Umpire Training

By SYBA, 02/11/19, 8:30AM CST


As most of you know, there is a shortage of umpires/referees/officials for all sports and baseball is no exception.  SYBA is in the process of setting up a FREE umpire training program. We believe this training is one step in the right direction of developing a larger pipeline of umpires.  The training will be led by experience umpires with the student to instructor ratio not to exceed 20:1. 


SYBA highly recommends anyone interested in umpiring - new and experienced umps - to go through the training this year. All umpires who attend this training will receive a free “clicker” which we hope you will put to good use umping many games this summer.


Dates are Thursday, March 21 from 6-8 PM and Saturday, March 23 from 9-11 AM.  Pick out whichever date works the best for you.  If you are trying out for Traveling Baseball, make sure you know what your tryout schedule is so the umpire training does not conflict with your tryouts.


Umpires must be at least 13 yrs old and have a good knowledge of baseball rules.  This training will provide you with what you need an umpire.  Don’t worry about equipment - SYBA provides all the equipment you will need.
