Fellow Umpires the 2018 Season is fast approaching! It's time to pull the uniform and equipment out of storage. Pull out the rule book and do some reading. Start at section one and work your way through it. Talk with friends who might want to umpire for the first time.

This year the classroom sessions will be held at the Salvation Army House of Hope at 3303 32 Avenue, just behind Staples. Level 1 will be on Tuesday, April 3 from 6 pm to 9 pm and Level 2 Defence will be on Wednesday April 4 from 6 pm to 9 pm. The practical sessions will be at Marshall Field on Saturday April 7, with level 1 in the morning and level 2 in the afternoon. Please bring a ball glove to the field session if you have one.

New Umpires: To register for the clinic go to the BCBUA website and find the clinic page. This will contain information on all clinics taking place in the province. Locate the Level 1 Vernon clinic and follow the steps to register and pay the registration fee.

Returning Umpires: Log into the BCBUA website using your registration number from last year. Do not create a new account. Pay your registration fee, then proceed to select your clinic. If you are 13 or under, choose Level 1. If you are 14 or older and you passed the Level 1 quiz last year, select Level 2 Defence.

The registration fee will be reimbursed for VBA umpires on your first pay cheque.
