We are seeking volunteers for umpiring for the upcoming spring season.

To qualify as an umpire you must have completed at least the Level 1 

umpire course.

To umpire in the higher divisions you will require the Level 2 qualification. 

Click here for details of upcoming Ump Training Clinics.

Note that BCBUA requires that umpires pay yearly membership fees.  Most BCBUA training clinics are free of charge if an umpire's membership fees are paid.

Umpires will be scheduled only for age divisions lower than the umpire.  

A Bantam age player will only umpire PeeWee and lower, etc. 

Umpires will be scheduled on a rotating basis, i.e., as equitably 

as we can make it and payment to the umpires will be made monthly 

by cheque.  

We will employ an umpiring calendar accessed from our website. 

Details on how to request games and other scheduling issues will come 

out in a further email from our umpire coordinator once the master list

 is created.

If you (or your son or daughter) is interested in umpiring games this year,

please send an email to our 

Umpire Scheduler,  Tom Griffiths.  Email is

The email should include the umpire's name, email contact, primary and 

secondary phone numbers and umpire level achieved,

 i.e., Level 1 or Level 2.

 Thank you.
