An update for umpires from Melissa Dahlen, Umpire Allocator, and Jim Van Meer, Umpire-in-Chief:
Clinic registration is now open at http://www.bcbua.ca/index.php
New members must register and then sign up for the February 10th clinic, if you are new to umpiring you want to sign up for the Level 1 clinic.
Returning members must renew their membership every year, you can renew at the same link and then sign up for the clinic of your choice. There are age/experience restrictions for registering for Level 2. As far as I know you must be 15+ and have umpired the two previous years ( senior umps if you know more details or restrictions please let me know and I will clarify) .
Registration is $25 for 13 and under, $50 for 14 and older (based on calendar year, if you’re turning 14 this year it will be $50.)
First and second year umps (umps 15 & under) please also attend the Tuesday evening sessions at Alexander Elementary, Feb. 20, 27 and March 6 from 7:00 to 8:00 for more detailed lessons and information, there is a lot of information to cover in just one day.
If you know anyone else interested in umpiring please spread the word!
