2019 Umpires Wanted!

If you are interested in umpiring the girls and ladies fast pitch games this summer, please e-mail the Umpire in Chief - Richard Michauville.  Go to the ABOUT tab and pull down CONTACT INFO for a direct email link.

The season runs from late May until mid August and includes games at Kelly, Handley and Amelia soft ball fields.  Games are generally held between 6 and 10 p.m. Monday to Thursday and occasional weekend tournaments (see calendar).  Umpires are paid per game and are required to complete a police check prior to the start of the season.

If you are new to umpiring, resources are available to assist you in learning this skill and starting with younger divisions.  There will be an umpire information clinic held mid-May for new and returning officials.  Protective equipment (chest, shins, mask) can be made available, however you will need some personal gear.

High School Volunteer Hours Available

Over the course of the 2019 summer fast pitch season, there will be several opportunities for high school students to accumulate volunteer hours towards their high school diploma.

Students may help at:  information/registration desks at various venues;  supervise the bouncy castle or work at our BBQ/concession stand during our fun tournament in June and final playoffs in August;  help with the final banquet;  etc.

Preference may be given to high school students who are registered players with the NBMGSA.

Students interested in this opportunity should obtain the proper forms from their high school office prior to the end of school in June, in order that they have the forms available in the summer.  Any directors or executive members of the board of the association may approve and sign these forms.
