Youth Umpire Program

EBYA Baseball is once again offering our youth umpire program to anyone ages 13 to 18 who is interested in learning about and becoming an umpire for EBYA during our 2023 season.  

If you or someone you know is interested, the EBYA Youth Umpires Training sessions will be held in a series of 1 classroom instructional sessions and 1 on field instructional session. New umpires will be required to attend all both sessions, returning umpires will need to attend the on-field session.


  • Classroom session: March 20, 2023, 7:00PM to 8:30PM at East Brandywine Fire Co., 2096 Bondsville Rd, Downingtown, PA 19335. Enter through the door in the tower and proceed to the second floor.
  • On-Field session: April 2, 2023, 5:00PM to 6:30PM at East Brandywine Community Park, Field A, 440 Dilworth Rd, Downingtown, PA 19335

Please bring your glove and umpire mask if you have one for the on-field session.  If you don't have one, don't worry!  You can still participate in the session! 

All individuals who complete the required sessions will be eligible to be a paid umpire for 2023 with EBYA.   

Don't forget to share and tell your friends!

Program Description

EBYA Baseball Commission has once again endorsed the Youth Umpire Program for the 2023 season.   

Requirements to participate in the program:
  • 13-18 years old
  • Reasonable availability to umpire weeknight and occasional Saturday 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 2023 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. 

Classroom session will be held at East Brandywine Fire Co.
  • March 20, 2023, 7:00PM to 8:30PM
On-field clinic will be held at EB Community Park Field A:
  • April 2, 2023, 5:00PM to 6:30PM
Both returning and new umpires are required to attend both the classroom session and the on-field session.

Umpires will be paid $40 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.
