We are looking to add to our roster of responsible and talented umpires and game facilitators.
Leaside Baseball will train and pay you!
We are a baseball crazy community and we'd love to have you or your child be a part of our team! Umpiring is a great opportunity to further your passion for baseball, gives you a sense of accomplishment, and is a meaningful employment opportunity. And without you, our players can't play!
We have two types of roles that we are seeking, and individuals may participate in one or both of them:
For T-Ball and Coach Pitch House League games (players aged 4 to 7 years of age) we are looking for professional, high-energy individuals to run pre-game player instruction and in-game facilitation. Much of the job is making sure that the games run smoothly and that the players are learning and having a good time. Baseball knowledge is preferred but not absolutely required. A love for working with kids and their families is a must!
For Rookieball House League, and all levels of Select and Rep Games (players aged 8 to 14 years of age) we are looking for professional and reliable individuals that have experience in the game of baseball. For those that have never umpired before you may start in House League or Rookieball games, and those with experience will have opportunities throughout the baseball levels and age groups.
Umpires (and Game Facilitators) will be compensated based on their experience and level of certification at competitive rates. Most of our games are within the Leaside community, however for those that have access to a car there are also bonuses for games that are umpired outside of Leaside.
In the early spring Leaside Baseball; will facilitate Level 1 Umpiring Certificate Training at Trace Manes. Please indicate your interest by clicking berlow and we'll send you the registration information. Level 1 certification is required for all Rep and Select Game Umpires, and is preferred for House League Peewee Umpires.
Later in the spring we will also be providing training for T-Ball and Coach Pitch House League Game Facilitators.
All Game Umpires and Game Facilitators must be at least 12 years of age. Adults are welcome. All umpires must renew or upgrade their certifications each year.
