New Umpires should attend A level clinics.  Please attend a AA if you miss or plan on missing one of the scheduled A clinics. 

Umpires under the age of 14 MUST have a parent/guardian at the field when they work a game for the entire game.  This is a Department of Labor requirement.

2023 Umpire Clinics

Umpire clinics will be conducted via zoom on selected Thursday's and in person at the DG Rec Center on Sunday mornings.  Attendance  at the assigned level clinics is mandatory for all umpires at each level. If an umpire is not available to attend a session,  please let the trainers and Umpire director know via email as soon as possible. Umpires that cannot attend all training sessions may be removed from the program. Makeup sessions are not guaranteed to be added to the schedule. The ZOOM link will be sent to all registered umpires in advance of the meeting. The Sunday meeting time of 7:30 AM is NOT a typo - trainers will be in the gym at the Rec Center bright and early on Sunday mornings!
