Did you know that there are opportunities for junior Baseballers to become qualified umpires?
Baseballers who are eligible to play in U14 or U17 age divisions are invited to be part of this program, which involves receiving training (fully funded by the club), and being mentored by more senior umpires until such time as you can umpire your own games.
