AMBA Umpire Clinic Announcement

Aldergrove Minor Baseball Association will once again be hosting a one-day Umpire Clinic on Saturday, March 2nd at Parkside Centennial Elementary from 8 am to 5 pm.

This clinic will be split into two groups per past practice.

Level 1 – Which is for all 13U/Pee Wee aged players or older (including adults) who are in their first or second year of officiating, it will focus on umpiring 11U/Mosquito level games.

Level 2 – Which is for all 15U/Bantam aged players and older (including adults) who have three years or more of officiating, it will focus on umpiring 11U/Pee Wee thru 25U/Junior Mens level games.

There will be new changes from Baseball Canada for the umpires this year as with last. Every new umpire will have to be a Level 1 for two years (Take the Level 1 clinic for two years no matter how old they are) and after two years each umpire will be a level 2 for at least two years. The clinic information will be divided into two parts (a year “A” and a year “B”) for each Level. All second-year umpires will be level 1 next year no matter how old you are. All third-year umpires will have to take Level 2 again next year. All umpires with more than 4-year umpiring experience will be grandfathered to Level 2 and will be allowed to try for their Level 3 if they want to or stay at Level 2.

If you wish to umpire in Aldergrove this year you must attend a clinic. If you know of any potential umpires (adults or players who are maybe just moving up to the peewee level, please forward this email to them).

To attend this clinic, you first need to register with BCBUA (BC Baseball Umpires Association) If you registered previously, your login information is still in the system. Please register for the appropriate “Aldergrove Clinic”, and make sure you DO NOT PAY…when the payment option comes up when registering, click on the “cheque” option in the drop-down and then AMBA will pay for all of our homegrown umpires and then deduct the cost of the course from your first pay period (end of May).

If you have any questions, please contact Rob Ross at umpires@aldergroveminorbaseball.com
