Program Description

EBYA Baseball Commission has once again endorsed the Youth Umpire Program for the 2021 season.   

***This training clinic took place on March 28th. We look forward to providing you with future sessions!***

Requirements to participate in the program:
  • 13-18 years old
  • Reasonable availability to umpire week night games at EBYA fields
  • Attend classroom and on-field instruction and commit to learn rules, umpire mechanics, and game management skills, and implement with confidence

Goals for the program:
  • Provide capable youth to umpire (plate) for EBYA Minor Division games
  • Provide advanced youth to umpire (plate and bases) for EBYA Major Division games
  • Provide opportunity for youth to build on their baseball knowledge, learn a new life-long vocation, and make some money!

The 2021 EBYA Youth Umpire program will look very similar to previous years.  Although the main goal of our Program is to provide umpires for our Minor division games, we will place a greater emphasis on preparing the experienced (and willing) youth umpires to "move-up" and umpire behind the plate and the bases for our Major division games. 

Typically, there would be a classroom training and an on-field clinic session, but this year we have scheduled just an on-field clinic session.  Attendance at these sessions will qualify you for umpiring Minor Division and/or Major Division games at EB Community Park or Spatola Park.

On-field clinic will be held at EB Community Park Field A:
  • TBD for future clinic

Both returning and new umpires are required to attend the on-field session on TBD.

Umpires will be paid $TBD per game behind the plate.

Game assignments will be made based on your availability and an attempt to spread the assignments across the pool of umpires.   Remember, your game assignments represent your commitment to your partner, the players, coaches, and the league.  No shows will not be tolerated and will jeopardize your  participation in this program.

NO SPECIAL EQUIPMENT NECESSARY.  EBYA provides protective equipment for umpiring behind the plate.  All new umpires will receive an official blue umpire shirt.

Please reply to  [email protected] with your intentions to participate in the program this season.
