With the baseball season fast approaching, PMBA is happy to announce the first set of umpiring clinics for 2024. Clinics are open to anyone 12 years of age or older and baseball experience is not required! Umpires are assigned games based on their experience and comfort level, and we are building up our mentorship program to support and assist newer umpires.
Clinic details are below:

Baseball Alberta follows the National Umpire Certification Program (NUCP). Level 1 is a two year program for first and second year umpires. Level 2 is for umpires going into their third year of umpiring. More information can be found at https://www.baseballalberta.com/en/page/umpires_about/about_the_nucp.html.
For those interested but unable attend these dates, PMBA will be hosting our main clinic in April, 2024. More information on these clinics will be emailed out shortly. Additionally, there will be clinics held in other communities in the area if you are interested but unable to attend clinics within PMBA. A list of these clinics can be found at https://www.baseballalberta.com/en/page/umpires/nucp_clinics.html.
If you are interested in umpiring, but have questions or require additional information, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to participate in an umpire clinic, registration can be done at https://page.spordle.com/baseball-alberta/clinics.
Umpires are one of the key supports required for youth to have to full experience of playing baseball within PMBA. I would encourage any PMBA athlete, sibling, parent, relative or friend to consider joining our umpiring ranks. Umpires are paid based on the age level they are officiating and schedules can be completely flexible.
