Program Description

EBYA Baseball Commission has once again endorsed the Youth Umpire Program for the 2024 season.   

Requirements to participate in the program:
  • 13-18 years old 
  • Reasonable availability to umpire weeknight and occasional Saturday games at EBYA fields
  • Attend instructional session 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 2024 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. 

Umpires will be paid $40 per game for work 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 the youth umpire program, the players, coaches, and the league.  No shows will not be tolerated and will jeopardize your participation in this program.
