Umpires Needed

 

Snohomish Little League is recruiting umpires for the 2021 baseball and softball season. No prior experience is necessary!!

The most overlooked requirement for a competitive baseball game is the umpire. Without a volunteer umpire, managers and coaches must umpire the game, taking them away from their players and reducing the overall value of the game for those players. Umpires who remain with Snohomish Little League will have opportunities for subsidized or free gear and clothing, more advanced training, and other benefits. Not to mention a free hot dog and soda after the game!!

If you are interested in becoming an umpire for SLL, or you just want more information, please email us at [email protected] or [email protected] All volunteer umpires will need to complete League volunteer registration and either the District 1 umpire training or another training program offered by Snohomish Little League.

From Little League International

 

Little League® Baseball and Softball, as part of its continuing online education initiative, offered virtual training and explanation of each of nine official playing rules found in Little League’s rulebooks.

Umpire instructors from several of Little League’s Region Centers moderated these free-to-access presentations that provided in 45- to 60-minute sessions. We’d encourage you to download the Little League Rulebook App (LittleLeague.org/RulebookApp) and review the materials available at LittleLeague.org/Rules, as well.

Recordings of the virtual rules sessions presented are available at Little League University.
