District 9 2017 Umpire Training

Hey, Blue! It’s time to find the gear and start knocking off the rust. Here’s the scoop on D9 training this year.

Some highlights:

  • We’re continuing to focus district training on preparing umpires for post-season games. In that spirit, we’ve reduced and re-focused our pre-season training. We’ll also offer classes between the end of the regular season and the start of all-stars.
  • As always, anyone is welcome to attend (including managers, board members, and players), but the content is geared at umpires with some experience who want to improve to postseason levels of officiating.
  • If you’re new or newish to umpiring, you should go to training in your local league. Check with your UIC—if your league needs assistance crafting a class, D9 will send help!
  • We’re still providing primary training for 90’ games. If you’re a good Majors level umpire, come to training and then give a few games a try—they’re a lot of fun!

Thanks in advance for the great work you’re going to do this season for all of our kids!
