Junior Umpires 2019



If you are interested in umpiring please fill out and submit the following form.  our Director of Umpires will contact you.

Who Can Be an Umpire?

Kids 13 or older who are not playing in Minors or Majors (Juniors players are eligible to be umpires!). TSLL will provide training in early March for candidates that are accepted. If you have 2 years or less experience, you are REQUIRED to attend 1 of the 2 FULL training sessions. This is usually a Friday night and Saturday morning combination (Dates/Times TBD).

If you have more than 2 years you need to go only to one of the Friday night sessions to go over all the rules as a refresher. Although you will not be required to go to field training, it is encouraged.
