Calling all Potential Umpires
Ump yours! Your favourite game that is!!
If you have a love of the best game there is, and are interested in a unique way to be involved in it, we need you.
If you are 12 or older and you are looking for a fun, after school job with a super flexible schedule, we need you.
If you are a parent who wants to hang out at the diamond with their son or daughter (and get paid), we need both of you.
Becoming an Umpire is simple:
- 1. Possess a basic understanding and appreciation of the game and its rules.
- 2. Go to REGISTER and get registered as an umpire.
- 3. Sign-up for your online Level 1 Umpire clinic (free for BCBUA members)
- 4. Revel in the power and glory your new role in baseball affords
- 5. Get into some games and have some fun.
- 6. Bask in the appreciation of the West Kelowna Minor Baseball Association
Membership in the BC Baseball Umpires Association costs $35 for 13 and under. 14 and up is $65. Membership fees are reimbursed by WKMBA when a minimum number of games worked is reached (to be determined, but usually about 6 games).
