Volunteer Umpires Needed!!
Welcome to Oceanside American Little Leagues site. With a new season on the horizon it is time for our umpires to shake off the rust and get ready. OALL uses a combination of Adult volunteer umpires and paid youth umpires. For adults this is an opportunity to learn about another aspect of the game, give back to the league and enjoy the best seat in the house. For our youth umpires this is an opportunity to stay involved with the game, earn some money as well as develop the character and poise needed to be an umpire.
The league will be hosting an umpire informational night and we encourage anyone who is interested in umpiring this year (including past umpires) to come and learn more about what it takes to be an umpire and what is in store for next year.
Requirements for being an umpire
Umpiring is hard work, the parents, fans, players and coaches all have their eyes on you and expect nothing but the best from you. You need to know the rules, know the fundamental mechanics and manage the game in a positive and fair way. That said there are some mandatory requirements for being an umpire:
- Interest in umpiring
- Little league 12 years old or older
- Have taken the basic (level 1 and rookie umpires) or advanced (level 2 and up) umpiring mechanics training
- Have participated in the rules clinic
