Q. Will I get yelled at?
A. While baseball is a highly competitive game, there are rules in place in order to keep arguments at a minimum, as well as to protect the umpires. Collingwood Minor Baseball Association has zero tolerance for abuse to our umpires. If there are problems, you are always encouraged to contact the Umpire-In-Chief and he will ensure that the situation is looked into.
Q. What is the pay rate?
A. The pay rate for umpires in Collingwood depends on the age level you umpire. Umpires will officiate all games between the Sr Rookie Level (6-7 year olds) and the Junior Level (Ages 19+), at the house league, select, and Rep levels. The higher the age level the higher the pay rate. The pay rates are between $25 to $60 per game.
All first year umpires should expect to begin umpiring at the Junior Rookie and Rookie age groups for house league games only. With experience, umpires advance to older divisions.
Training is provided for both new and returning umpires. As a new umpire, you must register with Baseball Ontario and create a profile to register for our clinic in Collingwood. You can register for any of the level 1/2 clinics available.
