The BGSA is recruiting umpires for the upcoming season.
Without game officials, the sport program and the athletes suffer. It is critical for today and the future that new umpires are properly trained each year for all levels of competition. The role of a sport official is to ensure fair play. If it isn't fair, it isn't fun.
Why be an umpire?
- It gives you the “Best Seat in the House”
- You get to meet some great people
- Great part-time summer employment
- Learn valuable life lessons
What does it take?
- Confidence and pride
- Hustle, physical and mental alertness
- A sense of fair play and impartiality
- Willingness to learn and gain experience
Experience is not required. Umpires will attend an Umpire Clinic hosted by the BGSA and will be mentored by an Umpire In Chief throughout the season.
Applicants must be at least 14 years old, adults are also welcome to apply.
