbua.ca/?fd=members&pg=clinics
- New Members: https://bcbua.ca/clinic_registration
For returning officials, please note that you need to attend 2 separate Level 2 clinics (Offense and Defense, both online and in-person) in subsequent years to be fully qualified.
If you are an experienced Little League umpire or have other relevant experience, please reach out to email@example.com in order to determine whether you might pursue an accelerated path including completion of a Level 2 clinic.
NSBA will reimburse the BCBUA membership fees for any umpires who complete at least 5 assignments in 2024. Keep in mind that you must be at least one age-group older than the games you will be officiating (for example, 18U aged or older umpires will be assigned to 15U games, etc.), and we need adult umpires to officiate any 18U baseball games. Umpiring is a great way to stay involved in the game and improve rule knowledge for both adults and youth!
There are multiple ongoing clinics now through the end of April 2024. Additional clinics are likely to be added in April. If you are unable to attend the NSBA clinics, you can attend a nearby clinic in order to get the practice on the field. Please complete the registration process on the BCBUA website and register for a clinic which works for you.
