Three Steps to Being a CCLL Umpire

Step 2

CCLL Local Umpire Training

Dates will be scheduled in September to train new prospective umpires.

Three hour on-field rules and field clinic for our new local umpiring crew! Whether you hope to do a lot of games, help out for a few, are not sure yet, or are a coach, this training is for you. Led by CCLL Umpire-in-Chief Josh Novikoff. 

Step 3

First Game Watch and Learns/Rotations

You will be paired ideally with the CCLL Umpire in Chief or another more experienced umpire for your first game(s). Now you will be ready to umpire, whether as part of a two-person crew or on your own!
