Does your child enjoy playing baseball?  Have they thought about umpiring a game or does your child ever express their opinions about plays and calls when they are watching or participating in a game?

If your child is 10 years old or older (born 2013 or earlier) during the 2023 calendar year and wants to learn how to be an umpire and to umpire a few of our Howe Sound Minor Ball Association games, have them come to one of the umpire clinic sessions that is being offered!

Essential Life Skills:

Umpiring will allow your child to develop skills they can take with them throughout their journey in life.

Umpiring allows your child to exercise social skills such as communication, anger management, and conflict resolution.  The interaction with other umpires, players, coaches, and administrators will help them become more socially adept.  It will also develop their knowledge of the rules of baseball.

Problem-solving and decision-making are essential skills that an umpire will develop.  The ability to make timely, logical decisions and solve problems is a great tool for any youth’s skill set.  As an umpire, your child will be challenged to make decisions during the course of a game and throughout their career.
